Hello out there, we're on the air, it's 'Hockey Night' tonight.
Tension grows, the wistle blows, and the puck goes down the ice.
The goalie jumps, and the players bump, and the fans all go insane.
Someone roars, "Bobby Scores!", at the good ol' Hockey Game.

:: CHORUS ::
OH! The good ol' Hockey game, is the best game you can name.
And the best game you can name, is the good ol' Hockey game.

Second Period.

Where players dash, with skates aflash, the home team trails behind.
But they grab the puck, and go bursting up, and they're down across the line.
They storm the crease, like bumble bees, they travel like a burning flame.
We see them slide, the puck inside, it's a 1-1 hockey game.

(Chorus)

Third Period. Last game of the playoff too!

Oh take me where, the hockey players, face off down the rink.
And the Stanley Cup, is all filled up, for the champs who win the drink.
Now the final flick, of a hockey stick, and the one gigantic scream.
"The puck is in! The home team wins!", the good ol' hockey game.

(Chorus x3)

(It's in!)(He shoots, he scores!)(Henderson scores for Canada!)

    CBC hockey night in Canada should make Tom's The Hockey Song their opening song. Let's start a petition to get this in motion.

    This is an anthem, not just for Canada, but for any fan of hockey.

    Stompin' Tom is more Canadian than anyone except a beaver, moose or bear.

    This is a perfect hockey song for all ages, my son loves it. When he was 18 months old, he would sing the first part and the chorus all the time. The coolest thing was, he knew all the words to those parts. He is now 2 1/2, still loves this song and still loves hockey.

    I absolutyly love this song, its just about the sport all of us hockey players love and devote our lives to. Im a peewee (9-12) and i've been playing for about a year and this song captures not half of the sport, but he does a good job of looking at it from a fans point of veiw.
