Today I'm gonna try and change the world


Becca and I have a fun game.  We roll down the windows in all kinds of weather (read: once when it was raining) and we stick our arms out and wave at other drivers, joggers, dog walkers, people hanging outside the Coconut Grove, or anyone we see.  Why do we do this?  We do this because it makes people smile.  Even when they look at us like we are crazy, they usually smile.  Many people wave.  Occasionally, some people even roll down their windows and start waving at other people to make them smile as well.  It's all for the smile baby!

Today I'm gonna try and change the world
Gonna take it one day at a time
I've made my resolution
I've opened up my eyes
Today I'm gonna try and change the world

I'm gonna say hello to my neighbor
Greet him with a smile
Shake the hand of a stranger
Sit and talk to him for a while
Tell someone I love them
From the bottom of my heart
Today I'm gonna try to change the world
Gonna make sure my children
Know right from wrong
Never turn my back
On those who need someone
Always gonna try to see myself
Through another's eyes
Today I'm gonna try to change the world

Today I'm gonna try and change the world
Today I'm gonna try and change the world
Not for me, but for those I'll leave behind
I've made my resolution
Change it one day at time
Today I'm gonna try and change the world
