Win

I don’t like being competitive
I only like to win
To lose is just a place in France
It’s Leeds that I’ll be in
But it gets lonely at the top
And so I’ll form a team
I’ll find a fine like-minded mob
Whose eyes all share the gleam
But victory is not enough
We’ll win without a fuss
The losers will feel honoured
That they got to lose to us
No cheating, drugs or teasing thugs
We’ll play the model role
With charm and grace we’ll win the race
One love will be our goal
But triumph’s really just the start
Our quest will never rest
’Til all the winners of the world
Agree that we’re the best
But still we’ll strive for greater glory
History will concur
For ever more they’ll all recall
How great we really were
The universe! Eternity!
No boundaries in our way
This plan is good and now I should
Decide what game to play.

İMal Webb 2008


I wanted to write a song about winning that didn't involve anyone losing. Like something Dr Suess would write. The groove is just 4/4, but it might not seem like it! The low bass sound is buzzing the tip of my tongue against the roof of my mouth.
