"It's impossible but I'll do it."
There once was a man named Philippe Petit,
who enjoyed walking wires on his feet.
Later in his career Philippe wanted to do more,
so he brought his wire to New York.
Here Petit set his eyes on the towers,
something that would take him months and hours.
With these towers now his friends,
here a dream in 1974 begins.
On the night of August 6th,
they tied the ropes checked & checked again.
Then the next morning an hour after six,
Petit would start out with walking then continue with tricks.
An echo of the audience cheering below,
this was quoted a "Once in a lifetime show."
Now the police an the tower's owner gather,
Only to see Petit cheering with laughter.
After eight crossings in 45 minutes,
Petit showed his defying of limits.
So after the show & all the publicity,
Petit was taken then into custody.
And even with no permit & laughing at cops,
Tizzoli (tower owner) made sure the charges were dropped.
So now Petit with dreams like ours,
Shows that reality can go just as far.
