The Lyrics

The typical life of a competitive swimmer summed up.
Butterfly, breaststroke
Chlorine’s making my eyes soaked
Backstroke, freestyle
Goggles, swim caps
Kicking hard to go fast
Mornings, evenings

And they say
I should join the swim team
Wake up want to scream
In the pool since fifteen
And lately, my body feels
Pumped up ready, fearful
Cowering like poultry
And coach shouts
The same things he has which can prep us

‘Cause we’re like the big backbone
And go wild for a trophy owned
And we wanna take first tonight
There on the deck, we raise the award we won
With parents cheering by the ton
Getting gold tomorrow night
If we taper right
We taper right

Techsuits, teammates
Friendships formed in close fate
Buoys, flip turns
DQ, IMs
Prelims, and Finals
Trophies, medals

And they say
I should join the swim team
Wake up want to scream
In the pool since fifteen
And lately, my body feels
Pumped up ready, fearful
Cowering like poultry
And coach shouts
The same things he has which can prep us

‘Cause we’re like the big backbone
And go wild for a trophy owned
And we wanna take first tonight
There on the deck, we raise the award we won
With parents cheering by the ton
Getting gold tomorrow night
If we taper right
We taper right

A meet comes in site
Trips overnight
Dryland work for a better time
This time, we’ll work hard tonight
Down the black line

And they say
I should join the swim team
Wake up want to scream
In the pool since fifteen
And lately, my body feels
Pumped up ready, fearful
Cowering like poultry
And coach shouts
The same things he has which can prep us

‘Cause we’re like the big backbone
And go wild for a trophy owned
And we wanna take first tonight
There on the deck, we raise the award we won
With parents cheering by the ton
Getting gold tomorrow night
If we taper right
We taper right
Right, right
If we taper right
Right, right
A meet is in sight
