32 minutes start on the clock
You stand in place ready for action
Up it goes thrown by the zebra
And so the race begins

Back and forth moves the orange light
Up and down through woven nylon
Bouncing off the sturdy glass
Touched by many, owned by none

You have to want it more
That’s who wins the race
A lesson of ambition, passion
You have to want it more

Back and forth moves the orange light
Up and down through woven nylon
Bouncing off the sturdy glass
Touched by many, owned by none

You glide across the smooth hardwood
Eyes locked on target, teeth gritted
Here they come, but you want it more
Floor, Floor, Glass, Net, Game

Back and forth moves the orange light
Up and down through woven nylon
Bouncing off the sturdy glass
Touched by many, owned by none

Never one to judge by looks
But quick to befriend those with skill
More than a game or race
A way of life, unchanging

Back and forth moves the orange light
Up and down through woven nylon
Bouncing off the sturdy glass
Touched by many, owned by none
