Oh we’re from Tigerland
A fighting fury we’re from Tigerland
In any weather you will see us with a grin, Risking head and shin
If we’re behind, then never mind we’ll fight and fight and win
Oh where from Tigerland
We never weaken til the final sirens gone
Like the tiger of old, we’re strong and we’re bold
Oh we’re from Tiger
-YELLOW AND BLACK-
We’re from Tigerland
