Sung to Galway Bay song

If you ever go across the bridge to Howrah,
Or out along the road to Geilston Bay,
You’ll tread the sacred soil of Eastern Suburbs,
Where rugby is the game we love to play, we love to play.
What do we think of Easts? We’re alright. 
I can’t hear you what do we think of Easts? We’re alright.

And affectionately added to our bigger wins.

Roosters are you ready ready?
Yes we are ready ready!
Roosters are you ready ready?
Yes we are ready ready!
The roosters are having a party, the roosters are having a party, the roosters are having a party…
And (opposing team) are in the bin, (opposing team) are in the bin.

ORIGINAL CLUB SONG (words by Cliff Wright)

Have you ever been across the bridge to Howrah
Have you ever walked from there to Geilston Bay
You will tread the sacred soil of Eastern Suburbs
where rugby is the game we love to play
One by one the opposition came to play us
and one by one fell victim to the way
the rugged Eastern backs and forwards attacked them
to defend the soil on which they play
So if you ever cross the bridge to Howrah
make sure you walk from there to Geilston Bay
you will tread the sacred soil of Eastern Suburbs
where rugby is the game we love to play
Repeat: we love to play
