The Lyrics

ski suits, so tight for the effect
leatherette,shrink wrapped, so perfect
drug tests for the illegal legs
they do so good that we just shake our heads

we are watching the olympics,
ski, skate shoot,
watching the olympics
when they shoot, shoot, schuss, schuus,
they're tensing up until they hear the start
then let it loose and give it all their heart

ski jump and they're jumping fine
you just see them whizzing by in alpine
wind resitant loser by a nose
close up of the face that cries, oh so close...
you trained so hard, and you not so close just yet
you cry your eyes out, is this how bad pain gets?
you don't know how much ore of this you can take
you got another Bronze back in Placid Lake

we are watching the olympics,
ski, skate shoot,
watching the olympics
when they shoot, shoot, schuss, schuus,
they know they're ready, 'cause they're trained so hard,
one little slip will leave a broken heart

you think you're alone until you see the others in it
the pain is here to stay fame is here for a visit
they call it doping justice when you're past the legal limit
kill the chemist, he was supposed to keep you in it..
now you're ready to hear the worst about your doping interference
people thought it took amiracle to make that display
positive for teroidals will blow you way

we are watching the olympics
don't get cute
watching the olympics
I get so angry when the dopers cry
their medals are gone, the winners cleanly tried

we like watching the olympics
watching the olympics
watching the olympics
watching the olympics

I'm loving the Winter Olympics (although Australia has a snowball's chance in hell of winning anything...). Add to that the fact that this is one of my fave EC songs, and a fun parody, and you got a winner. 555

455--one of my favorite EC songs as well...although you left out a couple of lines from the "you think you're alone..." rap section so I'm deducting a point from Pacing. Nevertheless, tackling this OS this was an Olympian feet (not to be confused which an Olympian's foot, which probably does not smell very good right about now...)
