I Think I Can't
by Fiona Cohen

I am the Little Engine That Couldn't
You say that I can do it
You say I have to try
You say I have to think I can
Well I can't
It's not that easy
The mountain lies ahead
Suggesting in its own quiet way
That I should go back
To where I came from
Just turn around
Take the easy way out
Avoid the towering mountain
Stay the Little Engine That Couldn't
