I.Faster

Chorus:

Faster, higher, stronger,

Olympic champions, we.

Faster, higher, stronger,

That&#39s all we want to be!

 

Speed Skater 1:           The training&#39s over

                                  We&#39re on the ice track

                                  We&#39re primed for action

                                  There&#39s no looking back.

 

Speed Skater 2:           On your marks

                                  Get set, go!

                                  It&#39s now or never

                                  We can&#39t be slow.

 

II. Higher

Chorus

Faster, higher, stronger,

Olympic champions, we.

Faster, higher, stronger,

That&#39s all we want to be!

 

Figure Skater 1:           Poised at last

                                 To take to the ice floor

                                 Hours of practice

                                 Muscles sore.

 

Figure Skater 2:           A perfect performance

                                  A dazzling show

                                  Of grace and elegance

                                  And lines that flow.

 

III. Stronger

Chorus

Faster, higher, stronger,

Olympic champions, we.

Faster, higher, stronger

That&#39s all we want to be!

 

Speed Skater:              What does it take

                                  To skate at great speed?

                                  How does it feel

                                  To take the lead?

 

Ski Jumper:                  What does it take

                                   To jump off that board?

                                   How does it feel

                                   To go straight as a sword?
