Skate On Spurs,
Skate On



Listen to It as You Read the Lyrics (904 kb).  It's easy to tell that this song was made in the 70s.  It's easier to see Gassoff, Schultz and MacNeil taking the ice to The Stooges "Search and Destroy" than this song, but it's history and deserves to be on the page.

Flashing 'cross the blue line
Crashing toward the goal
Flying like the Rocky Mountain Wind
Battling in the corners
Fighting for control
The Denver Spurs are on the move again.

Crushing straining bodies
Rushing to the net
Checking 'til the goalie stands alone
Sending slap shots whistling
Taking all that they can get
'Til the chords snap as the puck is driven home

   CHORUS
     SKATE ON SPURS, SKATE ON
     SKATE ON SPURS, SKATE ON
     Score
     One More
     And we'll be
     Roaring along
     SKATE ON SPURS, SKATE ON    BRIDGE
     SKATE ON SPURS, SKATE ON
     SKATE ON SPURS, SKATE ON
     SKATE ON SPURS, SKATE ON
     SKATE ON SPURS, SKATE ON

Leaning from the balconies
Screaming from the stands
As the pride of Denver turns the ice to steam
We're stamping on the concrete
We're clapping burning hands
Loving our Colorado hockey team

   CHORUS
