For You Miss Jen Jen

What Miss Jen Jen asks for, Miss Jen Jen receives.
It’s the least I can do for a woman of such obvious taste, refinement and intelligence (as all Tiger supporters surely must be).

Here are the lyrics to the Richmond Tiger’s theme song. Sing it loud, sing it proud.

Oh we’re from Tiger land
A fighting fury
We’re from Tiger land
In any weather you’ll see us with a grin
Risking head and shin
If we’re behind then never mind
We’ll fight and fight and win
For we’re from Tiger land.
We never weaken till the final siren’s gone
Like the Tiger of old
We’re strong and we’re bold
For we’re from Tiger (yellow and black)
We’re from Tiger land.

  1. Yeah, OK. I know it’s poor form to comment on someone’s blog with a mocking parody of their club song, but EVERY SINGLE TIME I hear (or read) the Tigers theme song, I can’t help but think of a parody of it I read on a newsgroup ages ago, which is one of the few club song parodies that’s actually quite funny. Here ’tis (from memory; I might have screwed it up a bit):

    Oh we’re from Tiger land,
    We’re total wussies
    We’re from Tiger land,
    We’re complete pussies.
    We throw the match away
    Get spastic the next day
    Our Brownlow hopes get fuck-all votes
    I don’t know why they stay
    Oh we’re from Tiger land,
    We’re always trailing when the final siren sounds,
    Like the tiger of old,
    We keep getting rolled,
    Oh we’re from Tiger — WE GET SHELLACKED! — oh we’re from Tiger land…

    Anyway. I’ve got nothing against the tiges, I just happen to like that (particularly the last few lines).

  2. That is just the finest of dedications. Hurrah!! And thank you! 🙂

    Have I mentioned that I *love* the version that they play at the games. With those old horns and deep, tenor voices. Such fun!
