CHEER the game!
WORK the crowd!
BUILD the spirit!

Cheerleading is a rivalry, the competition makes you strong,
It is 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 defending each other in good times and the bad

Cheerleaders are always there when someone asks,
They treasure the present moment and let go of the past

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, they must never put on a 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
Cheerleaders are full of life and a little bit out of their mind.

Cheerleading is a way of life, shared by a chosen few,
It is working as a unit in everything you do.

We stand together in support of our team
united, committed, one motive one dream.


What we do is different unlike all the rest,
but somehow the same when we all try our best.

We don't use a bat, a ball, or a net,
just determination, and muscle, endurance, and sweat.


We cheer because we love the thrill of the game,
to motivate the crowd-nothing else is the same.

So don't call us ditzy, and don't call us cute,
lose the misconceptions, seek out the truth.


Our spirit is endless, our hearts filled with pride,
please look past the stereotype and see the athlete inside.

Athlete by nature, cheerleader by choice!

We finally learned
What life is all about...

The secret of success
Comes hard....no doubt!

We trained, we sweated
We ached, we cried...

And found out we got better
Each time we tried!

We were pushed, yelled at
Preached at, too....

But the more that this happened,
the more that we grew!

"You can be anything
you want to be!"

This voice kept shouting out to us.

Yet who can we blame for such a daring approach?

That General....
That Counselor....
That Friend I call
MY COACH!

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 cheerleader within us.

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 know we've done our best,
Now it's time to cheer for the rest.
