Allen Toussaint – Yes We Can Can lyrics

Now is the time

Now is the time for all good men
To get together with one another
Iron out our problems
And iron out our quarrels
And try to live as brothers

And try to find a piece within
Without stepping on one another
And do respect the women of the world
Just remember you all have mothers

Make this land a better land
Than the world in which we live
And help each man be a better man
With the kindness that you give

And 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 get yes we can can

I know we can make it a world
I know that we can
I know we can make it if we try
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can, great, gosh-a-mighty
Yes we can, I know we can can

Take care of the children
The children of the world
They're our strongest hope for the future
The little bitty boys and girls

And make this land a better land
Than the world in which we live
And help each man be a better man
With the kindness that you give

And 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 get yes we can can

I know we can make it a world
I know that we can
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

Take care of the children
The children of the world
They're our strongest hope for the future
The little bitty boys and girls

Make this land a better land
Than the world in which we live
And help each man be a better man
With the kindness that you give

And 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 get yes we can can

I know we can make it a world
I know that we can
I know we can make it if we try
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can, great, gosh-a-mighty
Yes we can, I know we can can

Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can't we?
If we wanna get yes we can can
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can, great, got your money
Yes we can, I know we can can

Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can't we?
If we wanna get yes we can can
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can, great, gosh-a-mighty
Yes we can, I know we can can

Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can't we?
If we wanna get yes we can can
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can, great, gosh-a-mighty
Yes we can, I know we can can

Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can can, why can't we?
If we wanna get yes we can can
Oh yes we can, I know we can can
Yes we can, great, gosh-a-mighty
Yes we can, I know we can can
