A Wonderful World


I saw forests of green, clean oceans too
I saw rivers bloom for me and you
And I think to myself it was a wonderful world

we bought cars that spew and rode jets that bite
bought junk by day, burned big lights at night
so the hot burning day, melted the polar ice made the hot sticky night
so the hot burning day, melted the polar ice made the hot sticky night
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself it was a wonderful world
And I thought to myself, what a wonderful world F / Bb / / / F /

The colors of the drought flood smoke hurricane, so dark in the sky C7 F
Are also on the faces of people cryin' by C7 F
I see friends shaking heads, saying What did we do? Dm C Dm C
They're really saying I could have loved you. Dm F#dim7 Gm7 F#dim7 Gm7 C7

(ver)
I see Babies die, they'll never grow
They'll miss so much beauty that I got to know
And I think to myself it was a wonderful world (F / Am7b5 / )

A Wonderful Cool World /stele c15

Write or co-write with Stele a better version of this parody for chance to win an XOEarth cape and $400. Record too if you would like.
Here are some lyric/parody ideas I have so far. I am going to do an optimistic version too. Thanks, Stele.

parody I found by Garrett
I see trees a-blaze, brown roses too.
I see C02, from me and you.
And I think to my self, what a horrible world.
I see skies a black, and clouds of gray.
Bad Unblessed Day, and the dark forsaken night.
And I think to my self, What a Horrible World.
The colors of the rainbow, blocked out from darkend skies.
Thanks to all the cars, from people going by.
I see friend shaking hands, saying how do you do.
There really saying, cough ah-coo
I see babies cry, with typhoid that coop.
They'll live much worse, than I'll ever know.
And I think to my self, What a Horrible World.
Yes, I think to my self, What a Horrible World. Garrett
