featuring the Cypress Studio Singers
Regularly featured on TV – at the Winter Olympics and during NHL games – this song is a barn burner! At the premiere of this choral arrangement people starting clapping before the song was even over! – then they jumped to their feet. This is a fun way to close a concert!

LYRICS

Do you know the name of Gordie Howe?
How about the legend Bobby Orr?
Mario Lemieux, one of the few;
Rocket Richard raced round the rink.
The most famous one was who do you think?
Great Wayne Gretzky! 

Good old hockey game
Is the best game you can name;
And the best game you can name
Is the good old Hockey game!
Hello out there! We’re on the air,

It’s Hockey Night tonight
Tension grows, the whistle blows
And the puck goes down the ice.
The goalie jumps, and the players bump
And the fans all go insane;
Someone roars, “Bobby scores!”
At the good old hockey game.

Oh! The good old hockey game
Is the best game you can name;
And the best game you can name
Is the good old Hockey game!

Where players dash with skates a-flash,
The home team trails behind;
But they grab the puck and go bursting up,
And they’re down across the line.
They storm the crease like bumble bees; 
they travel like a burning flame;
We see them slide the puck inside,
It’s a one-one hockey game.

Oh, take me where the hockey players
Face-off down the rink;
And the Stanley Cup is all filled up,
For the champs who win the drink.
Now the final flick of a hockey stick
And the one gigantic scream:
“The puck is in” – The home team wins
The good old hockey game!
