pick yourself up lyrics – nat king cole

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
they picked themselves up
dust themselves off
and start’d 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.
