"The Path of the Lightning Bolt"

Voiceover

Yet another sweltering day for the Florida Gators in this 1965 season. The players are struggling in the punishing heat.  
Mission control, ready for launch. 
2006 finals MVP. 
 
(Lyrics) Morning, it’s another pure grey morning 
Don’t know what the day is holding 
When I get uptight 
And I walk right into the path of a lightning bolt 
Everyone I see just wants to walk with gritted teeth 
But when I see the signs I jump on that lightning bolt 
They say you gotta tow the line they want the water not the wine 
But when I see the signs I jump on that lightning bolt
