A race like no other
A race around the clock
Shrouded in myth
Shrouded in legacy

Three to drive
But a team beyond
Sun goes up
Lights go out

Ferrari, Toyota
Ford and Porsche
Aston, Nissan
Oreca and more

Dunlop, Mulsanne, esses and straights
Foot to the floor forevermore
Pit stops and fixes
Crashes and fires

The sun goes down
Full beams go on
The race continues
All night long

The sun comes up
The mist clears off
Who’s left now?
Many are not

Sun beams down
Changes a plenty
More drama still yet to come
Lap by lap with all our might

The clock ticks down
And across the line
The checkered flag waves
Another winner crowned


It’s grand and national, it’s the Grand National
It’s long, more than just a furlong
It’s once, just once a year
It’s a horse race, but one special one
Aintree hosted, the winner won’t have coasted
Bets placed now, some down to win and others each way
Crowds flock whilst viewers watch
They jostle and bustle as forty line up
Down drops the line and away they go
Riding and jumping reins in hand
Over the first a down go a few
Twenty Nine more now to go
Becher’s Brook is up at six and twenty two
A handful remain and jump the last
No time for also rans, they’ll be last
Tired and worn they blast for the line
Crowds want the outsider, bookmakers the favourite
To the line they charge
But who will it be
For now…
Now we’ll have to wait and see
