One of nine clubs from the city of Melbourne, the Western Bulldogs are proud of being from the Western suburbs – a theme which resounds through the clubs’ song lyrics.
It may be a short one, but it is a powerful encapsulation of the Bulldog spirit – feisty! When the Bulldogs need that little bit of extra something to power through for a win, they know they can rely on an extra man when the passionate crowds of the Etihad Stadium come together and sing the song.
Sung to the tune of ‘Sons Of The Sea’ – a traditional sea shanty, the theme song is called ‘Sons of West’ – a link to the location of the club. But do not worry if you cannot get to the ground come game day, head to Ladbrokes.com.au and Bet on the AFL to prove to the Bulldogs just how much you care by backing them with a victory – and you could see a win come your way too!
Sons of the west,
Red, white and blue,
We come out snarling, Bulldogs through and through.
Bulldogs bite and Bulldogs roar, we give our very best.
But you can’t beat the boys of the Bulldog breed, We’re the team of the mighty West!
