"We were called the Mighty Midgets - unbeatable.
As we went to a game in the back of Mr Beattie's truck we would sing:
Fernhill boys, Fernhill boys, Fernhill boys are we
We're always up to mischief wherever we may be
Teachers say we're lazy but they make a big mistake

Wherever you see a Fernhill boy he is always wide awake. Repeat until we got to the ground"
