Theme Song[edit]

We're a happy team at Blackburn,

We're the Mighty Fighting 'Burns, ( 2,3,4 ).

We love our club and we play to win,

Riding the bumps with a grin, at Blackburn.

Come what may you'll find us striving,

Teamwork is the thing that counts ( 2,3,4)

All for one and one for all,

The way we play at Blackburn,

We are the Mighty Fighting 'Burns.

*(Sung to the tune of ''The Yankee Doodle Boy'', and similar to AFL club Hawthorn).
