Potential Chant: Sporting Til I Die

Name of Song/Chant: Sporting Til I Die

To the tune of: Lonely Boy by The Black Keys 

Na-na, Na-Na Na-na-na
Na-na, Na-Na Na-na-na
Na-na, Na-Na Na-na-na
Na-na, Na-Na Na-na-na

Well I’ll always love you
And it’s plain to see
We stand and cheer here every day*
So if you tear my heart out
Well I don’t mind bleeding
Any old time just give me Sporting, Sporting, Sporting

Oh, oh-oh I got a love. It's called Sporting
Oh, oh I got a love. It's called Sporting
Sporting til I die
Sporting til I die
Oh, oh-oh I got a love. It's called Sporting

* looking for alternative lyric here if you have one

Here is the edited version of the song to match the lyrics:
Lonely Boy SKCTID chant no vocal by AdAstraSKC
Original Song:

Chant Origins:
I was listening to this song in my car on a long drive and it finally hit me the challenge in getting Sporting to fit in any other chant can be easily solved by finding verbs ending with -ing.  Trying to get Sporting to rhyme with classic rhyming words in songs always seemed awkward.  But by using Sporting as a noun to replace verbs a whole new world of chants opens up.  And it also makes it hard for other teams to easily fit their name in.  Double plus! 

Heard at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park: Never
Heard from other MLS supporters groups: None - an original!

Why it works: original lyrics, incorporates Sporting well, no clapping needed, positive and supportive
Why it might not: Never been done before, not a familiar radio friendly song
