Club Song & Playing Kit
You will find the lyrics to our famous victory song below.
This soulful tune is typically sung (or shouted) loudly, completely out of tune, and with several people mumbling the parts they don’t know. You recognise it as the club song of the Melbourne Demons Football Club in Australia.
It is heard regularly following victories on the field, however also occasionally following a particularly solid boat racing effort, during random club events, or anytime someone can get near a microphone connected to a loudspeaker
“It’s a grand old flag, it’s a high flying flag
It’s the emblem for you and for me
It’s the emblem of the team we love
The team of the red and the black (ack ack)
Every heart beats true for the red and the black
As we sing this song to you (what do we sing?)
Should old acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the red and the black (ack ack)”
The Lions launched a new playing kit in 2019; with a special 2021 kit to celebrate the club's 30th anniversary in the AFL London league. The regular kit features Clarence, the club mascot, donned in the club's striking red, yellow and black.
Our 2021 kit paid hommage to the original kit of the club - the iconic Essendon Bombers red stripe. Both kits are worn with black playing shorts and black socks.
