Verse:
This is just the kind of day that you dream about,
When you open up your mouth a song pops out.
 
Chorus:
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah,  Zip-a-dee-ay,
My, oh my, what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine, headin' my way,
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah,  Zip-a-dee-ay,
Mister Bluebird on my shoulder,
It's the truth, it's actch'll,  Ev'ry thing is satisfactch'll.
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah,  Zip-a-dee-ay!
wonderful feeling,  wonderful day.
