The Lyrics

Some teammate once told me the coach is gonna push me
I ain't the fastest guy in the pool
He was looking very beat after swimming at the meet
Telling me that our coach had been cruel

Well, the meets start coming and they keep continuing
Given the set and I hit the pool swimming
Didn't make sense not to swim for fun
Your strokes improve but your body's cold
So much with back, so much with breast
So what's wrong with swimming an IM?
You'll never know if you don't try
You'll never shine if you don't fly

Hey now, you're a swim star
Take your mark now, today
Hey now, you're a pool star
Get your cap on, go play
And all we win is not gold
All the swimming stars break the mold

It's a big day and coach says it gets bigger
You're on the block now wait until the trigger
But the pool managers beg to differ
Judging by the rules of the aquatic center
The set we do is getting pretty slack
The meet is coming soon so you may as well pack
My fly's on fire, how 'bout you?
That's the way I do it and I always stay cool

Hey now, you're a swim star
Take your mark now, today
Hey now, you're a pool star
Get your cap on, go play
And all we win is not gold
All the swimming stars break the mold

Hey now, you're a swim star
Take your mark now, today
Hey now, you're a pool star
Get your cap on, go play
And all we win is not gold
All the swimming stars

A non swimmer once asked how it is that you're so fast?
I'd love to understand the sport a bit more
I said "Yeah" I can tell you
My team swims a little every day
That way we all prep up for a meet

Well, the meets start coming and they keep continuing
Given the set and I hit the pool swimming
Didn't make sense not to swim for fun
Your strokes improve but your body's cold
So much with back, so much with breast
So what's wrong with swimming an IM?
You'll never know if you don't try (try!)
You'll never shine if you don't fly

Hey now, you're a swim star
Take your mark now, today
Hey now, you're a pool star
Get your cap on, go play
And all we win is not gold
All the swimming stars break the mold

And all we win is not gold
All the swimming stars break the mold
