club song

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 that we love.
The team of the red and the blue!
Every heart beats true
For the red and the blue,
And we sing this song to you!
Should old acquainted be forgot,
Keep your eye on the red and the blue!


The only club song that doesn't include the name of the club.
