G athering my nerves, I start upon the floor
Y earning for the biggest prize and the highest score
M y legs have turned to jelly but I start off really well
N anna's in the crowd and I hear her start to yell
A flip and a turn, a jump and a hop, a cartwheel and a
S urely if I keep this up, I have a chance to win
T he crowd are really cheering now, just like a lion's
I perfectly land the final flip, I can't give anymore
C rying with delight, all perfect tens start to unfold
S uddenly, I wake up as I'm presented with the gold!
