The Lyrics

I have often screamed
When hit in the face
By a great big discus
Which has been thrown at me
But the crowds still cheer
Discus in my face
And the world keeps spinning
And than I just cannot see

I'll teach you someday
How to throw the discus
In the correct way
You have to be strong
I know ev'ry try
I'll be asking why
When you throw the discus
Throw it right where it belongs

Down an endless road
To embrace my fate
Though the road may be long
The discus will fly true
For the thousanth time
It is not a toy
It may take a lifetime
But somehow I'll see it through

And we won't look back
You can throw the discus
And keep it on track
No, you can't accept defeat
It's an uphill slope
But I won't lose hope
Till you throw the discus
And my teaching is complete

But to look beyond the glory of the hardest throw
You will see your practice measures on your go

Like a shooting star
You can throw the discus
You will beat the world
You will live its harms
I don't care how far
If you throw the discus
Then you'll get a hero's medal
Holding in your arms...

You will beat the world
You will live its harms
The you'll get a hero's medal
Holding in your arms...
