Yes We Can

Available on: The Distance- iTunes Bonus Track


Now is the time for all good men to get together with one another
We got to iron out our problems and iron out our quarrels and try
to live as brothers
And, try to find piece within without stepping on one another
And, do respect the women of the world, just remember we all have mothers

We gotta make this land a better land than the world in which we live
We gotta help each man be a better man with the kindness that we give
I know we can make it, (I know that we can)
I know darn well we can work it out
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can’t we
If we wanna yes we can can
I know we can make it work
I know we can make it if we try
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can (Great Gosh Almighty!)
Yes we can, I know we can can

We gotta take care of the children, the little children of the world
Cuz’ they’re our strongest hope for the future, the little bitty boys and
girls
We gotta make this land a better land than the world in which we live
We gotta help each man be a better man with the kindness that we give
I know we can make it (I know that we can)
I know darn well we can work it out
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can’t we
If we wanna yes we can can
I know we can make it work
I know we can make it if we try
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can’t we, if we want to get together we can work it
out
Get together, get together now Get together, get together now

Now is the time for all good men to get together with one another
We got to iron out our problems and iron out our quarrels and try to
live as brothers
I know we can make it, (I know that we can)
I know darn well we can work it out
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can’t we
If we wanna yes we can can
I know we can make it work
I know we can make it if we try
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can (Great Gosh Almighty!)
Yes we can, I know we can can

Now’ll be time for the people come together as an equal, take the burden
off your brother, try to love one another
Yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can’t we, if we wanna, yes we can can
Try a little harder, raise the children like we oughtta, that’s what it’s all
about, you knooow we can work it out
Yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can’t we, if we want to get together we can work it out
(Might be hard to let the people have a say, but, no matter how hard,
where there’s a will there’s a way-yay)
Why can’t we, if we wanna, yes we can can

So many needy, so many poor, but, love & understanding is the key to the door
We can work it out, yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can’t we, if we want to get together we can work it out
