It's A Small World On Earth Day

It's A Small World On Earth Day


50 years ago today "It's A Small World" opened at the 1964 New York Worlds Fair and then moved here to Disneyland in Orange County California in 1966. The song was written by Richard & Robert Sherman in the wake of the Cuban Missile Crisis and it's metaphysical message has been earworming riders ever since. So remember on this Earth Day, with the shrinking of the world with our hyper connectivity,

"It's A Small World After All."

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears.
It's a world of hopes and a world of fears.
There's so much that we share,
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all.

It's a small world after all.
It's a small world after all.
It's a small world after all.
It's a small, small world.

There is just one moon and one golden sun.
And a smile means friendship to everyone.
Though the mountains divide,
And the oceans are wide
It's a small world after all.

It's a small world after all.
It's a small world after all.
It's a small world after all.
It's a small, small world.

There is so much that we share, it is time we are aware, "It's A Small World After All."
And So It Is!
