Making music in the water

On odd days, the Masters workouts happen in the evening and not the morning at Northwest, so I'm on my own on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  I used to thrive on this opportunity, but to be honest I'm getting a little burned out with the pool and it takes some real effort to coming up with something creative so I don't get bored.  So today I decided to convert a song into a workout.

Each note represents which finger (1 = Thumb, 5 = pinky) should play the note if using the piano.  This is important for proper hand placement over the keys.  E should be played with the third finger, thus a 300 yard distance, and C should be played with the thumb which is a 100 yard distance and so on:

G = 500 pull
E = 300 free strong
D = 200 IM
C = 100 kick (fins optional)

Then I played this song:  E - D - C - D - E - E - E- D - D - D - E - G - G- E- D - C - D - E - E - E - E - D - D - E - D - C

@:30 ri between each note

Can you guess the song?

I was lacking in energy today and couldn't wait to finish the song!  But I got through it.  Total Distance = 6,600 yards total

If you can't figure out the song, here it is.
