Last Friday we returned home to Archer Stadium and got to see Lansing United back in action for the first time in eight months (which, by the way, is WAY TOO LONG). It was great to see so many people out to support United and we’re so excited for what the 2015 season has to bring. We taught some new chants on Friday and we used some old ones, and now, we’re making it even easier for EVERYONE to learn our songs.
We’d love to have EVERYONE joining us in song every game. Whether you’re standing with us in the Sons of Ransom section or sitting in the main bleachers we want you to know what we’re singing and join in.
To make it easier for everyone to learn our songs, we’ve started recording them and we’re glad to be able to share these with you. Give them a listen, learn the lyrics and the tunes, then join us next time you’re at a game. Speaking of the next time you’re at a game, the next game is Saturday, May 2 at 7pm against AFC Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor is a new team this year, playing in the Great Lakes Premier League, so let’s show them how to do this supporter thing.
Here’s the playlist with some of our new songs and some old ones. Look below the playlist for the lyrics and more information about some of the songs.
In My Merry Oldsmobile
This song is a tribute to our namesake, Ransom E. Olds, founder of Oldsmobile and one of the fathers of modern day Lansing. We’ll sing it at or around the 88th minute of every Lansing United game.
Come away with me, Lucille
In my merry Oldsmobile
Down the road of life we’ll fly
Automobubbling, you and I
To the church we’ll swiftly steal
Then our wedding bells will peal
You can go as far as you like with me
In my merry Oldsmobile.
Glory To United
Glory to United!
Go, go United!
Glory to United
Here we go!
Hey hey hey hey
If you believe then just stand up on your feet,
And shout it loud LAN U!
Here at the Archer the battle hymn’s begun,
Sing for the white and blue
We Love You
We love you, we love you, we love you,
And where you go we’ll follow, we’ll follow, we’ll follow,
Cause we support United, United, United,
And that’s the way we like it, we like it, we like it,
Take Me Home, United Road
Take me home, United road,
To the place that I belong,
To the Archer, to see United,
Take me home, United road.
Come on Lansing Score a Goal
Come on Lansing score a goal,
It’s really really simple,
Put the ball into the next
And watch us all go mental…
So there you have it. A mix of old and new. We’ll be posting more as the pre-season goes on, and we hope next time you hear one of these songs at a game you’ll join in.
BRING. THE. NOISE.
