Club song change
The club song, The Pride of Brisbane Town, is sung to the tune of the French national anthem, La Marseillaise. The lyrics to the song are below.
We are the pride of Brisbane Town,
We wear maroon, blue and gold.
We will always fight for victory,
Like Fitzroy and Bears of old.
All for one and one for all,
We'll answer to the call.
We're the Lions, the Brisbane Lions,
We'll kick the winning score
You'll hear our mighty roar!
