The Lyrics

Up on the start blocks
Swimmers pause
Hear the parents cease applause
Into the pool with one slick jump
Then on the podiums those square stumps

Take your mark
Fly like a lark
Take you mark
Fly like a lark

Up on the start blocks
Hup, hup, hup
Stare at that black line
Don’t give up

Look at the butterfly of Michael Phelps
Oh how his strokes give flyers help
Now observe Dressel with his breaststroke
He’s doing well feeling jovial and soaked

Take your mark
Fly like a lark
Take you mark
Fly like a lark

Up on the start blocks
Hup, hup, hup
Stare at that black line
Don’t give up

Now see the freestyle of ol’ Mark Spitz
He never knows when to call it quits
He had a mustache when he was young
Lookin’ like Gabe Kaplan while working his lungs

Take your mark
Fly like a lark
Take you mark
Fly like a lark

Up on the start blocks
Hup, hup, hup
Stare at that black line
Don’t give up
