 The Boat Race Song

(based on “The Time Warp”, from Rocky Horror Picture Show)

Richard O’Brien Cover of Richard O’Brien

Music by Richard O’Brien; Lyrics adapted by (a really strange person with a warped sense of reality)

Coach It’s astounding…Time is fleeting…Long distance rowing…Takes its toll.

But listen closely…Not for very much longer…I’ve got to…keep control….

Stroke I can remember…Doing the boat race…Drinking, those moments when…

Defeat would look certain…But a win would be calling…

Whole Crew Let’s do the boat race again…Let’s do the boat race again…

Coach It’s just a reach passed your rig…

Whole Crew To your left and your riiiiiight…

Coach Pull your hands to your hips…

Whole Crew And press your knees down tiiight…But it’s the slow slide baaack…That makes you go insaaaaane…

Let’s do the boat race again…Let’s do the boat race again…

Coxswain It’s so dreamy…Oh, cox box free me…So you can hear me…Yes, and I see you ALL…

Stroke Hold your oar with a light grip…You’re into the time slip…Gaining… seat by seat…

Stroke Hear that bubbling sensation…Like you’re under sedation…

Whole Crew Let’s do the boat race again…Let’s do the boat race again…

Coach It’s just a reach passed your rig…

Whole Crew To your left and your riiiiiight…

Coach Pull your hands to your hips…

Whole Crew And press your knees down tiiight…But it’s the slow slide baaack…That makes you go insaaaaane…

Let’s do the boat race again…Let’s do the boat race again…………………

With thanks to Evan Snyder for the lyrics.
