    Here's a good song for Jonny Walker. These lyrics are NOT MINE, they are taken from a song called "Boys on the Docks" by Dropkick Murphy's. I am not trying to steal their lyrics as my own...THEY wrote them, not me....so please, no lawsuits.

    "Say hey Jonny-boy the battle call
    United we stand, divided we fall
    Together we are what we can't be alone
    You came to the Metro, you made it your home."

    To the administrators of this site, if I am in copyright infringement, please erase this.

    To everyone else, you can find a sample of the song at www.dropkickmurphys.com.

    And the boys on the field needed Jon for sure
    when he came to the Metro, we opened the door
    he said, "man, I'll tell ya they don't like our kind,
    they can try all they like, but the shot will be mine"
    ---

    I'm not in love with the last line. The original is "man, I tell ya they don't like our kind, though is starts with our fists it must end with our minds." Which is cool but doesn't really fit.

    anyway, good song.

    You can never go wrong with the Dropkick Murphys...I don't know how I missed this one...good call Frieslander....and to add....

    And the boys from the swamp needed Jon for sure,
    When he came to the Swampland, we opened the door,
    We said John I'll tell ya, your one of a kind
    Though it starts with your fists it must end with your mind.

    That should have been credit to Heywood....a post snuck in on my while I was typing, and I didn't know it....

    You can also go with one of the main parts of the song...

    This man so humble, this man so brave,
    a legend to many, he fought to his grave,
    saved the Metro and fans from the hardship and horror
    of the opponents goals he gave us hope for tomorrow,
    say Johnny boy, this ones for you,
    with the strength of many and the courage of a few,
    to what do we owe this man whose fight for the Metro, he would give his life...

    You guys DO know that the Dropkick Murphys are Revs fans? Their bagpiper, Spicy McHaggis was a regular with the Rev Army in the fort, and would sometimes bring his pipes to the games.

    I figured as much. Doesn't bother me unless you guys are already singing the song.

    They Dropkicks are the bomb. Can't fault them for being from Boston. I feel bad for anyone that is.

    They've only got one song. I don't think that's it.

    I wanna thank frieslander and jgoal for supporting my tune....THANK YOU! I've been singing it in 101 and people seem to like it but don't know the words. I hope to see you guys at the Boro this Sunday and sing along with you. The other lyrics are GREAT!!!

    Frieslander, let's change your last line to:
    "And they can shoot all they want, but the save will be mine!"

    TomHIIl, thanks for the info. I figured that the Murphy's might have something to do with the Revs since they are also big Bruins fans. The words are just too good NOT to use for our netminder.

    I don't know the Bouncing Souls too well so you guys will have to work on that one.

    Thanks again....sing loud, sing proud!!

    the bouncing souls did a version of the "ole ole ole" song that sounds pretty good. it goes...

    boucing souls, no1 can beat us
    we drink beer and wear adidas
    anytime we get the itch
    we're off to find the proper pitch

    cant rememeber the rest off the top of my head.
    the whole song is about soccer...its almost too easy.

    oooooooOOOOOOOOO ole ole ole ole ole ole!

    we drink beer dont wear adidas
    everytime we take the pitch

    As I think Footix would agree, we don't have nearly enough Midnight Oil Metro songs.

    I'm going to work on a "Metro 'Stars of Warburton'" this weekend....

    Oh so that's you in the front singing that song.... I wanted to join ya but I didn;t know what the hell you were singing. Next year I can finally join you on this one.


    Oh BTW, will the new songs be added to the www.empiresc.com songs page?

    And any chance of some new mp3's of the ESC chants being uploaded to the site?

    Um, I'm sorry, but I'd have to agree. That Ole song by the B. Souls is kinda cheesy.

    As far as I know Jonny, he does not need a song to get him going. Maybe make a nice song for the defenders?
    Here in Chile they never sang for him and he did more than fine! Good luck anyway.
