I now officially hate music class

One...stupid...song. We are forced to sing incredibly high for one stupid song. I can’t get out of it, and I can’t complain. I am a girl who is in the lower range but boys in my class who have already hit puberty can hit it and I can’t. Their natural voices and ranges are over an octave lower than mine. I can’t even hit the octave below the note I am supposed to sing. Literally everyone else in my class can do it, even though it is hard. I am physically incapable of doing it. It is not difficult, it is impossible for me to sing. All those YouTube videos of “how to sing high” and my music teacher’s tips don’t help. I am not a musical person so I can’t really say my range or what notes we need to hit (they don’t even show the sheet music to us). All I know is that this is in third verse of the song “Beautiful December.” (I don’t remember the lyrics but it’s something like “____ wings” and “your dreams _____ December”)
