It is so beautiful
O it is beautiful
A beautiful day
When you can walk outdoors without a coat

It is so beautiful
O it is beautiful
That note you wrote
That says, I love you, quote unquote
It made me fly, it made me float

On the street the smell of fresh dirt
The grass now starts to smell like grass
The laundry with the piles of clean shirts
And the blue sky reflected in the window glass
The door is open to the pizza place
Smell of coffee from the coffee shop
The sun shines in every face
The delivery boy, cabdriver, newsstand guy, the corner cop

This was the winter we didn't die
Weren't hit by a truck, house didn't burn down
And now the sun is in the sky
Waking up the tulips in this part of town

It is so beautiful
O it is beautiful
A beautiful day
When I can sit outside and look at you

You are beautiful
O beautiful
Shakespeare knew that spring is racing through
And summer too
The dappled day of flower and grass and leaf
Is beautiful and alas so brief
