G'day all,
I know AFL clubs all have well known club songs, which are played before a match as the team enters the ground and after (for the winning team).
It would be good to see the NRL do this as well IMO as there's nothing better than singing your team song after a win.

But that's not what I came here to ask.

I'm interested in finding out the theme song for each NRL club.
What is your team's song, and what tune does it follow?

I'll move them into here as they come in.

BRISBANE BRONCOS

CANBERRA RAIDERS
We’re bad and mean,
the green machine
We hit 'em hard,
so they see green
We’re big and strong,
We’re fast and mean,
That’s why we’re called the Green Machine
We’re the bad and mean
Green Machine
Fearsome men from the ACT
Don’t try to stop these men in green
Cause we’ll hit ya, hit ya, hit ya and you’ll see green
Don’t want no red, don’t want no blue
Don’t want no white or orange too
There’s just one colour that’ll do
The fighting green of the Green Machine
We’re the bad and mean
Green Machine
Fearsome men from the ACT
Don’t try to stop these men in green
Cause we’ll hit ya, hit ya, hit ya and you’ll see green
We’re the bad and mean
Green machine
Fearsome men from the ACT
Don’t try to stop these men in green

A dogged football style.

No fear we’re Bulldogs.

And our voice will be heard
From Brookvale to the Cricket Ground
We'll all be marching beside you this year

MELBOURNE STORM
In the land we call Victoria
Where all good legends dwell
There's a champion Rugby League team
And we sing a bit as well
We're a rough tough bunch of bastards
And we're in a bit of form
No-one can defeat us
We're the mighty Melbourne Storm!
We really gave it to those (insert beaten club) boys
We really gave them hell
We would have scored a lot more points
But they rang that final bell
We're a rough tough bunch of bastards
And we're in a bit of form
No-one can defeat us
We're the mighty Melbourne Storm!

OR
We live to play, we play to win,
We try and try, we won't say die,
We won't give in.
We're number one, we'll hold the line,
We won't step back, we'll just attack,
Time after time.
We're lightning fast, we'll drive like rain,
We won't be beat, we won't retreat,
Ice in our veins.
We are the Storm from Melbourne Town,
We'll blow the others off the ground,
We are the Storm and we're number one.
We'll hit them hard, we'll take them down,
When this Storm hits, we'll blow the others,
Out of town.
We'll push them back, we'll make them pay,
Do what it takes, make no mistakes,
We'll make the play.
We'll show them tough, we'll show them speed,
The will to win is all we need,
We will succeed.
We are the Storm from Melbourne Town,
We'll blow the others off the ground,

NEW ZEALAND WARRIORS

NORTH QUEENSLAND COWBOYS
Up here, we do things differently
Part of our history I guess
Born tough, bred proud
To stand out from the crowd
The Cowboys are my team
And it's my dream
To see 'em at the top
The Cowboys are my team
And it's my dream
To see 'em at the top
Up here, we play seriously
Goes with the territory you know
Get's hot, get's wet,
Get's hard, but you bet
The Cowboys are my team
And it's my dream
To see 'em at the top
The Cowboys are my team
And it's my dream
To see 'em at the top

PARRAMATTA EELS
You'll hear a tremendous roar go up as parra takes the field
Just look at the blue and gold of the mighty eels
Their running out so big and strong and kicking up their heels
If you want to see how footballs played then come and see the eels
Quick goes the ball from man to man
Their strong in the tackle and sure with their hands
They play it hard and fast that's the only way to win
And when they score a try you will hear the fans all sing
Good on ya parra your brave and bold your mighty good and true blue and worth your weight in gold and when we see the other side slowly start to yield we raise our voices to the sky and glorify the eels!

PENRITH PANTHERS
Tension's running high
It shows on every face
The coach runs through the game plan
You're in the finals race
The first up tackle hurts you
And tomorrow you'll be sore
But the only thing that's on your mind
Is you're close enough to score.
Go the mighty Panthers
Let's put them to the test
Go the mighty mountain men
We're here to be the best
Go the mighty Panthers
There's a chance here to be great
Go the mighty Panthers, all the way.
Years of dedication
And the guts to see it through
There can only be one winner
And you dreamed it could be you
The crowd becomes a blur now
And the noise a muted roar
Penrith's broken through the line
There's another chance to score.
Go the mighty Panthers
Let's put them to the test
Go the mighty mountain men
We're here to be the best
Go the mighty Panthers
There's a chance here to be great
Go the mighty Panthers, all the way.
Years of dedication
And the guts to see it through
There can only be one winner
And you dreamed it could be you
So go the mighty Panthers
It's your turn to be great
Go the mighty Panthers...
Yes! Go the mighty Panthers all the way!

SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
South Sydney Marches On
When speaking of the champions
One stands above the rest
Of glories old and records proud
When often put to test
Of fine traditions, history
That others cannot best
They wear the red and green
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
South Sydney Marches On
They mauled the Balmain Tigers
Slew the Dragons from St. George
The Seagulls and the Mounties next
Were crushed with mighty force
They humbled Parramatta
And the Berries in due course
They wear the red and green
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
South Sydney Marches On
They plucked the Western Magpies
Slashed the Newtown bag of blue
The Eastern Suburbs rooster crowed
And then was conquered too
The greatest name in any game
Within South Sydney grew
They wear the red and green
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
South Sydney Marches On
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney

ST GEORGE-ILLAWARRA DRAGONS
We are the St George boys,
We had a win today,
We are the boys you know of,
Who show them how to play,
No matter where you be,
The red and white you'll see,
Now aren't we a wonderful credit,
To our locality!

SYDNEY ROOSTERS
Easts know how to play the game, they play it hard and fair,
Easts know how to win the game, they win more than their share.
They're great to see in action, these boys who show the way,
Put the Roosters on the field, they'll show you how to play.
Here come the Roosters, the best we've ever seen,
The red, white and bluesters, the Eastern Suburbs team.
"Easts to win" shout the cry that everybody knows,
If you play this football game beware the Roosters crow.

WESTS TIGERS
Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive
It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger
Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds 'til we take to the street
For we kill with the skill to survive
It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger
Risin' up, straight to the top
Have the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive
It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

I think most NRL clubs keep their team songs private, for just the players/coaching staff to sing after a win.
South Sydney have "Glory Glory to South Sydney" and Canberra have some "We are the mean Green Machine" song though.
Most clubs run out to a specific song:

Canterbury - Who let the Dogs Out
Wests - Eye of the Tiger
Manly - Eagle Rock
Melbourne - Thunderstruck
Penrith - Hell's Bells

I can't think of any others.

I find those AFL club songs (as well as the few League clubs that do the same) a bit corny TBH. Most sound like poor rip offs of some old low-grade marching band tunes. Just not my cup of tea. But that's just me of course...

Yes, I agree, some of them are corny, and most of them are to old tunes. But I believe it adds to the tribal rivalry between the clubs.
Just wondering though.
I knew Glory, glory to South Sydney, but not what comes after the first line.

This is the old version (see teams), but there is an updated version:

Sung to the tune of the Battle Hymn Of The Republic:

South Sydney Marches On....
CHORUS
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
Glory, Glory to South Sydney
South Sydney Marches On
When speaking of the champions
One stands above the rest
Of glories old and records proud

Of fine traditions, history

REPEAT CHORUS

Slew the Dragons from St. George
The Seagulls and the Mounties next
Were crushed with mighty force
They humbled Parramatta
And the Berries in due course
They wear the RED & GREEN
REPEAT CHORUS
They plucked the Western Magpies
Slashed the Newtown bag of blue
The Eastern Suburbs rooster crowed
And then was conquered too
The greatest name in any game
Within South Sydney grew
They wear the RED & GREEN
REPEAT CHORUS (twice)

This is the st george dragons one:

ST GEORGE DRAGONS TEAM SONG
Written in the late 1940s by Jack Mogridge (player 1928-29) and Owen Clarkson

We are the St George boys,
We had a win today,
We are the boys you know of,
Who show them how to play,
No matter where you be,
The red and white you'll see,
Now aren't we a wonderful credit,
To our locality!

Not sure if theres a new one since the merger.
Though everyone thinks the dragons song is when the saints go marching in.

Interestingly the Brisbane club Valleys club song is the same as Collingwood's. Have a copy of the 1979 GF which they won and they are singing the song, with the help of a young Wally Lewis.
