Op 9 oktober 2009 zijn Patrick Votrian, Jan van Eerd en Wende met een fiets van de Fietsfabriek door Amsterdam gecrosst, langs onder andere een kapper, een bejaardentehuis, een lagere school en een bruine kroeg op de hoek van het Waterlooplein om iedereen uit volle borst ‘yes, we can’ mee te laten brullen. Ziehier het resultaat daarvan.
Grappig genoeg werd er op die dag bekend gemaakt dat Obama de Nobelprijs in ontvangst mag nemen, hetgeen op 10 december 2009 is gebeurd.

Can we make a song
Steal a melody
Make it strong
Believe in the gods
in yourself
not find it odd

Can we live without a car, a chair
no book, no hair
no cook, no bar
Can you cheat on your wife
Play the guitar
Live without your mother

Can we travel very very very far
Very very far
Can we travel very far

Yes, we can
Yes, we can
Yes, we can

Can you eat a dog, kiss a frog
Eat a bird, bake a pie, eat a snake, eat a lie
Can we shout, can we twist,
Lend a hand
Or unclench a fist

Can you make a joke,
when you’re broke,
when you’re sick to the bone
when your life is full of shit,
When you feel like this is it

Can you ask, trip and cry,
rob, drink, beg, fake and steal
ask for help, feel something real

Yes, we can
Yes, we can
Yes, we can

Can we stir the silence of the lambs
Can we eat the fruit and not be damned

Yes, we can

Can we change a rule, a nose, a person
Can we change a nation
Can we change a fool
Can we change the weather
Can we keep it cool
Make love, make life, make a star
Can we end a war
Can we really ever change
Can we ever really ever change
Can we really really ever change

Yes, we can
Yes, we can
Yes, we can

Can we stir the silence of the lambs
Can we eat the fruit and not be damned

Yes, we can

Why don’t you ever get the point
You’re much too slow for me
Why don’t we ever flip our coin
Reliability

Some like it a lot
Just give a little to me
That’s why I sing this song

They call us crazy early birds
Too early never hurts
Warmth is not as dangerous as
As dangerous as those words

Some like it a lot
Just give a little to me
That’s why I sing this song

(chorus)
Sometimes
We’ve got to sing this song
Sometimes
It takes us way too long
Sometimes
We’ve got to sing out of key

Winter never gets me down
It’s just a feeling
Feeling fine
To care for you or not to care
A goddamned thin thin line

Sometimes…
