Humboldt Broncos

Bronco’s Tribute

When we were kids out on the street
You were Gordie Howe I was Gretzky
You were tough when I had the puck
Sometimes we’d fight till we had enough
You’d score a goal our sticks held high
NHL here we come, it’s Saturday night
Mom yells “Dinners ready at the hall of fame.
Come on before it gets cold, let’s watch the game”

Our fathers and mothers played
Sisters and brothers played
The fella who held a grudge, you know, what’s his name
Those who took the hit and never complained
The tailgaters who stood in line, waiting to pay
Those who left before it’s over, those who stayed
Those who waited til the bitter end
The opposing fans and all your friends…we need to say.

Before you go away
We need a minute to pray…okay?
Life will never be the same…
but we will meet you again…
at the first intermission…on hockey night in heaven…

When we were kids out on the street
You were Gordie Howe I was Gretzky
You were tough when I had the puck
Sometimes we’d fight till we had enough
You’d score a goal our sticks held high
NHL here we come, it’s Saturday night
Mom yells “Dinners ready at the hall of fame.
Come on before it gets cold, let’s watch the game”
