What a Beautiful Day
What a Beautiful Day
[Chorus] What a beautiful day, I'm the king of all time, And nothing is impossible, In my all powerful mind. Was on the fifth of November, When time it went back, Some say that that's impossible, But you and I, we never looked back, And wasn't it incredible, So beautiful and above all, Just to see the fuse get lit this time, To light a real bonfire for all time. [Chorus] I was drinking in my nightclub, It felt good to be back, When Hepburn said, "I love you", And Flynn said, "Make mine a double, Jack" Was then we planned the revolution, To make things better for all time, When Guevara said "That's crazy", And ordered up a bottle of wine. [Chorus] [Chorus] In there on the big screen, Every night I've seen, The way all things could be, For me, For me, for me, for me. The news broke after midnight, That we'd pulled the temples down without a sound, But the generals they were hiding, And the ministers, well, they'd all gone to ground, Wealth re-distribution, Became the new solution, So I got a paper bag, But you got the one with all the holes. [Chorus] What a beautiful day, (what a beautiful day) I'm the king of all time, (it's a beautiful day) And nothing is impossible, (it's a beautiful, ) In my all powerful mind. (it's a beautiful day) Oh yeah, Nothing is impossible (it's a beautiful, ) In my all powerful mind. (it's a beautiful day) That's because, Nothing is impossible, In my all powerful mind.
Amid the sound and light, On a table of friends, Everybodys fine, They're all drinking wine, yeah. Was there you fell in love, In a crowded room, Not for the first but for, The thousandth time, yeah. And so you celebrate, You celebrate, You celebrate your love, With a little house, just made for two, With all the lovely things you can buy brand new, You're gonna settle down, just the both of you, You're gonna be a good soul from now on, yeah. And when the sap first rose, Back in the days, You thought you'd play it smart, The trail of broken hearts, yeah. You said they wont find you, They wont find you, They wont find you, Just living in a box for two. But now you celebrate, You celebrate, You celebrate your love, With a little house, just made for two, With all the lovely things you can buy brand new, You're gonna settle down, just the both of you, So when you catch an eye, And your dancing heart starts telling you the lies, You're doing it to survive, What else could hurt so much it makes you cry? Yes you celebrate, You celebrate, You celebrate your love With a little house just made for two, With all the lovely things you can buy brand new, You're gonna settle down, just the both of you, You're gonna be a good soul from now on,
Oh there was once a man who had lost his own smile And he wandered the country mile after mile Never quite knowing what he wanted to find For his heart it lay heavy with the weight of his mind And he looked at the land through the tears in his eyes, For he knew that there were those who would will her to die. And he wept for his mother as he lay at her feet, And he heard a voice singing him softly to sleep, [Chorus] I'll be your queen, I'll be your mother, I'll be your mystical child, Be your best friend, your lover, Your wife for all time. Will there ever be another, in this life of mine, Will there ever be another, like my mystical child. So he climbed a high hill and he looked out to sea, And he heard a voice calling out softly to him, Open your heart boy for it needs to be free, And the next time you’re crying come running to me. [Chorus] So he walked through the valleys the trees and the fields, And he came to a river where she waited for him, And they looked at the water of life flowing by, And he heard a voice saying, 'You’re not alone in the fight', [Chorus]
