Oh I feel good. Oh I feel fine.
And if you look in my eyes right now
You'll see that they both shine.
Oh yes, I feel good. Oh can't you see?
I feel good because of all the good things
I see around me.
What makes me feel good is the deep blue sky.
And I love to see a beautiful butterfly.
What makes me feel good is being outside on a
Just smelling all the flowers and having time just to play.
What makes me feel good is the bright sunshine.
And the cool, cool breeze that blows,
It makes me feel so fine.
What makes me feel good
Is a smile that somebody sends to me.
Special moments like that
Make the world a great place to be.
What makes me feel good is when I share.
I want my friends and family to know how much
What makes me feel good is helping someone
along the way.
Being kind to other people makes me happier than
I can say.
