If you don’t already know the tune, A) Shame on you and B) listen to the video while reading/singing along with the adjusted lyrics below.

Six skaters and playoffs comin’.
We’re finally on our own.
This game I hear the drummin’.
Go Kings Go in Ohio.

Kings get down to it.
Four point games are coming around.
Should have been won long ago.
What if you lose them and
Find you dead in A-pril?
You must score, don’t you know?

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, na, na.

Gotta get down to it.
The west is cutting us down.
Should have been won long ago.
What if you blew it and
Found us dead in A-pril?
How can you lose when you know?

Columbus soldiers and Garon’s comin’.
We’ll see how we’ve grown.
This night I hear the booing’.
Go Kings Go in Ohio.

Go Kings Go in Ohio.

Go Kings Go in Ohio!

  1. I remember the murders … Nice try but for many of us old enough to remember….

    • Oh come now. Its not a knock on the murders. Its a great song, very loosely relevant, and having a little fun. That in no way disrespects what happened in Ohio all those years ago.

  2. Just wondering when number 11 is going to realize he’s an offensive player…..standing still accomplishes nothing.

    • Kopi did not have a very good game. I was a bit baffled by the decision to put he and Brown out there for so much of the OT. Lewis too. None of these 3 guys played very well.

      I wanted to see Loki, Poni, Williams, Stoll, Smyth and Clifford out there more, who all had very strong games.

      Still, can’t really complain too much with a win. The OT didn’t matter so much as some of the breakdowns throughout the game and really, the failings of the PP which continually breathed life into the Jackets with its suckitude.

  3. On May 4, 1970, one of my closest friends was shot dead on the Kent St. campus. Sandra Scheuer was not even protesting on the green. She was walking to her next class with Tom Grace. Neil Young does make a reference about Sandra in his marvelous song “Ohio” through Tom’s eyes.

    “What if you knew her, and found her dead on the ground? How can you run when you know?”

    But there is a better song, in my opinion. It’s written by Harvey Andrews, it called “Hey Sandy”

    Big win tonight, we truly need every point we can get at this point of the season…but Sandy and the other 3 dead students were not on my mind tonight while rooting for the Kings.

    • I’m sorry to hear you were so close to the tragedy that I feel I must once again reiterate I was not meaning to disrespect. Didn’t even occur to me that it would be taken that way, but I guess some bonds are hard to overlook when there is a personal connection.

      I adjusted a couple of things in there that should make it a bit more… tasteful… though I keep a general principle that taste is not a strong impetus for content on this site. I didn’t care to write a regular old pregame, but wanted to put something up. I thought Blue Jackets… Columbus, Ohio… Ohio… the song popped into my head, a song I’ve loved for a long time, and I ran with it.

      I hadn’t heard the song by Harvey Andrews. I liked it. Great bass riff.

      It was a very good game tonight, great win for the Kings even if they almost let it slip away.

    • Grover, I have lost more than a few friends to unfortunate circumstances and I understand the sensitivity of which you speak, but I can assure you, Surly meant nothing personnal with his post. Matter of fact, he has brought to my attention, on a few occasions, the importance of fair debate without personnal attacks no matter the madness. He has a good soul.

  4. Oh ya, great job Washington. Good night for the Kings.
