First released on the album Stand Back Australia

At the Punt Road end of the Southern Stand
they raise their arms and cheer
the Tiger faithful will persist
until it is their year

they don’t mind how long they wait
they’ll be ready to celebrate
love ’em or not it’s plain there’s a lot
of people who care about Richmond

To the London Tavern from Bridge Road
it’s a stroll down Lennox Street
when you wander round this Richmond Town
who know what ya might meet

they come from every side of the tracks
but they’re unified in the Gold Black
love ’em or not it’s plain there’s a lot
of people who care about Richmond

Well I don’t know when their time will come
but it surely won’t be long
’till we hear that Tiger army sing
that famous Gold Black song

and their loyalty will be repaid
one fine September Saturday
love ’em or not it’s plain there’s a lot
of people who care about Richmond

And you can see ’em on your TV
and they look like you and me
patiently awaiting
their date with history
love ’em or not it’s plain there’s a lot
of people who care about Richmond
