Maybe Maybe Not

from Build It Back Again

MAYBE MAYBE NOT
© 2014 by Billy Jonas (Bang-A-Bucket Music/BMI)

There was a man named Fred, he had a horse-horse-horse
He loved and cherished it of course-course-course
‘Til one day it ran away and folks said, “Aren’t you overwrought?”
“You should be sad!” “Your luck is bad!” Fred said, “Maybe... maybe not”

Hey, maybe... maybe not! Hey, maybe... maybe not!

The very next day the horse came back-back-back
With a wild stallion in his track-track-tracks
Folks said, “Aren’t you happy now?” “Oh wow!” “You hit the jack pot!”
“You should be glad!” “Lucky lad!” Fred said, “Maybe... maybe not”

Hey, maybe... maybe not! Hey, maybe... maybe not!

His son, Ned, taught the horse to jump-jump-jump
Like a champ, until he hit a bump-bump-bump
Ned fell off, broke his leg, and folks said, “Now your luck is shot!”
“What will you do?” “Woe is you!” Fred said, “Maybe... maybe not”

Hey, maybe... maybe not! Hey, maybe... maybe not!
Fade to gray? Maybe... maybe not! Hey, maybe... maybe not!

The army knocked upon the door-door-door
Said, “Your son must join us for the war-war-war”
But his leg had not mended, folks said, “Crazy luck you’ve got!”
“Hip hip hooray!” “Happy day!”  Fred said, “Maybe... maybe not”

Hey, maybe... maybe not! Hey, maybe... maybe not!
Fade to gray? Maybe... maybe not! Hey, maybe... maybe not!

The moral of the story should be clear-clear-clear
All things are not as they appear-peer-peer
Life is full of twists and turns and no one ever knows the plot
"Final curtain!" "Are you certain?" "Well… maybe, maybe not"

Hey, Hey, maybe... maybe not! Hey, hey, maybe... maybe not!
Fade to gray? Maybe... maybe not! Hey, hey, maybe... maybe not!
Hey, Hey, maybe... maybe not! Hey, hey, maybe... maybe not!
Fade to gray? Maybe... maybe not! Hey, hey, maybe... maybe not!

There was a man named Fred, he had a horse-horse-horse….
