National Team Theme Song.Why Not

I notice that Canada does not have theme song for its NATIONAL TEAM. other countries have.Like the Danes "We are Danish Red & White and we are Dynamite". I know the English always seem to have a different one. I remember before the 1990 World Cup, New Order,wrote one, and I think groups Like Oasis,Supergrass,Blur,Pulp, and Ocean Color Scene, have done some sort of compalation before a big tournament. wHY NOT Canada, maybe someone make up some words,some lyrics, get Daniel Lanios, to produce it, and have someone like Arcade Fire, The Hip, Broken Social Scene,or Metric, to perfom it.

P.S. The female lead singer for Metric is Hot. That should get people interested.

The Littlest Hobo is an excellent suggestion. There is probably a (marginally) better one, but that is damn-near perfect.

Now all you young bucks out there know that there are two theme songs for The Littlest Hobo. Us old dudes can remember the original. I'm not sure I like the idea of having the words "Maybe tomorrow" associated with my national team. Hopeful, yet elusive. :)

For us "old" dudes this is the theme from the 60's B&W version.

Traveling around from town to town

Sometimes I think I'll settle down

But I know I'd hunger to be free

Rovin' is the only life for me.

A-driftin'

The world is my friend

I'm travelin' - along the road without end.

*******************************************************

Maybe Tomorrow (Littlest Hobo) New version

Terry Bush

There's a voice that keeps on calling me

down the road, that's where i'll always be.

every stop i make, i make a new friend,

can't stay for long, just turn around and i'm gone again

Maybe tomorrow, i'll want to settle down,

until tomorrow, i'll just keep moving on.

Down this road that never seems to end,

where new adventure lies just around the bend.

so if you want to drive me for a while,

just grab your hat, come travel light, that's hobo style.

Maybe tomorrow i'll want to settle down,

until tomorrow, the whole world is my home.

So if you want to join me for a while,

just grab your hat, come travel light, that's hobo style

Maybe tomorrow, i'll want to settle down,

until tomorrow, i'll just keep moving on.

Maybe tomorrow, i'll want to settle down,

until tomorrow, i'll just keep moving on.

There's a world that's waiting to unfold,

a brand new tale no-one has ever told.

we've journeyed far far and know it wont be long;

we're almost there, and we've paid our fare with our hobo song.

Maybe tomorrow, i'll want to settle down,

until tomorrow, i'll just keep moving on.

So if you want to join me for a while,

just grab your hat, come travel light, that's hobo style.

Maybe tomorrow, i'll find what i call home, until tomorrow, you know i'm free

Has to be something by Stompin' Tom Connors - maybe with altered lyrics to include all the anti-CSA'ers and anti-Yallop'ers.

Sudbury Saturday Night - The girls are out to bingo and the boys are gettin' stinko, we think no more of a domestic league on a Canada Saturday Night!

Handyman Blues - I got the I-don't-know-how-to-fix-the-CSA blues, I'm a handyman to have around when you're drinkin' booze

Zakuska Polka - Pozniak Polka, he's very fine, sometimes he dance, sometimes he dine

The Moon Man Newfie - You might think this is goofy, but the CSA needs a COO that's a Newfie

Margo's Cargo - Yallop's got no hope, Yallop's got no hope, Pipe has got no clue by, and Yallop's got no hope

Red River Jane - Lenarduzzi was too tame, that was his name, 69 rip-off lane, I must've been insane to cheer his game, but crazy fools have go to learn, the CSA will always find someone else to blame, and I blew my mind and my money in vain, and I blew my past on a fast Lenarduzzi game

I'd go on, but I gotta get some work done and I'm sure someone else can come up with better lyrics to;

Bud the Spud

To It and At It

Luke's Guitar

Damn Good Song For a Miner

Okanagan Okee

I remember this topic from a while back (though I think it pertained to having a Voyageurs song. I suggested using "The Maple Leaf Forever" as the basis for the tune.

I'm trying to remember the words off the top of my head...

"In day of yore, from Canada's shore,

scores of Voyageurs set sail.

To squeeze a lass and raise a glass,

for Canada's fair domain.

So here it flies, our boast our pride,

We join in voice together.

To sing as one with devotion,

The Maple Leaf Forever.

(Chorus)

The Maple Leaf, our emblem dear.

The Maple Leaf Forever.

May heaven bless and save out team.

The Maple Leaf Forever.

or something like that....:)
