(jerome kern, dorothy fields)


Pick yourself up...
Take a deep breath...
Dust yourself off
And start all over again.


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


Work like a soul inspired
Until 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
And start all over again.


~interlude~


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
And start all over again.
