The Tiger Bay Brawlers need to raise cash,
It’s why we’re holding our birthday bash!
It’s why we skated for miles in the rain
(and carried on smiling despite the pain)!
We’re pimping out coaches to train your teams,
Billie Pistol + Boba are the jammers of dreams,
Judge Redd can teach skills + rules galore,
And Kid Block is Kid Block, need we say more?
For three whole years we’ve been training hard,
Support from our fans is just reward,
But now our first ever tournament looms
And we need help to get there (and pay for our rooms).
The A team are ready, their uniforms pressed
Facing top Euro-teams is the ultimate test
We leave in three weeks on the Brawler bus to Gent
And we’re grateful for all the donations you’ve sent.
But we’ve not met our goal of raising five grand,
Yes it’s ambitious, but on the other hand
We’ve achieved every other target in sight,
But this one eludes us, try as we might.
So if you can spare us a few of your pennies,
You’ll be loved by all Brawlers (of which there are many),
We’re always overwhelmed by all your support
And thank you for appreciating our kick-ass sport!
We hope we’re not cheeky in asking for this,
And appreciate some will just give it a miss,
But we’ll keep plugging at it through pain and through strife,
‘cuz when you’re a Brawler, you’re a Brawler for life!
