Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing

Somewhere in the darkness
There's a man they call the skipper, fast asleep
And dreaming of gold

He wakes before the sun does
Even though he'd rather stay in bed
He curses the cold in Minnesota
Why's it always so damn cold?
He's got a job to do
He does it for me and you
And the red and the white and the blue

Because he knows he's got to curl (Curl!)
(Come on, baby, put the rock in the house)
Because he knows he's got to curl (Curl!)
(Come on, baby, put the rock in the house)

His team is there and ready
Though the coffee's warm, their breath hangs in the air
They hit the ice

No one's there to see it
There's no press or paparazzi, that's OK
But it'd be nice if someone noticed
That they've all been working hard
Pushing these rocks around
Trying to gain some ground
Got to keep the Canadians down

And all they gotta do is curl (Curl!)
(Come on, baby, put the rock in the house)
Oh yeah, they know they got to curl (Curl!)
(Come on, baby, put the rock in the house)

Come on, baby, put the rock in the house
Come on, baby, put the rock in the house
Come on, baby, put the rock in the house

Their lives outside are waiting
But they give until they've given all they have
Dead on their feet

The skipper isn't certain
But he thinks that maybe this could be the year
When they defeat the world forever
And they bring that medal home
Now it seems years away
Just taking it day by day
When it comes, he'll be ready to play

Because he knows he's got to curl (Curl!)
(Come on, baby, put the rock in the house)
Because he knows he's got to curl (Curl!)
(Come on, baby, put the rock in the house)

Somewhere in the darkness
There's a man they call the skipper, fast asleep
And dreaming of gold

--Jonathan Coulton, Curl
