Sergio Mendes – Olympia lyrics

From the corners of the world they come
The bravest and the best
To write their names in history
And to face the final test
And they gather as they've always done
With one purpose and one name
To give the souls and lives to
The challenge of the game

Olympia, Olympia
Light the flame and let it burn
Olympia, Olympia
You will teach and we will learn
We will learn in your name
We have come to honor courage
More than glory, more than fame
We will learn if we can
The triumph of the spirit
Is the victory of man

They have traveled lonely roads of pain
For the moment yet to be
Knowing in the journey each will find
Their own humanity
And they reach out to each other
To make us all aware
That we celebrate our brotherhood
In the struggles that we share

Olympia, Olympia
Light the flame and let it burn
Olympia, Olympia
You will teach and we will learn
We will learn in your name
We have come to honor courage
More than glory, more than fame
We will learn if we can
The triumph of the spirit
Is the victory of man

And the truth of what you stand for
Will endure when we are gone
Just as long as people dare to be
Olympiad, Olympiad, Olympiad
You live on, you live on

Olympia, Olympia
Light the flame and let it burn
Olympia, Olympia
You will teach and we will learn
We will learn in your name
We have come to honor courage
More than glory, more than fame
We will learn if we can
The triumph of the spirit
Is the victory of man

Olympia
Keep the flame burnin'
Olympia, Olympia
Celebrate our brotherhood
Olympia, Olympia
