An evening pause: , The song “Impossible,” sung by Julie Andrews and Edie Adams, from the live 1957 television production of Rogers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
For the world is filled with zanies and fools
Who don’t believe in sensible rules
And won’t believe what sensible people say
And because these daft and dewy-eyed dopes
Keep building up impossible hopes,
Impossible things keep happening every day.
