Come and listen to a story 'bout a quitter named Rupp,
He's not a 2:06 guy he's a 2:09 and up,
Then one day he was racing in the rain,
Boston whipped his butt as it did to old Shalane.
London? Berlin? Amsterdam? Dubai?
Well the next thing we know is he didn't win he dropped,
He looked just like what Ms. Flanagan had plopped,
Then the race began as the real fast men ran,
And Rupp was there standing just waiting for Al's van.
Chicago? The Lakeshore. Oprah. Gun Violence.
Yuki Kawauchi really took ol' Rupp to task,
Even when Al Sal had provided him a mask,
We know it's not his shoes that we all would like to wear,
Cause when the pack did make its move Rupp was standing there.
Yuki! The man! The winner! Our hero!
