(New York)

Yes


Can you help me with this?
Yes.

Can you do this for me?
Yes.

Can you go get this for me?
Yes.

In a world full of No,
Why can't I say it?

Can you pick up my laundry?
Yes.

Can you find my cat?
Yes.

Can you do my homework?
Yes.

In a world full of No,
Why can't I say it?

Can you come with me?
Yes.

Can you sit here?
Yes.

Can you close your eyes?
Yes...why?

In a world full of No,
I need to say it.

Can you do-
No.

Can you come-
No.

Do you want to go out with me?
No...oops.

In a world full of no,
I said it at the wrong time.
