    Don't you see, Bloom, darling Bloom?
    Glorious Bloom, it's so simple
    Step one, we find the worst play ever written
    Step two, we hire the worst director in town
    Step three, I raise two million dollars

    Two? Yes, one for me, one for you
    There's a lot of little old ladies out there
    Step four, we hire the worst actors in New York
    And open on Broadway and before you can say, "Step five"
    We close on Broadway, take our two million and go to Rio

    Rio? Nah, that'd never work, oh, ye of little faith
    What did Lewis say to Clark when everything looked bleak?
    What did Sir Edmund say to Tenzing
    As they struggled toward Everest's peak?

    What did Washington say to his troops
    As they crossed the Delaware?
    I'm sure you're well aware, what'd they say?

    We can do it, we can do it
    We can do it, me and you
    We can do it, we can do it
    We can make our dreams come true

    Everything you've ever wanted
    Is just waiting to be had
    Beautiful girls, wearing nothing but pearls
    Caressing you, undressing you and driving you mad

    We can do it, we can do it
    This is not the time to shirk
    We can do it, you won't rue it
    Say goodbye to petty clerk

    Hi, Producer, yes, Producer
    I mean you, sir, go beserk
    We can do it, we can do it
    And I know it's gonna work

    Whatta ye say, Bloom? What do I say?
    Finally a chance to be a Broadway producer
    What do I say?

    Finally a chance to make my dreams come true, sir
    What do I say, what do I say?
    Here's what I say to you, sir

    I can't do it, I can't do it
    I can't do it, that's not me
    I'm a loser, I'm a coward
    I'm a chicken, don't you see?

    When it comes to wooing women
    There's a few things that I lack
    Beautiful girls, wearing nothing but pearls
    Cashing me, embracing me, I'd have an attack

    Why, you miserable, cowardly, wretched little caterpillar
    Don't you ever want to become a butterfly?
    Don't you want to spread your wings
    And flap your way to glory?

    We can do it, we can do it
    We can grab that holy grail
    We can do it, we can do it
    Drink Champagne, not ginger ale
    Come on, Leo, can't you see oh

    Mr. Bialystock, please stop the song
    You've got me wrong, I'll say, "So long"
    I'm not as strong a person as you think
    Mr. Bialystock, just take a look
    I'm not a crook, I'm just a shnook
    The bottom line is that I stink, I can't do it

    You see Rio, I see jail
    We can do it, I can't do it, we can do it
    I cannot, cannot, cannot, cannot do it
    'Cause I know it's gonna fail, we can do it
    I know it cannot fail
    (It's gonna fail)
