Ron Sexsmith – Never Been Done lyrics

When he was just a boy of five
His dad sat him down and said, "Son
Well, the light that I see in your eyes
Says you'll do what's never been done"

Well, the boy, he grew the way they do
Underneath the moon and sun
And a voice beyond his paper route
Said, "Go, do what's never been done"

And he tried too hard
To be the best he could be
But in his father's eyes
It was always disappointing

Though he had once so many dreams
They were all wrapped up in one
This scruffy boy in grubby jeans
Who would do what's never been done

In school, he moved on well enough
To the rat race, he did run
To prove that he had the stuff
For to do what's never been done

And he worked so hard
To be the model son
Till he came to realize
That it just couldn't be done

Till he met a girl with golden hair
With a heart as big as the sun
Said, "If you will take me as I am
Then you'll do what's never been done
If you will take me as I am
Then you'll do what's never been done"
