Some talk of cats and demons the tigers and the blues
For we don't get downhearted not even if we loose.
For all the teams that are in the west we are by far the bloody best we'll fight and fight with all our might for we are the champions of the west.
We make them talk of dragons Just as they talk of these
we'll play it hard we'll play it fair so let them all beware.
For all the teams that are in the west we are by far the bloody best we'll fight we'll fight with all our might we are the champions of the west.
