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 (and the world) will be better for this (the world will be better for this)
That one man (just one man) scorned and covered with scars (scorned and covered with scars)
Still strove (he still strove) with his last ounce of courage (with his very last ounce of courage)
To reach (to reach) the unreachable star (the unreachable star)
To fight (oh to fight) the unbeatable foe (the unbeatable foe)
To dream the impossible dream

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 star
To fight the unbeatable foe
To dream the impossible dream
