Tea Tree Gully C.C. Club Song
Out we come, out we come, out we come to play
Just for recreations sake to pass the time away,
Lots of fun, heaps of fun, enjoy yourselves today,
The Gully boys are hard to beat when they come out to play.
So join in the chorus, and sing it one and all,
Join in the chorus, the Gullies on the ball,
Good old Tea Tree Gully they’re champions you’ll agree
and there’ll be no play in Bombay
There’ll be no play (there’ll be no play)
There’ll be no play (there’ll be no play)
There’ll be no play in old Bombay
When the Gullies win another
There’ll be no play in old Bombay
