Anything You Can Do Lyrics

Anything you can do I can do better
I can do anything better than you
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!

Anything you can be I can be greater
Sooner or later I'm greater than you
No, you're not
Yes, I am
No, you're not
Yes, I am
No, you're not
Yes, I am, yes I am

I can shoot a partridge with a single cartridge
I can get a sparrow with a bow and arrow
I can live on bread and cheese
And only on that?
Yes
So can a rat

Any note you can reach I can go higher
I can sing anything higher than you
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can

Anything you can buy I can buy cheaper
I can buy anything cheaper than you
Fifty cents
Forty cents
Thirty cents
Twenty cents
No, you can't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!

Anything you can say I can say softer
I can say anything softer than you
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!

I can drink my liquor faster than a flicker
I can do it quicker and get even sicker
I can open any safe
Without being caught?
Sure
That's what I thought (you crook!)

Any note you can hold I can hold longer
I can hold any note longer than you
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!
No, you can't -- Yes, you can!

Anything you can wear I can wear better
In what you wear I'd look better than you
In my coat
In your vest
In my shoes
In your hat
No, you can't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!

Anything you can say I can say faster
I can say anything faster than you
Noyoucan't
YesIcan
Noyoucan't
YesIcan
Noyoucan't
YesIcan
Noyoucan't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!

I can jump a hurdle
I can wear a girdle
I can knit a sweater
I can fill it better
I can do most anything
Can you bake a pie?
No
Neither can I

Anything you can sing I can sing sweeter
I can sing anything sweeter than you
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Oh, yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't
Yes, I can
No, you can't, can't, can't
Yes, I can, can, can, can
No, you can't
Yes, I can

I'm superior, you're inferior
I'm the big attraction, you're the small
I'm the major one, you're the minor one
I can beat you shootin', that's not all

Anything you can sing, I can sing louder
I can sing anything louder than you
No you can't
Yes I can
No you can't
Yes I can
No you can't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!

Anything you can buy, I can buy cheaper
I can buy anything cheaper than you
Fifty cents
Forty cents
Thirty cents
Twenty cents
No you can't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!

I could be a racer, quite a steeplechaser
I can jump a hurdle even in my girdle
I can open any safe
Without being caught?
Yes
That's what I thought

Anything you can dig, I can dig deeper
I can dig anything deeper than you
Thirty feet
Forty feet
Fifty feet
Sixty feet
No you can't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!

Anyone you can lick, I can lick faster
I can lick anyone faster than you
With your fist
With my feet
With your feet
With an axe
No you can't
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!

Any school where you went I could be master
I could be master much faster than you
Can you spell?
No I can't
Can you add?
No I can't
Can you teach?
Yes, I can! Yes, I can!
