Feeling Good Lyrics

Artist: Nina Simone

Birds flyin' high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel
Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me
yeah, its a new dawn its a new day its a new life for me ooooooooh

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River runnin' free you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree you know how I feel
Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me
And I'm feelin good

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what i mean dont you know
Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean
Sleepin' peace when day is done that's what I mean
And this old world is a new world and a bold world for me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the crime you know how I feel
Your freedom is mine, and I know how I feel
Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me

There's just something magically uplifting about the brass crescendo on the second verse.
by SANDRA on 6/12/2008 2:03pm
this song stirs me... i wish though to know the last part of the song... that where the power comes in... does anyone know?
by Magdalena on 6/30/2008 12:00pm
I need to know who wrote this song originally. Anybody knows?
by Dou on 6/30/2008 6:44pm
the song was originally written for a musical. just google the the title of the song and wikipedia should have the info on who wrote it and the name of the film
by Dou on 6/30/2008 6:48pm
personally i think the nina simone version is the best but anythings better than that pussycat dolls abomination
by Nyx on 7/1/2008 3:10pm
in the last verse the lyrics are scent of the pine not scent of the crime
by L. on 7/18/2008 2:19am
Personally, I love Muse's version, but this Nina Simone version is pretty good too.

I remember Traffic (with Steve Winwood on vocals) did a cover of this on their album "Last Exit" around 1970 - about 15 mins of jazz organ improv - quite different from Nina's, but still excellent.

Thanks for putting these lyrics together.
However, just a small correction. It should read "scent of the PINE" not "scent of the CRIME"

by Jimmy B. on 12/25/2009 11:57pm
Scent of the crime… are you serious? It's "scent of the pine(s)". Please change immediately!
by meredith on 12/31/2009 10:34pm
Please note written by Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley for the GREAt musical Roar of the Greasepaint Smell of the Crowd and its broadway rendition by Gilbert Price was incomparable.
by Jojo on 1/10/2010 4:31pm
Small correction. It's "sleep in peace", not "sleepin' peace".
by Mojel on 2/16/2010 1:14am
The Muse vers is awsome aswell, i love the original, but as a Muse fan that vers tops it!
by Angel of America on 2/23/2010 3:40pm
I lorvvvv this song its soooooo good !!!!! Mojel i havn't heard the muse version yet is it good ? i love muse too !! they rock !!!!!!!!!!!! <3 :)
by Realist on 3/7/2010 10:46am
This song is actually pretty gay, and you're somewhat all fags for enjoying it.
by eloïse on 3/17/2010 5:10am
Beautifull, wonderfull song. I love it so mucch
by Genevieve on 3/24/2010 8:24pm
As for the profoundly ignorant, homophobic comment by 'Realist' (3/7/2010) , perhaps you should consider changing your name to 'Real Prick' ! Should not the moderators of this site be reporting such comments that are akin to inciting homophobia ??
by Sandi on 4/2/2010 10:20am
Thank you Nina Simone! R.I.P
by jacob on 4/13/2010 8:53pm
by Britt on 4/25/2010 9:20pm
To lol and Realist, why are you reading the lyrics of a song that you think is "gay" and actually bothering to comment on it if you don't like it? Clearly you're trying to stay in the closet and failing sad.

Both this version and the Muse version are fantastic, but it's Nina and Muse I'm talking about here so that's to be expected really. I'm actually writing a paper about this song for a class right now...which is why I googled the yeah.
by Jesus of Nazarath on 10/1/2010 6:04pm
This makes me want to slap a walrus and dance screaming around my back yard totally naked.
by Haha on 11/17/2010 7:02pm
I think lol is gay
by Fay Gunn on 12/26/2010 3:59pm
This song "rocks me steady"...
by tricky on 12/27/2010 9:00am

by VeeJayNOLA on 4/12/2011 4:43pm
This is "the" song. I heard it on The Aprilism blog and had to look up the lyrics. I'm going to download the song and play it for the "gloomy" few at work.
by Vardya on 5/7/2011 3:50am
The lyrics is wrong. and spoiling the meaning of the song.
the correct last rimes are:
Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel
by pasoble on 8/3/2011 6:40am
this is so cool
by billy brown on 10/4/2011 3:53am
ohh my god how inspiring it really gets me going :')
by David G on 10/16/2011 9:46am
A few posters have said the line "scent of the crime" should be "scent of the pine". On my version by Nina Simone, she definitely says "scent of the crime" ...... Which I prefer.
by Super amazin girl on 12/14/2011 6:21pm
I watched the video of ronan parke singing this at the britans got talent thingy on you tube and it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! U MUUUUUUUUUUST WATCH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by ED on 12/20/2011 6:13pm
Such a great song and cover by a few, but if you haven't listen to the Michael Buble versions you are missing a real treat.
by Deshawn Fowler on 1/7/2012 9:24am
I've waited all my life for this moment to arrive and finally, I believe in overcoming my obstacle Thank you God I am Feeling Good
by Andrew on 1/17/2012 4:35am
After watching "The Secret" this song became my favorite ;)
by ? on 2/13/2012 9:17am
Realist are you mental - its about the black freedom movement - do you not know your history!

by Jean Walker on 4/10/2012 10:15am
There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about the words of this song. Why is that? And what is the problem with knowing exactly what the words are saying by researching what the original writer wrote.
by Darrell Sherman on 4/10/2012 7:03pm
Ronan Parke signing on Britian got talent was the single best moment of my life. I wish him everything in the world the world has to offer. Thanx Ronan. You are the greatest there ever was or will be.

by rosey on 1/2/2013 8:52pm
this is all wrong and there much more too the song " scent if the
crime" is really "scent of the pine" please don't get people miss up
by J on 1/11/2013 4:28pm
I love it
by Maaui on 1/26/2013 11:19pm
It should be, "scene of a crime, you know how I feel", that makes way more sence.
by milly on 10/18/2013 12:21pm
it helped me learn the song
by solly on 1/22/2014 12:54pm
this song is great
by Clara on 4/13/2018 3:39pm
Great song, covers by Muse and Micheal Bauble are also great. Just so you know, in the last verse, it is "sweet sent of PINE you know how I feel," and not "sweet sent of crime"(:
