Don't Give Up

Lyrics: 

Poor old Uncle Don,
He’s got troubles low and high.
His roof has got a leak in it,
And his well has just gone dry
There’s no water in the kitchen sink
It’s on the bedroom floor instead.
And if he doesn’t fix that roof pretty soon,
He’ll be sleepin’ in a water bed

But Uncle Don is a dreamer
And he would never quit
So he closed his eyes, and scratched his
head, and thought about it a bit.
And when he was finished thinkin’
The answer was clear as a bell
He put a pipe underneath
that hole in the roof,
And ran it right down into the well.
He said

Chorus
Don’t give up! Don’t give in!
Even if you’re feelin’ down
And you don’t know where to begin
Dream of the stars
But start diggin’ down
Remember every tree that you see
Has roots deep in the ground.

Grandpa Jack was 93,
When his hands began to shake
He didn’t hear too well
But he still worked hard
In his bakery decorating cakes
A wedding cake was ordered to read
“I’m yours forever more.”
But the bride passed out
when the cake came in, it said
“You’re underwear is on the floor.”

But Grandpa Jack is a dreamer
And he would never quit
So he closed his eyes, and he went to sleep
And dreamt about it a bit.
And when he was finished dreamin’
He decided to change his style
Next day the ad in the paper read
“Cakes that’ll make you smile”
