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).
