Lyrics:

It's a wonderful life
this life I'm livin'
What a wonderful life, living a life of ease, oh-ho-oh
Well, I've got no job to worry me
No big bad boss to hurry me
It's a wonderful life life's good to me

It's a wonderful road this road I'm travelin'
It's a wonderful road headin' beyond the hills, oh-ho-oh
Oh it may go straight or it may detour
But one thing that I know for sure
It's a wonderful life, life's good to me

1. I don't know where I'm goin' don't care where I'm goin'
Like the four winds are blowin' I go on
Laughin' the day away

Lovin' the night away
Till the moon is gone


2. What a wonderful life this life I'm livin'
What a wonderful life, livin' the life I love, oh yeah
Well I've got neighbors, I've got friends
Just about anywhere the rainbow ends
It's a wonderful life, life's good to me

1.2. (repeat)
What a wonderful life, life's good to me, yeah
Crazy life, life's good to me
Oh what a life
