Lyrics – If a Can, Can

“If a Can, Can” is an unofficial theme song for the FIFA 2014 World Cup in Brazil. It aims to make you feel happy and uplifted, and combine the love for soccer with a passion to change the world.

Lyrics:

[First Verse]
If only you knew how great you are,
Every time you try so hard to be,
Maybe a great pillar of your country,
Or to be the changemaker of the world,
Then I don’t think you’ll ever run away,
Even when your world has broken down,
You should always turn and face your fears,
For what doesn’t kill you makes you strong,
Just keep interested in whatever you do,
Listen to your heart and believe like a fool,
For however humble, it is a real possession,
In the changing fortune of time,

[Chorus]
Oh my brother one day you will understand,
What used to be misunderstood,
And you will see that you can if another can, can, can,
Oh my sister one day you will understand,
What used to be misunderstood,
And you will see that you can if another can, can, can,
Oh, one day, oh, one day
And you will see that you can if another can, can, can,
Oh, one day, oh, one day
And you will see that you can if another can
Owe oweh oweh oweh owah oweh oh yelelelelele iyoweh (x3)

[Second Verse]
Everybody has a bright future,
The question is how, how bright you want yours to be,
Just let the world to see,
That each and every ball you shoot into the pole,
Use it for the love and oneness of mankind,
It can always be fun to see all of the world,
Gathered in one place for a wonderful game,
We have beautiful differences,
Uh, I see it all over your faces,
Every nation wants to win,
But this cup needs just one king,
If you wanna be king then you’ve got to,
Keep interested in whatever you do,
Listen to your heart and believe like a fool,
For however humble, it is a real possession,
In the changing fortune of time.

[Chorus]
Oh my brother one day you will understand,
What used to be misunderstood,
And you will see that you can if another can, can, can,
Oh my sister one day you will understand,
What used to be misunderstood,
And you will see that you can if another can, can, can,
Oh, one day, oh, one day
And you will see that you can if another can, can, can,
Oh, one day, oh, one day
And you will see that you can if another can
Owe oweh oweh oweh owah oweh oh yelelelelele iyoweh (x4)

[Outro]
Let’s open our hearts and let the love for football
Lead us to change the world you know it has the power
Da da da dad a dad a dad a da da
You know it has the power, it has the power
Owe oweh oweh oweh (x2)

    this is the best world cup song. so so great. tomorrow i intend to teach my students poetry and i am using this poem. but i think many people need to understand the line “if you can another can can can”. i dont see why there should be commas between the “can, can, can” in the lyrics above. pls can u?

    • Colby and Awu says:

      Hi Tsangue, wow that sounds really cool!! You raise a good point, maybe there does not need to be commas there… I’m not sure! Please feel free to either use commas, or to not use commas. Either way, we are really happy that you will be using the song as a way to educate! Very cool!! 🙂
