Basketball

Basketball is for us all,
Whether you are big or small,
Short or tall,
Basketball is for us all.

Take a turn and bounce that ball,
See how much fun can be had by all.
Run, run, run don't you stall,
Basketball is for us all.

Jump high toward the sky,
Then throw that ball
And let it fly
It can be seen by all.
Reaching the hoop
You can let out a whoop.
Basketball is for us all.

Sitting on the sidelines is fine,
Hold up that sign.
Just remember to cheer,
For all to hear,
And never fear,
We're standing tall.
Basketball is for us all.

The clock is ticking down,
Don't frown.
Keep playing hard,
Yard by yard.
Don't fall!
Basketball is for us all.

Win or lose,
You don't get to choose.
Just keep your focus,
Don't cause a ruckus.
Keep standing tall.
Basketball is for us all.

This game is over, time to go.
Now you move slow,
But your pride is high
As you let out a sigh,
Practice with that ball,
Because, basketball is for us all!
