TOK SONG – What a Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong

Hey guys 🙂

Mr Saha asked us to choose a song which adressed knowledge issues and for quite some time I found it difficult to think of one. What would you count as a knowledge issue. I found myself trying to find specific words in lyrics. but then when I didn’t think about it , during a TOK lesson we were talking about something completely different and it randomly popped into my head -the amazing Louis Armstrong talks of all the things he sees in the world. He concentrates on the the sense of sight.

Its funny how you can struggle over something for ages and then when you stop thinking about it it becomes clearer. This has happened to me on many occasions. When I used to do Physics my teacher used to say just don’t overthink it you’ll confuse yourself once you think you’ve got it move on or you’ll find you don’t get it. Also in Maths when I am doing a really hard problem , and I then stop and start from the beginning sometimes I find myself doing the same mistake. My teacher said  completely forget about it and come back to it in a day and see if I can do it again.

See LYRICS BELOW

I see trees of green…….. red roses too
I see em bloom….. for me and for you
And I think to myself…. what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue….. clouds of white
Bright blessed days….dark sacred nights
And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world.

The colors of a rainbow…..so pretty ..in the sky
Are also on the faces…..of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands…..sayin.. how do you do
They’re really sayin……i love you.

I hear babies cry…… I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more…..than I’ll never know
And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world

(instrumental break)

The colors of a rainbow…..so pretty ..in the sky
Are there on the faces…..of people ..going by
I see friends shaking hands…..sayin.. how do you do
They’re really sayin…*spoken*(I ….love….you).

I hear babies cry…… I watch them grow
*spoken*(you know their gonna learn
A whole lot more than I’ll never know)
And I think to myself …..what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself …….what a wonderful world

*Laters
