You Can!

If you have something good to say, say it;
If there’s someone good to praise, praise him;
If there ‘re ideas that are true, say them.
Stand for justice, praise the good,
Praise the beautiful, praise you;
Sing out life that’s joyous, free,
Sing the light of liberty!
Sing of those who’re going on,
Praise the valiant and the strong;
Prove yourself above the cad
Who says only, “Things look bad,”
Praise the singer unaware
That there’s ugliness out there;
Praise the artist for his art,
Lifting beauty from your heart,
Praise the men who say “I am”
And praise life because you can!
