The Lyrics

This parody sums up the doubtful future of the International Swimming League (ISL) launched in 2019 by Russian-Ukrainian billionaire Konstantin Grigorishin.
That’s great, it starts with Grigorshin
Miller and King, and Adam Peaty
And Chad Le Clos is swimming straight

Look at the athletes fly, listen to reporters say
Swimmers make dough for needs
Grigorshin’s idea for their needs
Take your mark up a notch, fly, back, breast, free
The ladder starts to clatter
With a fear of loss, sum, loss
Swimmers’ futures glimmer, give a well done first year
And a spinning downward spiral come the post season
Left them, claims coming in a hurry
With the lack of pay sinking in chlorine

Team by team, coaches baffled, shocked, annoyed, tricked
Look at that meet plan, great, damn
Oh no, COVID flow, 2020, financial throw
But it could work, Budapest, Hungary
Show me fans are roaring and salvage earnings in the right, right
Not solidarity, insincerity, lawyers called, greed is all
Grigorshin’s isn’t psyched

Will we know ISL a lot longer?
Will we know ISL a lot longer?
Will we know ISL a lot longer I don’t think so

Head GM, London Roar, Peaty’s not paid for his scores
Strike for pay, their way, listen to reporters say
Large debts have piled high, Rob resigned, 2022
FINA postpones World Champs, Fukuoka next summer
Give them greenbacks, give them sponsors, pitch in, pitch in
A swimming league, a swimming league, a swimming league to die
Offer up solutions, offer up alternatives, and athletes decline

Will we know ISL a lot longer? (their future’s looking black)
Will we know ISL a lot longer? (their future’s looking black)
Will we know ISL a lot longer? (their future’s looking black)
I don’t think so (don’t think so)

The following day Sandeno resigned good from the line
Hardships they just want to wrestle, Caeleb Dressel
Phil Lutton, Chad Le Clos and Michael Andrew
DC Trident, Condors, London Roar, gone
Not solidarity, insincerity, neck in debt, right, right

Will we know ISL a lot longer? (black their future’s looking black)
Will we know ISL a lot longer? (black their future’s looking black)
Will we know ISL a lot longer I don’t think so (black their future’s looking black)

Will we know ISL a lot longer?
Will we know ISL a lot longer?
Will we know ISL a lot longer I don’t think so (black their future’s looking black)

Will we know ISL a lot longer? (black their future’s looking black)
Will we know ISL a lot longer? (black their future’s looking black)
Will we know ISL a lot longer I don’t think so (black their future’s looking black)

Will we know ISL a lot longer? (black their future’s looking black)
Will we know ISL a lot longer? (black their future’s looking black)
Will we know ISL a lot longer I don’t think so (black their future’s looking black)

Very good! This is a tough OS, for sure. It pays to have an encyclopedic knowledge of the subject being parodies. Ive done this twice. If youre a fan of GOT, I did one called "Its The End of The Starks As We Know Them."
