Lyrics

I'm a Fan!

Written By: Paul Lamoureux

VS. 1
I'm not the centre of attraction
But I'm a part of the game.
The players provide the action,
But I'm the reason for their fortune and fame.
No, I don't get any glory
But I always do what I can
To share in the loss and the victory.
I'm a part of the game plan.

PRE-CHORUS
I'm a V-I-P
I'm the M-V-P
I'm an F-A-N

CHORUS
I'm a Fan!
Yeah, I'm a Fan!
I'm a real noisemaker
I'm the true tie-breaker
I'm a Fan!
Yeah, I'm a Fan!
And from my head to my toes,
Everyone knows where I stand.
Yeah, I'm a Fan...

VS 2
I sit way up in the cheap seats
Section G, Row 10, seat 7
I like to scream and shout
Till my voice gives out
So they'll show me on the sports at eleven.
I give 'em hell where they're lady
But I'm there when the going gets tough.
In overtime, I just go crazy!
And when we win, I just can't get enough, whoa no!

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE
And when we're losin'
I just get bolder
I'm loud and proud
I'm a season- ticket - holder!

CHORUS X 2

And I know that it shows
Everyone knows I'm a FAN!
