As we walk through the door, our hair up in curls,
We watch some of the girls practice their flips and twirls.
It's our turn to practice, we run through everything once or twice;
All stunts are solid, the routine looks nice.
Our team is called, it's time to go on,
Our minds go blank, the routine is gone.
The crowd goes wild as we spirit out,
Everyone is nervous without a doubt.
The music starts, the routine comes back,
This is the real thing, no time to slack.
Formation runs and motion drills, we've all come to hate,
Really paid off, 'cause we're looking great.
We've practiced for hours to look good for three minutes,
We give it our all right up to the finish.
First place or last, we've done our best.
Now it's time to cheer for the rest!
A CHEERLEADER WITHIN US
It's the glimmer of hope when times are tough;
It's a bit more patience when we've had enough.
It's that thoughtful smile when one's desperately needed,
It's that extra push, a reason why we've succeeded.
This part of our personality which never fails to strive,
Is the creator of our goals and the source of our drive.
We are enthused about life, optimistic about what's to be,
Because the cheerleader inside looks for the best of life you see.
It's the strong support upon which you stand,
It emerges as a friend to lend you a hand.
Where does this light come from, where does the ray start?
It shines in your mind, but ignites in your heart.
The confidence to try, the will to believe,
The acceptance of failure and the way to achieve.
It's very close by, its something we trust.
It's the fighter inside, it's the *\o/* Cheerleader within us!
Together Everyone Achieves More!
Cheerleading is a rivalry, the competition makes you strong,
it's sharing secrets and tears, learning to get along
Cheerleading is that ongoing drive to be the very best,
it is patience, perseverance, and very little rest.
Cheerleading is having poise and charm with every word you say,
it is total dedication twenty-four hours a day!
It is always being ready with encouragement and a smile,
cheerleading is your chance to express your individual style!
Cheerleading is reaching out to comfort a sister who is sad,
it is also defending each other in good times and the bad.
Cheerleaders are always there when someone asks for help,
they encourage, teach, lean and learn for helping is the key for success!
Cheerleading is a talent to be able to shine on cue,
it is hiding the pain and anguish that if only half the people knew!
Cheerleaders, after all, are real people that sometimes get down,
but when they're in the spotlight, you'll never see them frown.
Cheerleaders are actresses always ready to go,
that is why it's important for all the world to know...
Not every girl can be a cheerleader, it takes a special kind of girl,
one who knows what it takes, strives for more and gives her all
24 hours a day/7days a week!
