They say the world has seven wonders,
but I can’t agree,
‘Cause I would say that’s way under
what the truth must be.
Wonders come in endless numbers,
All you have to do, is sharpen up your view,
I feel so enchanted when I don’t
take things for granted!

I bit into an apple like I’d done a thousand times,
But I looked at this apple and a thought
came to my mind,
How it came from a tree that grew from the land,
A tree that was a tiny seed, that’s how it began.

I thought of how this tiny seed became a tree so tall,
How it was nourished by the rain that
somehow knew to fall,
Apple grew on a branch high up off the ground,
And when it knew it was ripe,
it came tumbling down.

Hey look around, hey look around,
The wonders of the world are everywhere, everywhere!
Hey look around, hey look around,
With wonder in your mind
You’ll be aware of wonders everywhere!

A billion snowflakes falling down
And no two are the same,
A firefly lights up in the sky just like a little flame,
Giant stars look so small to the human eye,
And looking through a microscope
a world goes whizzing by.

The perfect time for flying South is chosen by a bird,
A baby opens up her mouth and out
comes her first word,
Colors change in the leaves, dazzling the eyes,
Caterpillars somehow changing into butterflies.


I looked into the mirror like I’d done
a thousand times,
I moved a little nearer and a thought
came to my mind,
Could it be, what I see is a wonder too?
Then I started thinking and I knew it was true.

What a great invention are these eyes
through which I see,
My ears and nose I’ll mention,
they amaze me equally,
My stomach knows what to do with the food I eat,
My heart it is a wonder too, doesn’t miss a beat.
I can think, I can feel, and I do each day,
I can speak, but times like this all that I can say is

CHORUS, then Hey look around! (5 times)
