Studmarks on the Summits

This song is by Sportchestra! and appears on the album 101 Songs About Sport (1988).

Business bought the athletes out
With gold medals and role models
Drugs and media and national pride
Why join in when you can watch it on tv?
So out of the stadiums
Into the hills
Out of the armchairs
Onto the fells
Staggering through mud and peat
Gasping breaths and sucked-in cheeks
Bogs like lead to clutch your feet
Through the rivers, over peaks

So out of the stadiums
Into the hills
Out of the armchairs
Onto the fells
Studmarks next to summit heather
Everything suddenly comes together
No audience viewing-figures
Just you against yourself
So out of the stadiums
Into the hills
Out of the armchairs
Onto the fells
