I harken to Wyclef Jean's song "Anything can happen" in which he proclaims over a beat that, in fact, "Anything can happen."

Music from Run Lola Run

Narrator: Man...probably the most mysterious species on our planet. A mystery of unanswered questions. Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? How do we know what we think we know? Why do we believe anything at all? Countless questions in search of an answer...an answer that will give rise to a new question...and the next answer will give rise to the next question and so on.

But, in the end, isn't it always the same question? And always the same answer? The ball is round. The game last 90 minutes. That's a fact. Everything else is just pure theory. Off we go!
He was like a man who wanted to change all; and could not; so burned with his impotence; and had only me, an infinitely small microcosm to convert or detest. John Fowles

Actually, in or not in a song, anything can't just happen. For example, there are the ubiquitous "laws of nature which often restrict what can happen.

Depends if you're open to the idea of multiple dimensions and infinite outcomes. Do I believe a unicorn exists in this universe, no. Do I believe a unicorn can exist somewhere else, yes! I can describe a unicorn in my mind, but that is beside the point.

It's like this, "Yo, you roll into the carnival, and anything can happen, say what, say what, yo, anything can happen."

Why do the laws change when you observe them? That's quantum speak.

Sure, just as, in another universe, Wyclef Jean wrote a song called "Anything can't just happen".

And the idea of a unicorn [in or not in a song] can be anything you are able to imagine. But if someone writes a song about actually having a unicorn, they are either able to confirm this "in reality" or they're not.

You have upped the zany-ness, there can be no doubt.

I did say I believe in other dimensions. I don't know what goes on there.

I not sure anyone can confirm anything, to be honest.

But one thing is clear, never play leapfrog with a unicorn.
