Will I Am Yes We Can Lyrics



Yes We Can Lyrics

Will I Am

  • It was a creed written into the founding documents
  • That declared the destiny of a nation, yes we can
  • It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists
  • As they blazed a trail toward freedom, yes we can
  • It was sung by immigrants as they struck out
  • From distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward
  • Against an unforgiving wilderness, yes we can
  • It was the call of workers who organized
  • Women who reached for the ballots
  • A President who chose the moon as our new frontier
  • And a King who took us to the mountaintop
  • And pointed the way to the Promised Land
  • Yes we can to justice and equality
  • Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity
  • Yes we can heal this nation
  • Yes we can repair this world
  • Yes we can
  • We know the battle ahead will be long
  • But always remember that no matter
  • What obstacles stand in our way
  • Nothing can stand in the way of the power
  • Of millions of voices calling for change
  • (We want change)
  • We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics
  • They will only grow louder and more dissonant
  • We've been asked to pause for a reality check
  • We've been warned against offering
  • The people of this nation false hope
  • But in the unlikely story that is America
  • There has never been anything false about hope
  • Now the hopes of the little girl who goes
  • To a crumbling school in Dillon are the same
  • As the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA
  • We will remember that there is something happening in America
  • That we are not as divided as our politics suggests
  • That we are one people, we are one nation
  • And together, we will begin the next great chapter
  • In the American story with three words that will ring
  • From coast to coast, from sea to shining sea, yes we can
