A Holiday Club Song with an Olympics Theme

Looking through the Doug Horley Songbook, I couldn’t find one to fit our Olympic themed holiday club this week. So I had a go at writing one myself and it seems to be going down a treat with the kids. It has some great actions (e.g. run, row, ride, swim, a Bolt celebration) and ends with everyone doing their own winner’s celebration.

Words and music are below. If I get time I’ll try and publish a recoding of it too.

Can you run the hundred metres quicker than the Bolt?
Can you row from A to Z like Watkins and Grainger?
Could you ride the Tour de France faster than Bradley Wiggins?
Could you beat Michael Phelps into the pool?

Well they’re all great, make no mistake;
But something else I know is better.
Jesus loves me, just because I’m me you see;
On Team JC everyone’s a winner.
