The thing that
couldn't be done
Somebody scoffed: Oh, you'll never do that;
At least no one ever has done
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
first thing we knew he'd begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a
bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quitting,
He started to
sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.
