## Lyrics

• Let me show you
• Let me show you the way to go
• I don’t know everything
• But there’s something I do know
• (I know, I know)
• I’ve read and heard a lot
• And now I’m ready to show
• That we can come together
• And think like one
• Come together now
• Live together underneath the sun
• Let me show you
• Let me show you the way to go
• Let me show you, come on
• Let me show you the way to go
• Just put your trust in me
• I’ll try not to let you down
• (Let you down, let you down)
• The job is hard to do
• But only we can work this out
• 'Cause we can help each other to overcome
• We can do it
• We can do it now
• Rejoice everybody
• And get the job done
• Just let me show you
• Let me show you
• Let me show you the way to go
• Follow me my friend, hey, hey
• Let me show you
• Let me show you the way to go
• That we can help each other to overcome
• We can do it
• We can do it, now
• Live together underneath the sun
• Just let me show you
• Let me show you
• Let me show you the way to go
• I swear I’ll never let you down
• (Let me show you)
• Come on
• (Let me show you the way to go)
• We can do it, we can do it
• We can do it, now
• (Let me show you)
• (Let me show you the way to go)
• Let me, let me, let me
• Just let me, let me show you, now
• (Let me show you)
• Come on
• (Let me show you the way to go)
• (Let me show you)
• (Let me show you the way to go)
• I swear
• I’ll never let you down
• Come on
• Come on
• Let me, let me, let me show you
• Let me, let me, let me, let me show you
• Let me show you
• Never let you down
• Never let you down
• Put your hand in mine
• We can do it, we can do it
• We can work it out
• And get on top
• Let me show you
• Let me show you
• Let me show you
• Let me, let me, let me
• Let me, let me, let me show you
