Today, the youth of America
And those of foreign land,
Have much in common, generally,
For which they proudly stand.
The Little Leagues of yesterday,
Along with those of today,
The High School teams, the College teams
How they all so love to play!
But where would any one of them be
In this world of sin and vice,
If it were not for men of valor
Who gamble on youths, not dice.
I speak of men, who are true men,
Who give of their love and time
To mold the tender characters
Of young athletes in their prime.
Of course, I speak of COACHES
From Little League to College,
Without them, I say, "sports today,
Would be very low on mileage."
So hail the COACHES, one and all,
For they deserve applause
To them, "Olympic Flames" should burn
Why? Well, just because.
