Swimmers have style.

You wouldn’t think it,

but we do. 

 

All the best swimmers have a

swagger a sass a sense of

confidence. We have to. 

 

When we wait behind the

blocks, we’re writhing with

nerves 

 

The water taunts us,

it laughs in our faces,

it waits for us to fail. 

 

Oh and the the noise, It’s overwhelming It

pounds in our heads like a thousand

gunshots going off at once 

 

          But

          still 

          We

          compete 

 

We block out the doubt We get

that fire in our eyes A sense of

passion you can’t deny We

pretend Jaws is chasing us And

we swim for our life. 

 

We don’t settle for slow

We’re not satisfied unless

We gave it our best. 

 

So once again,

Swimmers have style.

You wouldn’t think it,

but we do
