I love hearing the Carpenters’ songs, and always have, and this song is a fun cover of, “Top of the World”, by Shonen Knife. It just makes me smile when I hear it.

Such a feeling coming over me
There is wonder in the things I see
Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes
And I won’t be surprised if it’s a dream

Everything I want the world to be
Is coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear, it’s because you are here
You’re the nearest thing to heaven that I’ve seen

On the top of the world looking down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
Your love put me on the top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
Telling me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
There’s a pleasant sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope I’ll find
Tomorrow will be the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I’ve found ever since you’ve been around
Your love put me on the top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world
Top of the world

Top of the world
Such a feeling coming over me now
Everything I want the world to be now
On top on top on top of the world
I’m on the top now I’m on the top
Now
Top of the world
