My father says that children keep growing, Rivers keep flowing too.
My father says he doesn't know why, but somehow or other they do.
....they do ! somehow or other they do !....


100 million miracles ! 100 million miracles are happ'ning ev'ry day !
And those who say they don't agree are those who do not hear and see.
100 million miracles, 100 million miracles are happ'ning ev'ry day !

miracles of changing weather.....
When a dark blue curtain is pinned by the stars, pinned by the stars to the sky,
Ev'ry flower and tree is a treat to see; the air is very clean and dry.
Then a wind comes blowing the pins all away, night is confused and upset !
The sky falls down like a clumsy clown,
The flowers and the trees get wet...very wet !

100 million miracles, 100 million miracles are happ'ning ev'ry day!
And when the wind shall turn his face, the pins are put right back in place!
100 million miracles, 100 million miracles are happ'ning ev'ry day !

In ev'ry single moment so much is going on,
Along the Yangtse Kiang or the Tiber or the Don.
100 million miracles!

A swallow in Tasmania is sitting on her eggs,
And suddenly those eggs have wings and eyes and beaks and legs !
100 million miracles !

A little girl in Chungking, just 30 inches tall,
Decides that she will try to walk and nearly doesn't fall !
100 million miracles! 100 million miracles ! 100 million miracles !
100 million miracles are happ'ning ev'ry day !

My father says the sun will keep rising over the eastern hill.
My father says he doesn't know why, but somehow or other it will....
it will !....somehow or other it will !

Reprise: the miracle of making music........

When an idle poet puts words on a page, writes on a page with his brush,
A musical friend writes the notes to blend, suggested by an idle thrush.
Then a young soprano reads what they wrote....learns every note, every word.
Puts all they wrote in her lovely throat, and suddenly a song is heard !
(very pretty !)

100 million miracles, 100 million miracles,
100 million miracles are happ'ning ev'ry day !!!!!!
