    what do you do for living?
    I am a teacher
    I teach

    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Way up high
    And the dreams that you dreamed of
    Once in a lullaby
    Somewhere over the rainbow
    Blue birds fly
    And the dreams that you dreamed of
    Dreams really do come true ooh oh
    Someday I’ll wish upon a star
    Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
    Where trouble melts like lemon drops
    High above the chimney top
    That’s where you’ll find me
    Oh, somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
    And the dream that you dare to,
    Oh why, oh why can’t I?
    Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
    I’ll watch them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world
    Well I see skies of blue
    And I see clouds of white
    And the brightness of day
    I like the dark
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world
    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people passing by
    I see friends shaking hands
    Singing, "How do you do?"
    They’re really singing, "I, I love you."
    I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
    They’ll learn much more than we’ll know
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world world
    Someday I’ll wish upon a star
    Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
    Where trouble melts like lemon drops
    High above the chimney top
    That’s where you’ll find me
    Oh, somewhere over the rainbow way up high
    And the dream that you dare to, why oh, why can’t I?

    Perfect Day
    Lou Reed
    Just a perfect day
    Drink Sangria in the park
    And then later
    When it gets dark, we go home
    Just a perfect day
    Feed animals in the zoo
    Then later
    A movie, too, and then home
    Oh, it’s such a perfect day
    I’m glad I spent it with you
    Oh, such a perfect day
    You just keep me hanging on
    You just keep me hanging on
    Just a perfect day
    Problems all left alone
    Weekenders on our own
    It’s such fun
    Just a perfect day
    You made me forget myself
    I thought I was
    Someone else, someone good
    Oh, it’s such a perfect day
    I’m glad I spent it with you
    Oh, such a perfect day
    You just keep me hanging on
    You just keep me hanging on
    You’re going to reap just what you sow
    You’re going to reap just what you sow
    You’re going to reap just what you sow
    You’re going to reap just what you sow
