"Yes We Can Can" as written by and Allen Toussaint....
Now the time for all good men to get together with one another
We got to iron out our problems and iron out our quarrels
Try to live as brothers
Try to find peace within without steppin' on one another
And do respect the women of the world
Remember you've all had mothers
We've gotta make this land a better land in the world in which we
live
We gotta help each man be a better man with the kindness that we
give

[Chorus]
I know we can make it
I know that we can
I know darn well we can work it out
Yes we can, you know we can can
I know we can can
Why can't we, if we want to, yes we can can
I know we can make it work
I know we can make it if we try, 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 all the children
Little children of the world
'Cause they're our strongest hope for the future
All the little bitty boys and girls
We've gotta make this land a better land in the world in which we
live
We gotta help each man be a better man with the kindness that we
give

[Chorus: x2]

Yes we can, you know we can can
I know we can can
Why can't we, if we want to, yes we can can

Yeah, we can make it, y'all
Yeah, we can make it, y'all
Oh, yeah, if we only try
Yeah, we can make it, y'all
Sometimes it's hard
Sometimes it's hard
Sometimes it's hard
Oh, we can make it, y'all, uh, huh

I know we can make it
I know that we can
I know darn well we can work it out
We can work it out, yes we can can, yes we can can
Why can't we, if we want to get together
We can work it out

I know we can make it
I know that we can
I know darn well we can work it out
We can work it out, yes we can can, yes we can can
Why can't we, if we want to get together
We can work it out
