The 19th century's answer to Stompin' Tom's "Hockey Song". I found this rousing sports ditty in the Toronto Public Library in the early 1980s, and used to sing it a lot at museum shows with the vocal group, Prof. Chalaupka's Celebrated Singing School. It can be dated to between 1872 and 1878 though its dedication to Governor General of the day, Lord Dufferin. It is set to a very old Scots/English melody called variously "The Rogue's March", "Tight Little Island", or (Poor Old) Robinson Crusoe". It's got a nice four-part chorus. I.B.
In the sound file linked below I sing it in G rather than D - because that's where I can manage it these days.
