Eh, yeah, wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl, things could be pretty
But underneath this there is a secret
That nobody can reveal
Mm hm

Take a look at the world
And the state that it's in today
I am sure you'll agree
We all could make it a better way

With our love put together
Everybody learn to love each other
Instead of fussing and fighting
Cheating, backbiting
Scandalizing and hating

Baby, we could have a
Wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl, things could be pretty
But underneath this there is a secret
That nobody can reveal
Yeah now

Man and woman, girl and boy
Let us try to give a helping hand
This I know and I'm sure
That with love we all could understand

This is our world, can't you see
Everybody wants to live and be free
Instead of fussing and fighting
Cheating, backbiting
Scandalizing and hating

Yeah, we could have a
Wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl, things could be pretty
But underneath this there is a secret
That nobody can reveal
Mm, yeah yeah

Talking 'bout the
Wonderful world, beautiful people
You and your girl (talking 'bout you)
Things could be pretty (talking 'bout me)
Wonderful world (talking 'bout Nixon)
Beautiful people (Harold Wilson)
Wonderful world (power too)
Beautiful people (and the Seagate)
Wonderful world (help a little but, help now)
Beautiful people (do what you can)
Wonderful world (help a little but, help yeah)
