Lyrics To Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better

And now little lady, if you’ll kindly step up to the parapet
I’ll give you a lesson in marksmanship.​

You couldn’t give me a lesson in long distance spittin’.​

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

No, you can’t (Yes, I)

Can

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

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, no, you can’t, no, you can’t, no, you can’t (Yes, I, I, I, 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)
