Born and bred in the South

Christchurch, home of the Crusaders

Champions for eight years in a row

Aint got time for you haters

I bleed BLACK and RED

Raised in the islands of Samoa

Pearl and heart of the Pacific

People of smiles, fun and laughter

Don’t be fooled though

Our tackles and rugby hits are even harder! 

Full blooded Samoan

Take me back to the beaches of Ulutogia

Where the sand kisses the sea

As if they’ve dated forever

Ua Togipatauileave 

Words I hold onto and dearly remember

Connected to the homeland of Malietoa

Paramount high chief, ruler of all mankind 

Sapapalii, where the good news was told

Le Taeao nai Mataniu Feagaimaleata

A new beginning, a new shed of light

Blood is thicker than water

I am who I am

Hate me? Deal with it son

There’s nothing you can do about it
