Lyrics

SOLO:
Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by you know how I feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good

SOPRANO 1’s:
Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree you know how I feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good

SOLOS:
Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean
Butterflies all havin’ fun you know what I mean
ALL:
Sleep in peace when day is done that’s what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world for me

SOPRANO 1’s:
Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
ALL:
Freedom is mine
And I know how I feel
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good
