    Hmmm. I never knew the lyrics to the Notre Dame march. And so I never realised how much of the lyrics we stole when we changed it to the Swans anthem!

    A LITTLE originality would be nice....

    "Oh, everything's stolen nowadays. The fax machine is just a waffle iron with a phone attached" --Grampa Simpson

    Most AFL club songs are stolen. Geelong's comes from the opera Carmen, Carlton's is an old old tune called Lily of Laguna, the Bombers used "Keep Your Sunny Side Up", and the Lions' is a rip-off of the French national anthem!

    On the other hand, clubs with 'original songs' include West Coast, Freo and Port. Hmm.

    And then there's Richmond's club song.
    I support two teams: the SYDNEY SWANS and anyone who beats the West Coast Eagles... except Collingwood, Essendon, Carlton, Richmond, Hawthorn, St. Kilda, North Melbourne, Geelong, Melbourne, Western Bulldogs, Adelaide, Port Adelaide, Brisbane and Fremantle.
    Ok then, I only support one team: The SYDNEY SWANS!!!!!

    Richmond's is based on the song "Row Row Row" - and old Music Hall tune. Young whippersnappers might know it from the movie "Oh! What A lovely War".

    Young Johny Jones he had a cute little boat
    And all the girlies he would take for a float.
    He had girlies on the shore,
    Sweet little peaches by the score-
    But master Johny was a wis'un, you know,
    His steady girl was Flo
    And every Sunday afternoon
    She'd jump in his boat
    And they would spoon

    And then he'd row, row, row
    Way up the river he would row, row, row
    A hug he'd give her
    Then he'd kiss her now and then
    She would tell him when,
    They'd fool around and fool around
    And then they'd kiss again.
    And then he'd row, row, row
    A little further he would go, oh, oh, oh,
    Then he'd drop both his oars
    Take a few more encores,
    And then he'd row, row, row.

    Lyrics By William Jerome, Music By James Monaco

    Ah, no matter what, the tune's always inspirational.

    The tune is, obviously. And some of the lyrics will always be. But I had no idea the lyrics were so close to the original!

    I thought that WAS the point of your earlier post!

    It was. But Xie Shan seemed to think I was talking about the tune being borrowed or something.
