go to great lengths

When you want to be strong

But just don’t know how

Get skirt thing on

Be proud, take a bow


Look within yourself

Stand tall like a tower

You’ll sudden realize

You’ve always had the power


Whether senior or teen

Big, medium or small

You have the skirt thing

So give it your all!


Band together to create

A universal strength

You’ll see your power

When you go to great lengths
