Wellington Phoenix song?

I heard this song in a Top 10 Wellington Phoenix goals video maybe 6 years ago, I'm guessing that it's a parody of another song but I'm not really sure. Would love to find a link to the song, full lyrics, origin etc...

The lyrics I remember are as follows, might not be 100% accurate;

"We are the phoenix, we are the phoenix. Feel our fire, feel our fire. Rise from the cake tin ...."

That song was recorded by a few Fever members and a local Wellington band around season 1 if I recall correctly - it's been 10+ years.

There may be a link to it in the early threads from 2007, but not sure if any if those would be live now.

Feverish was the one organising it, maybe drop him a PM as he still may have copies of the song somewhere.

Beauty. If you find a crisp audio version, let me know. I love the rhythm of it. First time hearing it in quite a few years :)

I was tired of the rugby

We'd been together too long

Like a worn out recording

Of a Feverish song...

We are the Phoenix, we are the Phoenix

Feel our fire, feel our fire

It will rise from the ashes, our football pyre

We are the Fever, we are the Fever

We'll take you down, we'll take you down

Blow you away from Wellingtown

We are the Kiwi, we are the kiwi

One club of NZ, One club of NZ

It takes seven of you to take us on (first season was only 8 teams)

We are the Phoenix, we are the Phoenix

Ring of fire, ring of fire

The black and yellow fever in our blood

(instrumental break)

Repeat above from the start

I'm an optimistic pessimist. 

I'm positive things will go wrong.

right I have been in touch with Uncle Monkey and they have got the studio manager to go back into the archives and find the audio file which has the line ‘all nine of you’ sung. 

Will cost $400 to do a remix to replace ‘seven of you’. 

Funds needed..

Maybe wait to see what's happening with expansion then.

Also, good job.
