I see trees and green
Red roses too
I see them bloom
For me and you
And I think to myself
... what a wonderful world
 
I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself
... what a wonderful world
 
The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying
... "I love you"
 
I hear babies crying
I watch them grow
They'll learn much more
Than I'll ever know
And I think to myself
... what a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself
... what a wonderful world

Oh yeah...

Veo árboles y verde
Rosas rojas también
Las veo florecer
Para mí y para ti
Y pienso para mí
...qué mundo maravilloso
 
Veo cielos azules
Y nubes blancas
El bendito brillo del día
La sagrada oscuridad de la noche
Y pienso para mí
...qué mundo maravilloso
 
Los colores del arcoiris
Tan bellos en el cielo
Están también en los rostros
De la gente que pasa
Veo amigos estrechar sus manos
Diciendo "¿Cómo estás?
Están diciéndose en realidad
...Te amo
 
Escucho bebés llorar
Los veo crecer
Aprenderán mucho más
De lo que nunca sabré
Y pienso para mí
...qué mundo maravilloso
Sí, pienso para mí
...qué mundo maravilloso

Así es...
