View Lyrics

The second I saw it, I knew.
I said to myself: “Aha!”
I could tell at a glance
That it wasn’t by chance
That we happened to be where we are.

From the moment I woke with the lark,
We were both of us singing away,
And the sky was so blue
I instinctively knew
We were in for a wonderful day.

As I told you before
When I saw what I saw,
I was terribly tempted to say:

On a wonderful day like today,
I defy any cloud to appear in the sky,
Dare any raindrop to plop in my eye
On a wonderful day like today.

On a wonderful morning like this
When the sun is as big as a yellow balloon;
Even the sparrows are signing in tune
On a wonderful morning like this.

On a morning like this I could kiss ev’rybody,
I’m so full of love and good will.
Let me say furthermore, I’d adore ev’rybody
To come and dine — the pleasure’s mine —
And I will play the bill!

May I take this occasion to say
That the whole human race
Should go down on its knees,
Show that we’re grateful
For mornings like these
For the world’s in a wonderful way
On a wonderful day like today.

On a wonderful day like today
When the sky is as grey as an elephant’s’s nose,
Half of me’s freezing – the other half’s froze!
On a wonderful day like today – I’m only joking!

May I take this occasion to pray
For a little less cold and a little more heat.
Even the sparrows are stamping their feet;
If they spoke I know just what they’d say!
On a wonderful day like today.

On a wonderful day …
Yes, Sir, what did you say?
A fantabulous day!
Don’t get carried away.
On a wonderful day like today!
