Laini Daigle

Hit The Matt

Tumble Fast
Jump High
From the toss
I own the sky

All eyes on us
Watch every move
The little girls stare
They want to be like you

Rushing excitement
All around
Perfect Routine
Right here, Right now

In this moment
Crowds cheer for me
My girls, My sisters, My family
My team

Piercing Movements
Striking Dance
Pull your scorpion
Now's your chance

Show those boys
The athletes we are
Throw your full
No mistakes so far

Prove to them
This is a sport
We hit the matt
This is our court.
