The Lyrics

You feel that shiver in the pool
And it’s early by the rule as coach says
Look at the whiteboard you gasp and you don’t say a thing
He’s written up a kick set, 25 yards
You’re feelin’ drenched when you see your body spring

Well now you’re in the lane and it’s shared by cold tired faces
Coming in out of sleep they hear the voice blow down
Competitions in many places
In the Mid West
In the Mid West
Omaha town

Yo check out IM Matt, he knows all the strokes
Mind, it’s strictly short course, he always has to swim in time
His dad’s former techsuit is all, he can afford
When dives right into the blue, to stroke his climb

And Cody doesn’t mind, if he doesn’t make the team
He’s got a lifeguard job, he doing alright
He can do the butterfly like anything
Taperin’ it up, for big meet nights
With the Sultans
We’re the Sultans of swim

There’s a throng of young jocks they’re muckin’ about in the locker
Pumped and dressed in their best black jammers and their cupped up backs
They don’t give a damn about any Mark Spitz wannabe
It’s not what they call a good stroke
And the Sultans
Yeah, the Sultans they swam Breaststroke

And then the coach he steps right up with a microphone
And says at last just as the practice time’s up
“Goodnight, now it’s time to go home”
Then they take their mark with one last “hup!”

We are the Sultans
We are the Sultans of swim
