GWS GIANTS CLUB SONG LYRICS
Well, there is a big, big sound
From the west of the city
It is the sound of the mighty GIANTS
You feel the ground A-SHAKING
The other teams are shaking
In their boots for the GIANTS
We take the longest steps
And the highest jump
We are stronger than the rest
We are the Greater Western Sydney GIANTS
We are the largest and the best
And we will never surrender
We will fight to the end
We are bigger than the rest
It even has its own trending hashtag on Twitter with #bigbigsound.
The author of the gripping theme of the Giants revealed this week that while the club owns the rights to the song, he earns a cool $ 10 each time the Giants win a match – this year $ 160.
Harry Angus from the Australian band The Cat Empire said he & # 39; just tried to obey all these lines of footy songs & # 39; when writing the melody.
& # 39; So you have the middle brass choir, they made the men sing happily and the only thing I really did was put it in a small key. Immediately it became Russian, which I didn't realize at the time, & Angus said on channel 10.
& # 39; I just wrote this song, it was kind of fun. I submitted it and I don't think anyone else even submitted a song, & he said.
& # 39; But they liked my one, we ended up with that. The players seem to like it and I think it will only take a few years to sink into people's consciousness. Then it just fits a bit with the others because it sounds good. & # 39;

RICHMOND TIGERS CLUB SONG LYRICS
Oh we are from Tigerland
A fighting spirit
We are from Tigerland
In every weather you will see us with a grin
Head and seemed to be risking
If we stay behind, just leave it
We will fight and fight and win
Because we are from Tigerland
We never weaken before the last siren is gone
Like the tiger of yore
We are strong and courageous
Because we are from Tiger
Yellow and black
We are from Tigerland
The theme song of the Richmond Tiger is generally regarded as one of the best in the AFL, with regular surveys of the most popular club number.
The second to last line of the melody, the chorus of & # 39; Yellow and Black & # 39; is mainly embraced by fans.
Both clubs were only awarded 17,000 tickets, as was the tradition for a large AFL final.
However, with Richmond with 103,000 members and the Giants with 30,000, some fans voiced their anger about scrapping the limited tickets.
The fact that non-competing clubs are also allocated a large number of tickets was an annoyance for fans of Tigers.
The AFL grand finale starts on Saturday at 2.30 pm at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Richmond strives to win their 12th title, while GWS wants their first.
Richmond had endured drought in premierships for over 35 years before winning in the 2017 grand finale.
