"Pick Yourself Up" as written by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields....
Please teacher, teach me something
Nice teacher, teach me something
I'm as awkward as a camel, that's not the worst
My two feet haven't met yet
But I'll be teacher's pet yet
'Cause I'm gonna learn to dance or burst

Nothing's impossible I have found
For when my chin is on the ground
I pick myself up
Dust myself off
Start all over again

Don't lose your confidence if you slip
Be grateful for a pleasant trip
And pick yourself up
Dust yourself off
Start all over again

Work like a soul inspired
Till the battle of the day is won
You may be sick and tired
But you'll be a man, my son!

Will you remember the famous men
Who had to fall to rise again?
So take a deep breath
Pick yourself up
Dust yourself off
Start all over again

I'll get some self assurance
If your endurance is great
I'll learn by easy stages
If you're courageous and wait

To feel the strength I want to
I must hang on to your hand
Maybe by the time I'm fifty
I'll get up and do a nifty

I pick yourself up
Dust yourself off
Start all over again
