Posed like swallows before a dive Five lanes, and on the left hand side Stands Tubby Barlow wet with fear Not quite sure what he's doing there On your marks, get set, and they're in Tubby's consumed by the urge to win Four are greased lightning, one is lard But Tubby's determined not to be left behind Ten years of being pushed around flash before his eyes Alone in the schoolyard eating his pride In third place as they reach the turn His arms ache and his chest burns Kids are cheering from the balcony Tubby's oblivious, all he can see Is that this is the moment to change his life By collecting a trophy on the other side Past Steven Clough and Kenny Grey "Mum, mum, I'm winning the race!" He opens his mouth and water floods in He's coughing, choking, panicking Down once, down twice, 'till someone screams "Sir, Tubby Barlow's drowning!" But Baz Wilson's already in Got his intermediate in life saving The captain of the football team Idol of every young girl's dream Drags Tubby towards the rope But Tubby's confused and grips his throat As both boys begin to skin "Sir, Baz Wilson's drowning!" Tubby opens his eyes for one last time Sees Baz flailing at his side Like Jesus after the resurrection Sees himself as Baz's salvation Grabs Baz, heads for the side "Chariots of Fire" playing in his mind Meanwhile Steven Clough gets first position But they're all watching Tubby save Baz Wilson Now Tubby lays like a whale on the shore Gasping and spewing like a real hero Like a real hero!
