The gym, filled with fans
Cheering and rooting for their team to win
The crowd erupts and the atmosphere explodes
As the players run out on the court
All excited and nervous, ready to play
The ball is up and the game is on
Your team scores and the tone is set
But the game is not over yet
That's the beauty of basketball
The game can change so fast
One minute you're up by 6
And the next you're falling behind
It's a game of runs and hard work
And whoever wins that battle will win the game
It's a matter of heart and who wants it the most
So when your team walks off the court
Make some noise cuz they gave it their all
No matter what the outcome
Win or lose
Championship or no championship
