Sa gitna nitong PAGLILIKOM1,
Ng pundong magiging syang BAON2;
Nitong dalawang HIPHOP Team3,
Para sila’y di tuluyang MABITIN4!
Aba, ito’y mantakin po ninyo,
Halos NOBENTA silang TAO5;
Sa pagkain na lang nila’t AUTO6,
Organizers nila’y tiyak na MALILITO!
Kaya sana’y maging GENEROSO,
Yaong mga pinadadalhan ng MEMO7;
At kanilang palawakin ang PANINGIN8,
BEST FRIENDS at KIN ay kanilang isama na RIN9!
Itong LEGIT STATUS Team noong 2015,
Natanghal din po namang tunay na RUNNER-UP DIN;
Sila’y naging pong PANGLIMA10,
Sa larangang ng 53 na bansang syang SUMAMA!
Sa totoo nga po pala LEGIT ay nag-SEGUNDO11,
Sa paligsahang VARSITY, lahat halos ay TINALO;
Si RACE MATIAS12 pa nga ang CAPTAIN12a,
Tunay na magaling mag-TRAIN13!
Yaon po namang ALLIANCE Team,
Aba eh! pambato din at DINGGIN;
TUMERSERA po ko sila sa 2016 na LABANAN,
Sa LAS VEGAS na kung saan maraming NAGPALIGSAHAN!
Kaya dapat ipanalangin nang marubdod nating DASAL14,
At kung pwede’y humingi ng EKSTRA po na PAN DE SAL15;
Dahil sa PHOENIX ARIZONA po pala’y,
Napakainit po na para pong HURNO16…NAKU PO INAY17!
Kaya marahil meron na tayong masasabing PARTIDA18,
Dahil mga banyagang Caucasian19, hirap sa INIT na magpahinga—
Talo ng ating mga PINAY na kung saan tayo’y SANAY20…
Mainit man o malamig, tiyak tayo’y WAWAGAYWAY21!
Kaya nga’t sa PANGALAN NG PAG-IBIG,22
Pag-ibig sa bayan at sa mga batang halos sa sayaw ay SAGIGILID!23
Ipamanhikan natin sa ating PANGINOONG DIYOS,
Na wala sanang masamang mangyari’t o kaya ay KUMABYOS24…
Kumpiyansa at pananampalataya ang DAPAT,
At sa inyong mga ASPIRASYON ay maging TAPAT;
Maging magiliw at galak sa inyong PAGSASAYAW…
At ang magandang kapalaran siguradong KAKAWAY!25
