2nd May VIII Song 2007

We will rise (Carr/Kiely/Lewis/Lings/Mertes/Patterson/Preiss/Weaver/Yarr)

To the tune of I will Survive (Gloria Gaynor).

At first we were afraid
We were petrified
Kept thinking how could we bump
With our shit bow-side
But we spent so many outings
Thinking what are we doing wrong?
But we grew strong
And we learnt how to row along
We're at the back
In seventeenth place
Just paddled up to here
With that stupid look upon Sam's face
We should spin here at the lock
We should bump that stupid Caius
If we'd just tap down
And there's no more mutinees

Go on now row
That was the gun
We haven't got a cox
'cos she's stroking W1
Jenner's stepped in as a not so legal sub
We bumped back Caius 2
She joins the old buggers' club
And so we go
Our catch is gone
As long as we have love pair
The rhythm will stay on
We've never been this high
Since 1959
And we will rise
Will surely rise (oh)

Kept all the strength I had
In my shoulder guns
To get our catches in
Doing race pace double runs
I spent so many crew chats
Wishing Christian would shut up
I used to finish
But now I just rate high
Chasing Magdalene
Somebody new
Seb says we've got it in us
To hit a first division crew
And we spannered down the reach
Not making any ground
And with a new race plan
We'll get them second time around

Go on now row
That was the gun
We went off sprinting
And by first post they were done
Fitz's blades campaign was cruelly denied
They thought we'd crumble
But we didn't even stride
And so we go
Our catch is gone
As long as we have meat pair
We'll get the power on
We've never been this high
Since 1959
And we will rise
Will surely rise (oh)

Go on now row
That was the gun
Today we're chasing Christ's
It hurts, it won't be fun
We hit them as we came around through the gut
Power through the legs
Finish strong, finish high
And so we go
Our catch is gone
As long as we have bow pair
The full eight will row on
We've never been this high
Since 1959
And we will rise
Will surely rise
Will surely rise
