Lyrics sample

Here I am at the starting line again.

I’m ready and I’m waiting to begin.

I long to seize the moment,

To begin making it happen.

For a silver or gold

Take my place and be bold...

In the race of life.

We’ll chase the prize!

It’s there to be won, rain or sun.

We only have to try.

Sharing hopes, sharing dreams,

Being part of the team:

Let’s never rest until we’ve done our best.
