Pick Yourself Up

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

Don't lose your confidence if you slip
Be grateful for a pleasant
And pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again

Work like a soul inspired til the battle of the day is won
You may be sick and tired, but you'll be a man, my son

Don't you remember the famous men
Who had to fall and rise again
They picked themselves up, dust themselves off and started all over again

CHORUS: Work like a soul inspired 'til the battle of the day is won
You may be sick and tired, but you'll be a man, my son.

Don't you remember the famous men who had to fall to rise again
They picked themselves up, dusted themselves off, and started all over again.

Start all over again!





songwriter: Jerome Kern in 1936, lyrics by Dorothy
Fields

performed by: Diana Krall

date released: 1936 for the film Swing Time
starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Re-
released by many, but notably by Diana Krall in
1999.

On January 20, 2009, the 44th President of the
United States, Barack Obama, in his inauguration
speech said: "Starting today, we must pick
ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin the work
of remaking America." I wonder if he [Obama] paid
for copyright fees to the songwriter's estate.
