Wonderful World

Don't know much about history,
Don't know much biology.
Don't know much about a science book,
Don't know much about the French I took.
But I do know that I love you,
And I know that if you love me too,
What a wonderful world this would be.

Don't know much about geography,
Don't know much trigonometry.
Don't know much about algebra,
Don't know what a slide rule is for.
But I know that one and one is two,
And if this one could be with you,
What a wonderful world this would be.


I don't claim to be an 'A' student,
But I'm tryin' to be.
For maybe by being an 'A' student, baby,
I can win your love for me.


Don't know much about history,
Don't know much biology.
Don't know much about a science book,
Don't know much about the french I took.
But I do know that I love you,
And I know that if you love me, too,
What a wonderful world this would be.


History
Biology
Science book
French I took.
But I do know that I love you,
And I know that if you love me, too,
What a wonderful world this would be.

Sam Cooke.

C'est bien joli Feb 10, 2005

Euh... il y a eu les années 80 depuis... tu sais bien, le fric c'est chic et tout le tralala...

Qu'est-ce qu'il va gagner si c'est un ignare ?

an excellent song Feb 10, 2005

Hi,

It's also featured in the movie Witness from about 20 years ago starring Harrison Ford and Kelli McGillis.

Best wishes,
Bruce

I really like that song too ... Feb 10, 2005

It featured in a UK Levi's commercial, which is how I know it, despite it being way before my time:-)

Take care!

Sarah

the part where they raise the barn, in Witness.(I'm a country boy now)
I believe that Bruce must have been hiding in the barn...

pour ma part Feb 10, 2005

C'est la version de Simon and Garfunkel qui me l'a fait connaître
Grand sentimental et vieux hippie que je suis, entièrement d'accord!
Priorité majeure
de tout animal,
incontournable,
une de trois.
On réussit quand même à la contourner.
Amazing!
