Sabres Fight Song: an Awesome Reader Submission

Buffalo74 has touched on the need for the Sabres to create a fight song, and also on some of the very, very grassroots efforts by fans who are trying to create their own.

’74 reader, Sarah, put forth possibly the best suggestion to date (bang on the link and scroll down to the comments section).  The song in mind is without question raised to the rafters in terms of wicked NHL awesomeness.  So, without further ado:

I know, I know.  The price tag – if there even is one – for the rights to use a Led Zeppelin song would be astronomical.  And altering the lyrics of a Zep tune is akin to heresy.

Terry Pegula is loaded, however; fans can hope he might get on board with this idea.

I mean, c’mon – imagine the scene of thousands of die-hard Sabres fans descending upon a game against the Lightning in Tampa Bay all screaming the intro:

Ahh aaa aaaaaaaaa-AHH!!!  Ahh aaa aaaaaaa-AHH!!!

That would be enough to send more than a few women, children, and men running to the hills.  (Well, at least get them trying to find a hill to run to.  Tampa coastal areas are pretty low-lying.)

Really, the song is almost pre-written for a hockey fight song.

“We come from the land of ice and snow.”  Keeper line.

“Hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new land, to fight the horde, sing and cry: Valhalla, I am coming!”  (Insert “Lord Stanley” for “Valhalla.”)

Weigh in, folks, and keep the suggestions comin’!

Go Sabres.

    I *loved* the idea and that song gets me pumped. So much so that I had to take a stab at some lyrics for it. It’s a first draft and could probably use some help here and there. Cheesy, yes, but sing it to the tune and I think it kinda works.
    —–

    We come from the land of the ice and snow,
    Where the Sabres are rockin Buffalo.

    The wallet of Pegula, will take this team to new heights
    The blue and gold, go Buffalo, Lord Stanley I am coming!

    And on we skate, we won’t give up, we’re gonna win the Stanley Cup

    Our goalie’s gonna stop, all those pucks you’re shooting,
    His quick glove can win the game, the Sabres will be cruising

    [that last line could be… “and your team will be losing” or “you’re in for a bruising” (ugh)]

    “In for a bruising.”

    That, my friend, is pristine.
