Club Song

Sung to the tune of the Richmond’s Club song

 

 

Oh we’re from Tigerland

A fighting fury we’re from Tigerland

In any weather you will see us with a grin

Risking head and skin

If we’re behind

we’ll never mind

we’ll fight and fight and win

oh where from Tigerland

we never weaken til the final siren goes

like the tigers of old

we’re strong and we’re bold

oh we’re from tiger Yellow and Black

oh we’re from Tigerland
