This is absolutely brilliant, and what's more it's an original South Melbourne Hellas creation (yes, yes, with a touch of AC/DC, too), forged in the roaring fires of smfcboard, during a dark era where every second thread was a stupid popularity game, created by people whose main goal was to add to their already overinflated post counts. I wish I could take the credit for this, but alas I cannot, as it is the work of a great man who goes under the pseudonymn Conya. Enjoy.

In the beginning
Back in 1959
Man didn't know about a soccer show
And all that jive
The white man had Matthews
The black man had Pele
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Marmaras had the news, he said

Let there be Red, and there was Red
Let there be White, and there was White
Let there be Souvlaki, there was Souvlaki
Let there be Fans, there was Fans, ah
Let there be SOUTH

And it came to pass
That Soccer was born
All across the land every soccer fan
Was ripping up a flare
And the trumpet man got famous
The souvlaki man got rich
And in every ground there was a superstar
With a seven year itch
There was fifteen million juniors
Learnin' how to play
And you could hear Lefteri's trumpet
And this is what they had to say

Let there be Blue, White, drums, 'n Trumpet, ah
Let there be SOUTH

One night in a club called the Hindmarsh
There was a 42 decibel CC band
And the feeling was good
And the chanting was loud
And the leader turned and he said to the crowd

Let there be SOUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A few notes on comments.

We've had a lot of fun over the years with my freewheeling comments policy, but all good things must come to an end. Therefore I will no longer be approving comments that contain personal abuse of any sort.

Still, if your post doesn't get approved straight away, it's probably because I haven't seen it yet.
