This Sporting Life

We are the captains
This sporting life
We wear the right uniforms
We say the right words
The dice that we roll
Are loaded and absurd

We sail the tall ships
This sporting life
We know these seas well
We pilot our ship
Of ambition’s sweet promise
We do not lose grip

We run the long race
This sporting life
The finish line is looming
Just within our eye’s view
It’s all about the winning
Nothing else will do

It’s all about the winning
And we will best you

    Being a seafarer I just loved this. It has the spirit of the sea with it.
