CLUB SONG: (sung to the tune of It's A Grand Old Flag)
It's a grand old flag, it's a high flying flag,
It's the emblem for me and for you
It's the emblem of, the team we love,
The team of the green and the blue.
Every heart beats true, for the green and blue
As we sing this song to you, (what do we sing)
Should auld acquaintances be forgot
Keep your eye on the green and blue
