  • I used to wake up every morning
    Feeling down, down, down
    And my heart was filled with sadness
    Like a clown, clown, clown

    I didn't care for anybody
    I was cool, oh, so cool
    I'd been hiding out from true love
    Like a fool, fool, fool

    Hello, world, today I feel like someone
    Hello, world, today I sing a glad song
    Hello, world, now I know
    What love can do for me

    Hello, world, hello, hello
    Hello, world, hello, hello

    I used to think that life was dull
    Though I was young, young, young
    And that all the songs worth singing
    Had been sung, sung, sung

    When I woke up early morning
    Feeling blue, oh, so blue
    And opened back the curtains
    And the sun shone through

    Hello, world, today I feel like someone
    Hello, world, today I sing a glad song
    Hello, world, now I know
    What love can do for me

    Hello, world, hello, hello
    Hello, world, hello, hello Writer/s: TONY HAZZARD
