Songs


Instruments: Fancy bringing your drum or horn to Breese Stevens Field? All instruments entering the stadium must be pre-approved by The Flock’s Matchday Ops committee before matchday, and names will be checked at the gate. This is to ensure that instrumentation is organized, high quality, and facilitates leading supporters in song. Ever sat through a bad band concert? Then you know what we’re trying to avoid. Contact us to get approved.


Allez, Allez, Allez

We’ll conquer USL; we’re never gonna stop!
From Lansing down to Tucson, we’ll win the flocking lot!
To Peter and to Daryl, the fields of Breese Stevens;
We are the supporters, and we come from Madison!

Allez, allez, allez (x4)
