Chad Mitchell Trio

The Chad Mitchell Trio – also known as the Mitchell Trio – were a North American vocal group who became known during the 1960s. They performed folk songs, some of which were traditionally passed down and some of their own compositions. Unlike many fellow folk music groups, none of the trio play… more »

Well, they called him Super Skier
As he sat around the sun-deck,
For he swore that he would never take a spill
When they finally took him down
They had to use three toboggans
To carry all the pieces down the hill

[Chorus]
He was comin' down that slope
Goin' ninety miles an hour
When he caught an edge of his ski
Well, his clothes, they were fast,
But the slopes, they were faster
That's the last of Super Skier we shall see
Well, he hollered, "What the hell!"
As he put 'em parallel
He figured there was nothing else to learn
(Oh, no...)
And as he started on his way,
He was shoutin', "Andele!",
Assuming that he'd never have to turn.
Well, he was slippin' down that slope
Goin' ninety miles an hour
When a mogul flipped him in the air
His jumping form was fine
Until he ran into that pine,
And two one-legged skiers left from there

[Chorus]

When he left that tree at last,
He was moving twice as fast
Both halves were skimming
Moguls like a feather
He said, "If I must be
A split personality,
How can I ever keep my knees together?"
One ski was headed east,
And the other headed west,
'Cause both of them, you see,
Were running freer
And folks up on Little Nell
Looked up, scared as hell,
Said, "It's a bird." "No, it's a
Plane." "It's Super Skier!"

[Chorus]

Now the moral of my story
Though my story's kinda gory
Is very simple even to a dope
You buy the fastest clothes you can,
Then talk skiing like a man,
But don't let people catch you on the slope!

[Chorus]

Well he was comin' down that slope
Goin' ninety miles an hour
When he caught an edge of his ski
Well, his clothes they were fast
But the slopes, they were faster
That's the last of Super Skier we shall see
That's the last of super skier we shall see!
