Houston Oilers Fight Song: "Luv Ya Blue (Oilers #1!)"


I discovered this gem yesterday - lyrics follow. My wife - a casual football fan (49ers) at best - said she grew up loving this song since first hearing it in the late-70s. Apparently it got a lot of air play in Northern California because she knows it by heart. I grew up in BR an avid football fan (Saints and Steelers) and can't recall ever hearing it.

God bless You Tube because now I'm up to speed. Is this song familiar to anyone else? It's ooom-pah / march beat is catchy and the dated optimism of the late-70s lyrics is absolute gold.

And no, I don't have a point - just a skosh bored.

--------------------

Look out football, here we come,
Houston Oilers, Number One.

Houston has the Oilers, the greatest football team.
We take the ball from goal to goal like no one's ever seen.
We're in the air, we're on the ground - always in control,
And when you say the Oilers, you're talking Super Bowl.

'Cause we're the Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers,
Houston Oilers, Number One.
Yes, we're the Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers,
Houston Oilers, Number One.

We've got the offense, we've got the defense,
We give the other team no hope.
'Cause we're the Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers,
You know we're gonna hold the rope.

Yes, we're the Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers,
Houston Oilers, Number One.
Yes, we're the Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers,
Houston Oilers, Number One.

'Cause we're the Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers,
Houston Oilers, Number One - Five - Seven - Eight,
We're the best from the Lone Star State!
Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers,
Houston Oilers, Number One.

I remember watching MNF as a kid when the Oilers were rocking this in the Astrodome.

This city is going crazy for the Texans this offseason. Can't wait for the first game, we're gonna blow the roof off of Relient!

I remember the hype surrounding the Pastoroni-Campbell teams of the late-70s / early 80s. Absolutely soul-crushing playoff losses to the Steelers was the end of Bum.

I recall an empty crowd shot late in a home loss. An Oiler fan in full regalia (hat, boots, etc.) was soaking up the suckage all alone in the nosebleeds. When he realized he was on camera he slowly and methodically flipped the bird.

The Miami Dolphins actually used the same song (with some slight changes to the lyrics, obviously).

There was also a separate "Luv Ya Blue" song.
