The expo!, The expo!
Swag, Swag, Swag
Swag, Swag, Swag

Look around, everywhere you turn there’s freebies
There’s smoothies, Roctane and Gu [look around]
You try everything you can to escape
But there’s a booth calling you [it’s calling you]
Some brand new race that you shouldn’t run
But the medal weighs a pound or two
An exotic place to visit with the crew
And there’s a tech shirt,
you know that magic word, so say it..

Come on, it’s “Swag” [Swag]
Though your body’s broken and bruised [broken and bruised]
But, hey, hey
Think of the Swag [Swag]
Though your checkbook wants to say no [wants to say no]
You know you will do it

All you need is material motivation
Then you’ll run 10Ks galore [10Ks galore]
Find the site for the online registration
Your Visa opens the door [opens up the door]
It makes no difference if you're fast or slow
A newbie or a sage
Once that fever hits you it will never let go
Grab all that free stuff
You can’t get enough, you know it

Come on, Swag [Swag]
Every single item is useful [so very useful]
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, Swag [Swag]
Fill that gift bag up ‘til it’s full [up ‘til it’s full]
You know you can do it

If at the expo you can’t find it
Don’t despair, there’s lots of time left
The finish area is fruiti-ful
The post race tent is so bountiful
Musical, please recall
That this is what you ran for…

Come on, Swag [Swag]
Every single item is useful [so very useful]
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, Swag [Swag]
Fill that gift bag up ‘til it’s full [up ‘til it’s full]
You know you can do it

Swag, [Swag]
Here’s what you’ll find there…
(Stuff We All Get)
Swag, [Swag]
Here’s what you’ll find there…
(Stuff We All Get)

Manicures, emery boards
Posters, candy, pirate swords
Yogurt, bagels, pizza, wings
A subscription to a magazine
Cake, cookies, Harlequins
Stickers, coffee, safety pins
Jackets, subs, ID tags
Leg massages, duffel bags
Shoes, hats, towels, more new races
Pedometers, two shoe laces
Coupons, cameras, bananas too
Free engraving, ice cold brew
Trading cards, a chap stick tube
Athletic tape and body lube
Donuts, hand sanitizer, magnets
And warm up in your mylar blankets

Swag, Swag

Oooh, you've got to
Get it all, cause you know you’ll use it
Oooh, you've got to just
Fill that gift bag up ‘til it’s full
Oooh, just get that
Swag

Look around everywhere you turn is heartache
It's everywhere that you go [look around]
You try everything you can to escape
The pain of life that you know [life that you know]
When all else fails and you long to be

So use it that's what it's for [that's what it's for]
Go inside, for your finest inspiration
Your dreams will open the door [open up the door]
It makes no difference if you're black or white
