Pete Sheppibone – Yes We Can lyrics

Yes we can!

We know the challenges that tomorrow will bring
Are the greatest of our lifetime.
But, America I
Have never been more hopeful
Than I am tonight
That we will get there.
I promise you.
Out of many, we are one.
That while we breathe, we hope.
And, where we are met with cynicism and doubt,
And those who tell us that we can't,
We will respond with that timeless creed
That sums of the spirit of the people.

Yes we can!

Yes we can!

Ye ye ye ye yes we can!

Today I say to you - that
The challenges we face are real.

They are serious and they are many.
But, know this America.
They will be met!
Starting today,
We must pick ourselves up,
Dust ourselves off,
And begin the work of remaking America.

Yes we can!

Ye ye ye ye yes we can (Can can can can)!
