We are divided into two teams of two.
Sweating, laughing, and getting tanned
We get ready to play Bocce in the sand.
Nonno and Bia aim to win the game
but Jonathan and Nicholas aim the same.
Il pallino is cast with the toss of a hand
the battle begins of Bocce in the sand.
At first it's close, the excitement is growing
with each Bocce ball they are throwing.
The teams are determined to each withstand
the drama enfolding during Bocce in the sand.
But with skill, dexterity, and a little grace
Nonno and Bia soon take first place.
People watching thought it was grand
and cheered for the champions ... of Bocce in the sand.
