WHY CAN'T YOU? Ray Henderson (m) Lew Brown (l) Buddy De Sylva (l) Al Jolson (l) Al Jolson rec 1929 also- Gracie Fields '29 You may declare Life is unfair, Keeping your share Of happiness. You are to blame, They called your name, You did not claim Your happiness! You say you're through and you sigh, How do you know till you try? Violets from tiny seeds Fight their way up through the weeds; Violets can do it, Why can't you? Little brooklets, breaking free, Wind their way down to the sea; Little brooks can do it, Why can't you? Hopes and dreams are things that life can shatter, Learn to lift your head and say, "It doesn't matter!". Birdies sing in cages too, They know that's the thing to do; Little birds can do it, Why can't you? Violets from tiny seeds Fight their way up through the weeds; Violets can do it, Why can't you? And little brooklets, breaking free, They find their way down to the sea; Little brooks can do it, Why can't you? Hopes and dreams are things that life can shatter, Learn to lift your head and say, "It doesn't matter!". Birdies sing in cages too, They know that's the thing to do; Little birds can do it, Why can't you? (Contributed by Peter Akers - September 2008)
