Pick Yourself Up (1936)
(m) Jerome Kern (w) Dorothy Fields (I) Film: Swing Time by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers
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 trip,
And pick yourself up, dust yourself off, start all over again.
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?First ending:
So pick yourself up, dust yourself off, start all over again.
Second ending: So take a deep breath, [wait]
Pick yourself up, [wait] Dust yourself off, [wait]
Start all over again.
