lovely day lyrics – gil scott-heron

smile

it’s on a clear spring mornin’
there’s not a cloud in the sky
and it’s got me out here walkin’ and wavin’ to the ladies
as they stroll by
and i ain’t forgot for a moment all the things i need to do
but when i see that old sun shinin’, it make me feel like i can make it, too

yes, and all i really wanna say
is that the problems come and go,
but the sunshine seems to stay

and just look around
i think we’ve found
a lovely day

the flowers woke up bloomin’
and put on a color show just for me
the shadows dark and gloomy
i told them all to keep the h*ll away from me
because i don’t feel like believin’ everything i do gon’ turn out wrong
when vibrations i’m receiving say
“hold on, brother, just you be strong”

yes and all i really wanna say
is that the problems come and go,
but the sunshine seems to stay
hey

just look around
i think we’ve found
a lovely day

sometimes it rains
and i feel kinda strange
because it seems like my problems begin
without the sunshine on which i depend
and all that make me feel like i need to hear the sun say

hey, just look around
i think we’ve found
a lovely day
i think we’ve found a lovely day
i think we’ve found a lovely, lovely
don’t it feel like a lovely day
