Past player John Watts was responsible for the Club’s theme song. He got together with his team-mates during the 1963 season to pen the words.
It was sung most enthusiastically after the grand final that year!
We Are Geelong, tune: The Toreador March, from the George Bizet Opera, Carmen.
We are Geelong, the greatest team of all
We are Geelong; we’re always on the ball
We play the game as it should be played
At home or far away
Our banners fly high, from dawn to dark
Down at Kardinia Park
So! Stand up and fight, remember our tradition
Stand up and fight, it’s always our ambition
Throughout the game to fight with all our might
Because we’re the mighty blue and white
And when the ball is bounced, to the final bell
Stand up and fight like hell!
