🎶 What a Wonderful World! 🎶

Despite having my Rock Running tracks on my phone this morning, I seemed to have the great Satchmo (Louis Armstrong) with me on my run as this was singing round my head to the tune of "Wonderful World".

I’ve seen trees of green,

And buddleia too.

The clouds they are grey,

The sun’s trying to shine through,

And I think to myself,

What a wonderful world.


The morning’s fine,

The air is quite chill.

But running along

Makes me a warm Gill.

And I think to myself,

What a wonderful run.


I pass the bridge,

The sewage works too.

The countryside’s great

But the air smells of poo.

But I think to myself,

What a wonderful world,

Yes I think to myself, what a wonderful run.


The sun is coming out now,

So pretty in the sky,

It’s shining on the faces

Of other joggers passing by.

There are pairs running on

And solo runners too,

I manage to say, “Good morning to you.”


I see clouds of white

And skies of blue

The sun is so bright

It sparkles on dew,

And I think to myself

What a wonderful world.

Yes I think to myself, what a wonderful run.
