Your lyrics are incomplete! You left off the last line: "Wonderful feelin', Wonderful Day."

I remember this song from when I was little and I taught it to my 4 yr old grandaughter. She loves it and says "This song makes me feel happy!" I wondered if I had the words right and sure enough I did after all these years.

Love You Bussongs.com! Thank You-Thank You All! For all the great info on this song-and the Movie, "Song of the South"! Was trying to order it from Disney-to show it and teach the song to my 3 yr. old grandson-with no luck! Utterly ridiculous-when it's probably one of the all-time most beloved AND memorable of all their films-by everone who was lucky enough to see it as a child-or as an adult! They don't tell you why it's not available from Disney!
