Lycrics to Lactic Acid

Lactic acid, creatine
We are fine tuned athletes like German machines
We party all night
We spend lots of euros
And swim the next day like Hogan's Heroes
Cardio max on the pri-inc
We laugh at pain just like Colonel Klink
Bratwurst, Schnitzel, saucer kraut
Who is the team that works like on out...
We got Cytomax, coffee and nugget ties
Girls burning holes between these thighs
