​Never Been Done

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and appears on the album Blue Boy (2001).

When he was just a boy of five
His dad sat him down and said, "Son
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
Then a voice beyond his paper route
Said, "Go do what's never been done"

And he tried so hard to be
The best he could be
But in his father's eyes
Was always disappointed

Though once he had 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 realise
That it just couldn't be done

Till he met a girl with golden hair
And 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
