More Chant Lyrics:


KEEP IT UP

To this melody: Watch

Whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-ohh!
Whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-ohh!

Keep it up, Rose City!
Don’t let up, no pity!
Keep it up, Rose City!

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-ohh!


BELLA CIAO

To this melody: Watch

According to Wikipedia, “The song Bella Ciao was sung by the left-wing anti-fascist resistance movement in Italy, a movement composed of anarchists, communists, socialists and also by militant anti-fascist partisans.” Our lyrics are adapted from Chumbawamba’s version of the song.

Clap and pogo…
Na-na-nana, na-nana-nana,
Green and Gold, Green and Gold, Green and Gold, Gold, Gold!
Na-na-nana, na-nana-nana,
Nana-naa-na-na-na-naa

We are the Timbers, the Portland Timbers,
Green and Gold, Green and Gold, Green and Gold, Gold, Gold!
With our friends now, up to the city,
We’re gonna shake the gates of hell!

Clap and pogo…
Na-na-nana, na-nana-nana,
Green and Gold, Green and Gold, Green and Gold, Gold, Gold!
Na-na-nana, na-nana-nana,
Nana-naa-na-na-na-naa

Next time you see us, we may be smiling,
Green and Gold, Green and Gold, Green and Gold, Gold, Gold!
Maybe in prison, or on the TV,
We’ll say the Timbers brought us here!


YOU CANNOT STOP US

TA: You cannot stop us!
Rest of Stadium: We are the Rose City!
Watch


YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE

At the 80th minute
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
So please don’t take my sunshine away
Watch


CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE

At the 85th minute
Wise men say – Only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you
Take my hand – Take my whole life too
‘Cause I can’t help falling in love with you
Watch
