Hello. Could you please help me understand the construction of "ain't no way in hell"? It's from a song. It seems that it means "there is no way in hell" but what does that mean? It's impossible in hell that I'm going to fail? Thank you.

    As Elroy says above.

    Examples:

    "There's no way in hell I would give him my money" = "I will absolutely NOT give him my money".

    "There's no way in hell he would be able to climb that mountain" = "It's impossible for him to climb that mountain".

    "No way in hell did he buy that car" = "It's total nonsense to say he bought that car".

    It's always negative, never used as a positive.
