BEDFORD FALLS RISING

George Bailey, a failure? And maybe the story ends –
George Bailey: A failure! And maybe the story ends,
but it cannot keep friends down. Bedford Falls is good,
but it cannot keep friends down. Bedford Falls is good
and maybe, friends cannot keep George Bailey down
for the story is good. But, Bedford Falls a failure? It ends

not so surprising by rising to life’s greater glory.
Not so surprising. By rising to life’s greater glory,
a happy community is forged. For a man who has morals,
a happy community is forged. For a man who has morals,
rising to a community is not surprising, so life’s morals
forged by a man who has greater glory.

No man is able to lasso the moon!
No man is able to lasso the moon!
Clarence when you aid him, he is wonderful,
Clarence when you aid him, he is wonderful
to you. Lasso the moon, Clarence! Man is able
when he is wonderful, so aid him!

It is not so surprising, Bedford Falls is rising, by George Bailey
to forge a community for greater glory.
No man is a failure who has friends, and the story ends
happy. Maybe, but morals aid him:
you cannot keep a good man down, Clarence!
Life’s wonderful when he is able to lasso the moon!
