‘WE ALL BLEED BLUE’ NSW ANTHEM LYRICS

It was 40 years ago today

On a patch of hallowed grass

Artie took a swipe at Mick

And sat him on his arse

From Tommy down to our mate Boyd

It’s been a journey long

We bring our humble song to you

So you can sing along

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue

Vegans vegetarians and bacon lovers too

Now beware of slippery cane toads

Or they’ll slip in for a try

Smith or Thurston or Billy the Kid

They could make a Blatchy cry

Well it wasn’t all that long ago

The blue skies turned maroon

No matter how well our team played

Our hopes and dreams seemed doomed

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue

Butchers and accountants

And keepers at the zoo

Then one day a chap named Freddy

He’d learned a thing or two

It’s not for me or the team we play

But the fans that bleed for you

And from brick veneers and fibro shacks

From Bondi Beach to Bourke and back

Freddy heard a distant sound

That grew and grew ’til it shook the ground

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue

Everywhere across our state

We’re all bleedin’ blue

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue

Everywhere across our state

We’re all bleedin’ blue

We all bleed blue

We all bleed blue
