Gonna Be a Bright, Bright Doha Day

Temperatures in Doha may reach 119F today, this first Friday of Ramadan. Ouch!   As a special (inside day) treat, I share (with permission) the most wonderful Esther Popp Myers singing "I Can See Clearly Now" (popularly known as "Bright Doha Day"), words by Melissa, music by Esther:

(forgive the videographer, just enjoy the music!)

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW
(Bright Doha Day)

I can see clearly now the (dust) is gone
I can see construction that's in my way
Gone are the dust storms that made me blind...

It's gonna be a bright, bright Doha day.
It's gonna be a bright, bright Doha day.

I think I can make it now the maid is here
All of the piles of laundry have disappeared
Ordered that shwarma I've been longing for...

It's gonna be a bright, bright Doha day.
It's gonna be a bright, bright Doha day.

Look all around there's nothing but white thobes!
Look straight ahead ... nothing but black robes!

Gettin' my business done... In sha allah
Just made a call, Q-Tel is on their way
Waited at Carrefour till the cows came home...

It's gonna be a bright, bright Doha day.
It's gonna be a bright, bright Doha day.
