Somebody said that the couldn’t it is in doneBut he v a chuckle repliedThat “maybe it couldn’t,” yet he would be oneWho wouldn’t speak so it spins he’d tried.So he buckled right in through the map of a grinOn his face. If he concerned he hid it.He began to sing together he tackled the thingThat couldn’t it is in done, and also he did it!

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;At the very least no one ever has excellent it;”But he took off his coat and he took off his hatAnd the very first thing us knew he’d begun it.With a lift of his chin and also a little of a grin,Without any doubting or quiddit,He began to sing together he tackled the thingThat couldn’t it is in done, and he go it.

You are watching: Somebody said that it couldnt be done

There room thousands to tell friend it cannot be done,There room thousands come prophesy failure,There are thousands to allude out to you one through one,The risks that wait come assail you.But just buckle in v a bit of a grin,Just take it off your coat and go come it;Just start in to sing as you handle the thingThat “cannot be done,” and you’ll carry out it.
