From the recording On My Own
This is a great song from 70 Girls 70 that I have always loved and everyone seems to agree. The show didn't do so well, but this song is a keeper. I've been singing it in my show since the very first year.
Yes. Say yes.
Life keeps happening ev’ry day. Say Yes.
When opportunity comes your way,
You can’t start wondering what to say
You’ll never win if you never play. Say Yes.
There’s mink and marigold right outside
Warm white Cadillacs you can ride
Nothing’s gained if there’s nothin tried
Don’t say “Why.” Say “Why not.”
What lies beyond what is, is not.
So what? Say Yes.
Yes I can. Yes, I will.
Yes, I’ll take a sip. Yes, I’ll touch.
Yes, of course. Yes, how nice.
Yes, I’d happily thank you very much
Yes. Oh Yes.
There’s lots of chaff, there’s lots of wheat
You might get mugged as you walk the street
But on the other hand you might greet
That handsome stranger you’ve longed to meet
Yes I’ll look, Yes I’ll walk
Yes I’d love to do such and such
Yes I’ll try, Yes I’ll dare, Yes I’ll fly
Yes I’ll share, And Yes I am, And Yes I’ll be
And Yes I’ll go
