We're The Spirit

With the blessings of the estate of Ken Walther, Ken's great-great-grandson, Dan Walther '71, a music major and a session drummer, penned the lyrics of Leafa College's official fight song as part of a college-wide initiative to establish school spirit and camaraderie ahead of the college officially being the first Australia-based member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association. The original version of the  West Coast Football Club's song was used as the melody for the fight song, which was approved by the Leafa College Associated Students (LeafaCAS) in Dec. 2071.


In every town, from coast to coast,
You'll see us, far and near.
We bleed the green and gold and white.
The Leafa Spirit's here.

We're The Spirit, the Leafa Spirit,
And we're here to show you why
We're a big team, living the big dream.
We're The Spirit! We're on a high!

We play the game with passion
And we play it very well.
And with a bit of Leafa magic,
Hear our Tower's Victory Bells!

We're The Spirit, the Leafa Spirit,
And we're here to show you why
We're a big team, living the big dream.
We're The Spirit! We're on a high!

So watch out, all you Yankees
Across the ocean, from the East.
Cause you'll get more than just a cracking game.
You'll get a Leafa Spirit feast!

Oi oi oi!

We're The Spirit, the Leafa Spirit,
And we're here to show you why
We're a big team, living the big dream.
We're The Spirit! We're on a high!
We're a big team, living the big dream.
We're The Spirit! We're on a high!
We're The Spirit! We're on a high!

-D. Walther '71
