VIDEO: The Atlanta Falcons Have A Fight Song, Remember?

For whatever reason the Atlanta Falcons have the sports world’s most amazing all-time songs-to-wins ratio. I tried to catalog a few of the mainstream songs about the Falcons here, which happened before the NFL Play 60 commercial added this one to our jukebox, which was in turn followed by an outburst of YouTube raps about them Dirty Birds.

(Listing a handful of homemade rap songs about the Falcons would do a great disservice to the scads of material out there, but we do take efforts to highlight ones which feature lyrics that are very, very aware of the team’s blandness, such as the two at that last link and this one, which features a line celebrating Mike Mularkey’s cautious red zone play.)

But have you ever heard the team’s original, legit, TWO LA GIT, TWO LA GIT TO QUIT HEY official fight song from back in the A?

It’s not quite “If I had a daughter, sir, I’d dress her in white and gold,” but it thumps along merrily and the drummer gets some. Sang along:

↵

Fly high, Falcons, straight down the field
↵Fly high, Falcons, never to yield
↵Red and silver is Atlanta’s team
↵When the game is over you will reign supreme
↵Come on and fly high, Falcons, soar in the sky
↵You’re the football elite
↵Flying higher, higher, high, fly high
↵Atlanta Falcons can’t be beat
↵Come on and fly high, Falcons, soar in the sky
↵You’re the football elite
↵Flying higher, higher, high, fly high
↵Atlanta Falcons can’t be beat
