That "maybo it couldn't," but ho 'would bo one
ho wouldn't say so till ho'd tried.
So ho buckled right in, with tho traco of a grin
On his iaco. If ho worried, ho hid it.
Ho started to sing as he tackled- tho thing
That couldn't bo done, and ho did it.
Somobody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;
Af, least, no one ovor has dono it."
But ho took off his coat and ho took off his hat,
And tho first thing wo knew ho'd begun it;
With tho lift of his chin, and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit;
Ho started to sing as ho tackled tho thing
That couldn't be dono, and ho did it.
There are thousands to tell you it cannot bo dono,
There aro thousands to prophesy failure;
There aro thousands to point out to you, one by one,
Tho dangers that wait to assail you;
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Thon tako off your coat and go to it;
Just start in to sing as you tackle tho thing
That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.
