...Well, here it is. My amateurish yet powerful song for Les Boys. I strongly suggest you sing along and learn the words quickly, because I predict that shortly there will be a crusade (probably led by ShootOut) to have the Canadiens organization play this song on the loudspeakers before every period (it was supposed to be before every turnover, but I was kind of hoping we'd end up playing the second verse). I also predict that there will be a crusade against this song (led by db...), but that will not deter me.
As some of you may know (English Habs Fan, Finnadien and the guy who posts from Russia come to mind), in most other sports there is a team cheer, which every team has. This chant exalts the greatness of the team, and the fans will sing it (in England the chant sometimes goes something like this: "Nigel Blorrington is a [bad word], so he can go and [bad word] his [bad word]!"). In other countries it is usually something like, "We are the Purple Knights, valiant we stand, with our swords bent and our knees hunched. We will gloriously [a very important anthem word] slay anyone who crosses our paths, in our search for the golden lock of hair from that fair maiden."). And in Russia it is, "Ochyn Liozhna Kartoffel, Khlopma Chelmbya Stolichnaya Vodka, Vremya Budya Nyet." I think you get the drift.
So my fellow fans, I have composed an original anthem which, with your help, will one day gloriously (I love using that word) strike fear into opponents hearts, much like the Tomahawk (or whatever it was called) worked for the Atlanta Braves in baseball, and the Strait Jacket worked for my great-grandfather in Siberia. So clap along, clear your throats, and here goes.
Sung to the tune of jingle bells (no Rabbi jokes please).
Chorus:OH, Montreal Montreal Montre-all the way,
Oh what fun it is to celebrate 25 cups.
OH, Montreal, Montreal Montre-all the way,
Oh what fun it is to see our rival teams throw up.
Michael Ryder's hair,
Glows from the red glare,
The goal light shines so GLORIOUSLY, and it's just his first year.
Quintal may be old,
He might be playing cold,
But before the year is done, the Stanley cup he'll hold.
200 pounds of brick,
Will facewash your entire team, yes he can be a *****.
Saku Koivu's small,
He's not exactly tall,
If he can fight Mike Ribeiro, he'll beat the Bulin Wall.
Darren Langdon has,
Been Newfoundlander class,,
He'll play just 17 seconds, but kick your enforcers @ss.
Richard Zednik's can,
Outskate you on sand,
He'll fake your defense 1 2 3, then score with just one hand.
Steve Begin ain't settlin',
And don't with him be meddlin',
Tonight he'll pound you hard, 'cause he forgot to take his Ritalin.
In Rangerland was dead,
He'll be sipping bubbly, wearing white, blue and red.
Boy will he get laid,
Not by Mike Ribeiro, but with Michelle Brunet. (from RDS. I think I got her name wrong).
The boss he said "no more,"
Jose listens to 'the boss,' so 'no more' will you score.
Mighty Craig Rivet,
Will show you how to play,
Let's just hope that he'll make up with Ribeiro and Dagenais.
Patrice Brisebois you,
Are my favourite player,
I can't wait 'til you hold the cup, and I know this doesn't rhyme.
Mike Ribeiro's wise,
Some say that he dives,
The moves he'll pull on your goalie will take you by surprise.
Sheldon Souray's wrist,
Sustained a nasty twist,
The good news is that he is back, with his iron fists.
Coach Claude Julien,
Will lead us once again,
To the Stanley Cup, just have some faith my friends.
In closing I realize that I was too harsh on Ribeiro in this song, and I just want to say that I am a very big fan of his and see a bright future in him if he bulks up and adds some muscle. He looks like a stick character out there. I'm sorry, but I guess he's the one I can poke the most fun at. Feel free to add your own, and if I come up with any more I will add them as well.
Lafleur tells me that he wrote a verse and he wants you all to hear it. Personally I think it may be a bit embarrassing for him, but I'll show it to you anyways... before I send him to the basement to bed.
We have got Lafleur,
He's stronger than before,
And if he could have any other occupation he would be a solDIER.
I think he's going through depression. Maybe he should try some of the stuff he advertises.
