Club Song

To Drysdale Club song is almost identical to the Hawthorn theme song (to the tune of Yankee Doodle Dandy), but for inserting the word Drysdale, AND the word ‘counts’ in place of ‘talks’ after ‘team work is the thing that …..”.  No one is sure why this is the case as ‘talks’ certainly rhymes better, but over the years our boys have added singing ’’ with gusto after ‘counts’ and it is now firmly embedded into our club culture.


We’re a happy team at Drysdale
We’re the Mighty Fighting Hawks.
We love our Club, and we play to win,
Riding the bumps with a grin (at Drysdale).
Come what may, you’ll find us striving
Team work is the thing that counts 4,3,2,1,
One for all and all for one’s the way we play at Drysdale.
We are the Mighty Fighting Hawks.
