We're a happy team at Hawthorn
We're the Mighty Fighting Hawks.
We love our Club, and we play to win,
Riding the bumps with a grin (at Hawthorn).
Come what may, you'll find us striving
Team work is the thing that talks,
One for all and all for one
Is the way we play at Hawthorn.
We are the Mighty Fighting Hawks.


Background of song

In 1956, club solicitor Chick Lander worked with Australian singer-songwriter Jack O’Hagan to come up with ‘The Mighty Fighting Hawks’.

The song is sung to the tune of ‘The Yankee Doodle Boy’ written by George M. Cohen in 1904.
