The Impossible Dream

Labor Day 2023

The Impossible Dream

Composed by Mitch Leigh, with lyrics by Joe Danton

To dream

the impossible dream

To fight the unbeatable foe

To bear with unbearable sorrow

To run where the brave

dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong

To love, pure and chaste

from afar

To try

when your arms are too weary

To reach

the unreachable star

This is my quest

to follow that star

No matter how hopeless

No matter how far

To fight for the right

without question or pause

To be willing to march

into hell

for a heavenly cause

And I know

if I’ll only be true

to this glorious quest

That my heart

will lie peaceful and calm

when I’m laid to

my rest.

And the world

will be better for this

That one man

scorned and covered

with scars

Still strove

With his last ounce

of courage

To reach the unreachable


To reach the unreachable star . . .
