It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

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

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

The Weeknd Dropped A New Album
Abel Tesfaye’s fourth album has officially dropped and two things are automatically clear: it’s a total banger and the majority of it is all about ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid. After Hours sings forlornly about his ex diving headfirst into the regret he’s experienced since their breakup. Fans are already directing all the lyrics, but it’s pretty obvious […]

Out of all the Cyrus clan, Billy Ray was the last of them we thought we wanted new music from. And a year ago, most people didn’t even know who Lil Nas X was. That all changed when Billy Ray Cyrus and Lil Nas X collaborated on the hit song “Old Town Road.” The hip-hop/country crossover shocked and shook the music industry, totally colliding two words that don’t necessarily seem to mesh well. But the result was amazing and the songs popularity just won’t stop.

 

Lil Nas X actually called the genre “country trap.” “Old Town Road” has blown up and is one of the hottest tracks going into the 2020 Grammys. So, given its popularity since 2019, we have the answers to some pressing questions.

 

The lyrics, “Yeah, I’m gonna take my horse to the old town road / I’m gonna ride ’til I can’t no more” is apparently very deep. Lil Nas explained to Genius that the song represents the path to success, wealth, fortune, and all that good stuff he’s experiencing right now. Lil Nas X believes his opportunities are limitless, hence why he’s going to ride ’til he can’t no more. “I got the horses in the back” represents how Lil Nas X is traveling on his journey to success, and his acknowledgement of the talent he has to give to the world. The lyrics “Ridin’ on a horse, ha / You can whip your Porsche” are meant to show he knows he has the talent to make it in hip-hop.

 

“Can’t nobody tell me nothin’ / You can’t tell me nothin’” These lyrics are a message to anyone who doubts the 20-year-old singer. He won’t let anything bring him down on his way to the top.
