"Gone Up For Leafa" is the second song written by Ulysses "Uptown" Fong Wang Chung, a schoolboy and son of a former Islamist terrorist and buxom maneater that also plays as an offensive lineman for his club side. This song was co-written by the great-grandson of Cold Chisel's Ian Moss, Andrew Moss, who also goes by the name Andy Warhammer. The song debuted at Homecoming 2077 in September 2077 and was adopted by the Leafa College Spirit Pep Band and the LeafaCAS as an official fight song on that day. The song is set to the tune of "Bow River" by Cold Chisel.


"Gonna put on my colours.
Put on my green and gold.
Feel that Spirit lift me to my feet again.
I don't want to see your crying eyes.
I'll be home soon, and I'll tell you why.
Just so you know, I've gone up for Leafa again.

You can lift me higher, aim me for the stars
And I will bring another trophy to the Leafa Town.
Finding peace of mind, of heart and might
And the dreams that I shared will make you come around.
I'm going for the glory, gonna be number one,
I won't let anyone take my pride away from me.
And when it's time for action, we will light the fire,
And gone up for Leafa is where I wanna be.

Gonna put on my colours.
Put on my green and gold.
Feel that Spirit lift me to my feet again.
I don't want to see your crying eyes.
I just want to see your smile against the Southern Skies
Until my dying day.
I don't want be another American
Cause I've always been Australian.
I've had enough, gone up for Leafa again.
Just so you know, I've gone up for Leafa again.

It's where I get my knowledge, my university days.
Under the Tower I sing this victory song.
So over down in Canberra, you will find me there,
I won't leave it to fate, I won't be dead and gone!

Gonna put on my colours.
Put on my green and gold.
Feel that Spirit lift me to my feet again.
I don't want to see your crying eyes.
I just want to see your smile against the Southern Skies
Until my dying day.
I don't want be another American
Cause I've always been Australian.
I've had enough, gone up for Leafa again.

Running up the score,
They're breaking down the door.
Gonna heave away. We'll be back for more!
We are from Leafa, and every game is a war.
Touchdown offence, hit 'em defence!
This is where my life and the fun never ends.
Just so you know, I've gone up for Leafa again.
Just so you know, I've gone up for Leafa again.

Just so you know, I've Gone
Up For Leafa
Again!"
