South African Swimmer: Penny Heyns - multiple Olympic Gold/World record-holder.

Lyrics

THERE'S A BRIGHT PENNY


CHORUS

THERE'S A BRIGHT PENNY , SHINING IN THE WATER

A SILVER FISH SWIMMING IN THE POOL

SHE'LL WIN THE RACE , THAT SURELY YOU CAN KNOW

THAT'S PENNY HEYNS , THE PENNY MADE OF GOLD


1. BORN IN SPRINGS , TO PUT SPRING IN HER KICK

AND WENT TO SCHOOL AT AMANZIMTOTI

THEN WENT ON TO UNIVERSITY IN THE UNITED STATES

SHE HAS MANY WORLD RECORDS TO HER NAME

THE BREASTSTROKE STYLE HAS WON HER CLAIM TO FAME

SHE HAS BECOME ONE OF SOUTH AFRICA'S

BRIGHTEST SHINING LIGHTS


CHORUS


2.IN DURBAN IN 1996

THATS WHERE SHE BROKE HER FIRST WORLD RECORD

THEN AT ATLANTA THE SUMMER OLYMPICS , SHE BROKE ANOTHER TWO

SHE HAS NOW FROM SERIOUS SWIMMING RETIRED

AND SPENDS HER TIME IN SPEAKING AND WRITING

SHE'S THE BRIGHT LIGHT THAT MANY PEOPLE IN

SOUTH AFRICA ADMIRE


CHORUS
