History of the Quote
Spoken Intro to 1970s “What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong.

‘Some of you young folks been saying to me, “Hey Pops, what you mean ‘What a wonderful world’? How about all them wars all over the place? You call them wonderful? And how about hunger and pollution? That aint so wonderful either.” Well how about listening to old Pops for a minute. Seems to me, it aint the world that’s so bad but what we’re doin’ to it. And all I’m saying is, see, what a wonderful world it would be if only we’d give it a chance. Love baby, love. That’s the secret, yeah. If lots more of us loved each other, we’d solve lots more problems. And then this world would be a gasser. That’s wha’ ol’ Pops keeps saying.’

I’ve known and loved this song my whole life but had never heard the spoken intro from the 1970s version until recently and it just made me love it even more. The world needs more Louis Armstrongs.
