Five, six, seven, eight,
Point your toes, and keep your hips straight.
All the competition puts us to the test,
But teamwork and dedication are what makes us the best.
Practice makes perfect, and smile while you dance,
This is what made us state and national champs.
The team’s been my life, and I’ve had so much fun,
I can’t believe it’s almost over, I don’t want to be done.
These days on the team have been the best yet,
I’ve made so many memories that I will never forget.
I’ve gained sixty-one sisters, a second mom, and many best friends,
They’ll always be here for me until the end.
You may ask how I’ll leave them, but I won’t, you see,
Because Once a Carmie, Always a Carmie- forever I’ll be.
