The Lyrics

Welcome to Amiright Sports, today we take a look at the mental side of running and one of its oddest events - Wife Carrying (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wife_carrying). Starting off in Finland as a joke some ten years ago it has quickly gained serious worldwide popularity, possibly due to that in a world of bulked up male chauvinism on steroids it gives petite women who are into sports a chance at equal success without having to live up to the female body ideal set by the Bulgarian Shot Put Champions League, the Ukranian Tractor Pulling Series and Jarmila Kratochvilova (JFGI). Now the first prize in Wife Carrying being the wife's weight in beer the winners weren't able to talk to us, but this is what the others had to say in the Loser's Lounge Sauna.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:

Blame your down-pressed moves
On the wife that killed your grooves
And how she's on buffets
Blame she's getting gross
And curse she's not Kate Moss
A wife of gel brings losing your way

Carry your wife and I'll carry mine
Marry a dwarf and you'll do fine
Cows make you cower, come last by an hour
You wasted your power

Blame you're getting tired
On her form expired
Her plates are full of food
Chocolate Cookie Chips
They go straight to her hips
The place you'll finish is dead last ensued

Carry your wife and I'll carry mine
Marry a dwarf and you'll do fine
Cows make you cower, come last by an hour
You wasted your power


Repeat Chorus Throughout The Track

"Cows make you cower, come last by an hour". . .now that is some wicked rhyming. Never had heard the OS before today, very interesting OS choice to say the least. "Chocolate Cookie Chips They go straight to her hips" was as strong couplet too, 5s

once again, and in these circumstances only, mind you, Celine Dion would make a nice choice of wife too, although personally, like you Peter, I'd opt for Kate Moss (which conveniently happens to rhyme with "weight loss") - 555

That was well thought of. It does kind of explain the mental side of running that can be grueling. As usual the rhymes were spot on. Good work.
