Lyrics

We are the boys from Carrum Downs
We wear the colours green and gold
We will always fight for victory
We will always see it through
Win or lose, we do or die
In defeat, we always try
Carrum Downs, Carrum Downs
The Club we hold so dear
Premiers we’ll be this year!

Tune

Sung to the same tune used by the Brisbane Lions in the AFL, (the old Fitzroy anthem)
This is the tune of “La Marseillaise” (Lar Mar-say-ayz) – the French National Anthem, written in 1792 by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle.
