Youth Of The World
We are the youth of the world
We are the messengers of peace,
We are the new generation
And we’re here to stay;
We are the hope for the future
We are the road from the past,
We are the lines, newly written,
That will point the way
To a better life!

We’re the dreamers of dreams,
We’re the singers of songs
And we’ll carry the flame
To the place where it belongs.

So it lights the darkest corners
That the world has never seen,
So it shines beyond the farthest place
That anyone has been;
Let it break down all the walls between
Religion, creed and race;
Let it shed the light of self-esteem
On every human face;
Let it shine
Let it shine
Let it shed the light of self-esteem
On every human face;
Let it shine!

We are the youth of the world
We are the messengers of peace,
We are the new generation
And we’re here to stay;
We are the hope for the future
We are the road from the past
We are the lines, newly written,
That will point the way
To a better life!

Easy Rider
Wheels!
Tearing the track on every corner, every turn;
Moving so fast you feel the carbon fibre burn;
Feeling the wind around your arms, around your head,
You look around
And you’ve left ‘em all for dead!

Into the straight, you see the faces in the crowd;
All in a blur, but there’s a sound that’s growing loud,
Driving you on, you never dreamed how good it feels
To cross the line
When you’ve got fire in your…
Wheels, wheels, in your wheels.

Easy rider, take your place in the sun,
Easy rider, now your time has begun;
Easy rider, there’ll be no looking back,
Easy rider
In every competition
Destroy the opposition
‘Cos you’ll be way ahead of the pack!

Into the straight, you see the faces in the crowd;
All in a blur, but there’s a sound that’s growing loud,
Driving you on, you never dreamed how good it feels
To cross the line
When you’ve got fire in your…
Wheels, wheels, in your wheels.

Easy rider, take your place in the sun,
Easy rider, now your time has begun;
Easy rider, there’ll be no looking back,
Easy rider
In every competition

Destroy the opposition
‘Cos you’ll be way ahead of the pack!
Tearing the track on every corner, every turn;
Moving so fast you feel the carbon fibre burn;
Easy… rider… easy… rider… easy… rider… easy… rider
**** RIDE.

You Can Depend On Me!
You can depend on me;
Can I depend on you?
If we can pull together all the way,
Then soon we’re going to say
That there’s nothing you and I can’t do
If you depend on me
And I depend on you.

You shouldn’t need me to remind you,
Because I’m always here behind you!
Just look around and you will see
That’s where I’m always going to be;
I’m just a member of the crew
And I depend on you!

We have to think in such a different frame of mind,
‘Cos I’m in front
(And I’m behind)
And even though we never see just where we’re going
We’ll be fine
As long as we keep on rowing!

Audience:
There’s just one thing we’d like to say,
Why don’t you look the other way?
You’ll never win a race today
If you’re always going backwards!
That’s all we really have to say
To you!

London Twenty12
It’s been a long time, such a long time to wait
It’s been a long time, such a long time but now
After sixty four years they’ve come
And you can feel it like the beating of a drum
As that Olympic flame starts to run
Bring it on! (clap….) shouted – London!

It’s been a long time, such a long time to wait
Since nineteen forty eight
But now we’re back on track
The games are comin’ back!
Bring it on! (clap….) shouted – London!

London…. twenty
London…. twenty
London…. twenty
London twenty twelve

London…. twenty
London…. twenty
London…. twenty
They’re back in London twenty twelve

After sixty four years they’ve come
And you can feel it like the beating of a drum
As that Olympic flame starts to run
Bring it on! (clap….) shouted – London!

Believe
When I look up to the stars,
There’s a burning deep inside me
And I feel a power growing in my soul.
There is something I can sense,
Deep within a dream to guide me,
And I know that I am reaching for my goal.

I can do anything at all,
I can climb the highest mountain,
I can feel the ocean calling wild and free.
I can be anything I want,
With this hope to drive me onward,
If I can just believe in me.

When the skies are dark and grey,
We still know the sun is shining:
Though it’s out of sight, its light is glowing still.
And as long as I believe,
There is nothing I can’t wish for;
Not a dream that I’m unable to fulfill.

(Oo oo oo oo)

I can do anything at all,
I can climb the highest mountain,
I can feel the ocean calling wild and free.
I can be anything I want,
With this hope to drive me onward,
If I can just believe in me.

(Ah ah ah,
If I can just believe in me.)

And whatever it takes I’ll find it somehow;
Whatever it needs I’ll show I’m strong.
Whatever it takes I’ll make it happen:
Finding out where I belong.

(I’ll find it somehow.
I’ll show I’m strong, I’ll show I’m strong.
I’ll make it happen:
Finding out where I belong.)

While the world is spinning round,
I can sometimes lose direction
And I know how hard it is to find my way.
But with friends around to care,
There is nothing I can’t handle,
And I’ll face the future treasuring each day.

(Oo oo oo oo)

I can do anything at all,
I can climb the highest mountain,
I can feel the ocean calling wild and free.
I can be anything I want,
With this hope to drive me onward,
If I can just believe in me. 
(Ah ah ah, If I can just believe in me.)

We Are The Champions
I’ve paid my dues,
Time after time.
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime.
And bad mistakes,
I’ve made a few.
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I’ve come through.
And I need to go on and on and on and on.

We are the champions my friends.
And we‘ll keep on fighting till the end.
We are the champions,
We are the champions.
(Part one) No time for losers, ‘cause
(Part two) Ooh
(All) We are the champions
Of the world.

I’ve taken my bows,
And my curtain calls.
You brought me fame and fortune and ev’rything that goes with it,
I thank you all.
But it’s been no bed of roses,
No pleasure cruise.
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race and I ain’t gonna lose.
And I need to go on and on and on and on.

We are the champions my friends.
And we‘ll keep on fighting till the end.
We are the champions,
We are the champions.
(Part one) No time for losers, ‘cause
(Part two) Ooh
(All) We are the champions
Of the (Part one) World.
(Part two) We are the champions my friends.
(All) And we‘ll keep on fighting till the end.
We are the champions,
We are the champions.
(Part one) No time for losers, ‘cause
(Part two) Ooh
(All) We are the champions.

The Glorious Games
I run and cycle, dive and swim; I’m always being active.
But if events I want to win, each day I have to practise.
You need determination to achieve your very best
and you’ve got to keep on going if you want to beat the rest.
So as I train, I concentrate and focus on my dream
to represent my country on the next Olympic team.

I want to race at the Glorious Games,
achieve first place at the Glorious Games;
amaze the crowds, they will shout my name.
I want to win at the Glorious Games.
I want to race at the Glorious Games,
achieve first place at the Glorious Games;
amaze the crowds, they will shout my name.
I want to win at the Glorious Games.

I’m training till my muscles ache; I know I am improving.
I’m getting faster, records break, yes, now I’m really moving.
My training sessions help me as I listen to my coach.
I’m learning new techniques that are improving my approach.
So when you see me racing onwards to the finish line,
I’m picturing the moment when a medal will be mine.

Chorus

Lift The Flame On High
Lift the flame on high and let’s begin the journey
from Olympia across the globe to start the Games again.
Lift the flame on high, for this Olympic symbol
of unity and harmony; the hope must be that all
will see peace around the world.

Hear the beating wings, see a sudden rush of brightness;
doves begin to flutter and to rise.
And our hearts will soar in a joyful expectation,
for it’s peace they symbolise.

Chorus

Five Olympic rings show the continents connected
at the Games, competing side by side.
We can celebrate and applaud each others’ triumph,
all together unified.
