Staying alive was no jive
At second hands, moms bounced on old man
So then we moved to Shaolin land"

An amazing girl usually with brown hair and brown eyes. Most likely a cheerleader or dancer. She knows how to make people smile and can makes friends with anyone who gives her a chance. She secretly wants love and almost always has crush. She has an amazing personality and she can always be trusted with anything. She is also very loud and spontaneous along with humorous. She is normally short or average and has an amazing sense of style. But if you make her mad, she can go into full force bitch mode. She just wants to give someone her everything and be someones love. If you meet a Shaolin, don't let her go or you will miss her. A lot.
"Dang that girl back there is loud."
"Shes prob a Shaolin."

"Dang look at the amazing cheerleader!"
"I bet shes a Shaolin!"
