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.

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!
