Hello out there, we're on the air,
It's hockey night tonight.
Tension goes, 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 ol' hockey game

Oh, the good ol' hockey game is the best game you can name,
And the best game you can name is the good ol' hockey game.

Where players dance 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 bumblebees,
They travel like a burning flame.
You see them slide, the puck inside,
It's a one-one hockey game.

Oh, the good ol' hockey game is the best game you can name,
And the best game you can name is the good ol' hockey game.

Oh take me where the hockey players
Face off down the rink
And the Stanley Cup is all filled up
For the chance to win the drink.

Now the final flick of a hockey stick
And a one gigantic scream.
The puck is in, the home team wins
The good ol' hockey game.

Oh, the good ol' hockey game is the best game you can name,
And the best game you can name is the good ol' hockey game.

Oh, the good ol' hockey game is the best game you can name,
And the best game you can name is the good ol' hockey game.

Oh, the good ol' hockey game is the best game you can name,
And the best game you can name is the good ol' hockey game.

    General CommentThis song is the best hockey song ever. Stompin' Tom is my great-uncle too, so it's pretty cool that he wrote this... anyways yea. And to whoever entered the song, the chorus is wrong.

    General CommentOOOOOOOOOOH! The Good Ol' Hockey Game
    Is the best game you can name!
    And, the best game you can name,
    Is the good ol' hockey game!!!

    I think that more or less sums up the feelings of 90% of all Canadians, at least when they're excited by hockey action.

    Awesome song with simple, true lyrics. Live on Stompin' Tom.
