Couldn’t Go For Collingwood

Words: Stuart Macarthur-Greg Champion
Tune: still call Australia home

I’ve seen the Lions win three in a row
Seen two for the West Coast and two to the Crows
And although a Victorian flag would be good
I couldn’t go for Collingwood

I backed St Kilda when they played the Crows
I prayed for the Cats to demolish West Coast
and although I have been through that dark neighbourhood
I couldn’t go for Collingwood

All the sons and daughters of Victoria
Would consider a local flag great
But with Micky and Eddie and Joffa’s gold coat
Just let it go interstate

It’s not that I wanted old Port to get up
Or Sydney or Brisbane to hoik up the Cup
I just realize what I had always understood
I couldn’t go for Collingwood
