Music for Election 2020: Feeling Good by Nina Simone

“I hear America singing.”
Walt Whitman

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze drifting by you know how I feel
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
Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean
Butterflies all havin’ fun, you know what I mean
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

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good
