Sean’s song in praise of hockey winners

WHEN Ballycastle High School reached the final of the Taylor Cup with a well-merited 4-1 victory over Armagh last Wednesday, the team were naturally jubilant.

So much so that one young member of the squad, Sean McMullan, penned a song about the team’s success and his hopes for a win in the final. Sean has put his song on Facebook and it’s gained quite a bit of reaction with his schoolmates.

According to Sean, the song can be sung to Alicia Keys ‘Empire State of Mind.’

The words are:

Ooohh High School x2

Taught in a school that is famous for all its hockey teams

Trainings always hard, trying to do McPeak proud ‘cause we know he’s

keen

If Matthew tightens his aim, we can win any game, that’s what Kearney says

Seeing our team... in first place if we get to the semis that’ll be us on our way

No matter how tough it seems, we gonna win by any means

We play for the High School

Seaside place where the best teams are brought up

There’s no-one we can’t beat

You’re playing the High School

McMac’s talk will make you feel brand new

Their fight will inspire you

Let’s hear it for High school, High school, High School!

On the Hockey pitch, there aint no time for a stich, Team works so hard

Kearney makes a call, one win to the final, Mcpeak prays to god

Fire up the mini-bus; take us all from the school down to play the Armagh

You may go one nil up but our fight will make us the ones saying who’s ma?

No matter how tough it seems, were gonna win by any means

We play for the High School

Seaside place where the best teams are brought up

There’s no-one we can’t beat

You’re playing the High School

McMac’s talk will make you feel brand new

Their fight will inspire you

Let’s hear it for High school, High School, High School!

Sticks down on the ground for the game start,

Shin guards, quartered shirts all looking smart

No team in the world that can compare

Put your banners in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

The High School

Seaside place where the best teams are brought up

There’s no-one we can’t beat

You’re playing the High School

McMac’s talk will make you feel brand new

Their fight will inspire you

Hear it for High School!
