Club song[change | change source]

Oh, we're from Tigerland
A fighting fury, we're from Tigerland
In any weather, you will see us with a grin
Risking head and shin
If we're behind, then never mind
We'll fight and fight and win
For we're from Tigerland
We never weaken till the final siren's gone
Like the tiger of old
We're strong and we're bold
For we're from Tiger
Yellow and black
We're from Tigerland!
