Original:
Say hey johnny boy, the battle call
United we stand, divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone
We came to this country you made it our home

New:
We all cheer for the blue, white and Gold
The day we give up, is the day we are sold
Together forever, we never surrender
We came to this place we made it our home


Suggestions? I couldn't think of anything for the last line.
Fuimos. Bebimos. Chingamos.

This is a great song for a chant and I'm surprised it hasn't been tried before. I think the last two lines both need work. Try and find something in which the last words of both lines rhyme.

I was thinking:

We all bleed for the blue, white and gold
we wont stop when we're gray and old
we never surrender, keep singing our songs
At the HDC is where we belong

still the last lines are a little eh
Fuimos. Bebimos. Chingamos.

here's a link to a weird youtube video set to the tune of the song:

boys on the docks

(not the actual full song, but you get the gist of the chorus')

You're a little late to the party, so to speak.

We tried it before a few years back. This being LARS, we can try again. The worst that can happen is it won't work.

The more I think about it, LARS chants/songs are like a network pitch room during the lead up to pilot season. Lots of shit thrown at the wall and most of it just remains that. Shit. But sometimes, the shit hits the fan and really flies.

I need a drink.

OK... ETZ emailed me the song and it's right here for you to listen.

However, I propose keeping as close to the original except for two words:

Say hey Galaxy, the battle call
united we stand, divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone
We came to this city, you made it our home

It'll be an extreme uphill battle, but I'm willing to start it and lead it if others will join in. Hell, I'm still trying to make A FEW GOOD MEN a staple of LARS to some medium success.

RTB is right... the worst that happens is nothing happens. We'll try it....

Fuimos. Bebimos. Chingamos.

Sounds good. I'll try to learn it.

TM - The challenge with join us in a song are the long ends to each line and the pauses. Each LARS member measures the length of the last word and the length of the pause differently.

Join us in a sooooong. [pause]
We shall rise and siiiiing. [pause]

and so on....

The next challenge is learning lyrics. :(
