Up There Cazaly on

This song was recorded in 1979 and sold over 250,000 records. It became the biggest selling Aussie single ever released up to that time. It's still a favourite of sports fans and often heard at games and on TV especially the AFL Grand Final.

The song was inspired by the Aussie sporting phrase "Up There Cazaly" heard shouted at football matches. Roy Cazaly was a champion footballer (St Kilda and South Melbourne) noted for his high-flying marks (specky).

A specky (slang for spectacular mark or a hanger) is a type of mark in Australian rules football. In a typical specky, a player jumps high up often on another player's back in order to catch (mark) the ball.

Well you work to earn a living
But on weekends comes the time
You can do what ever turns you on
Get out and clear your mind
Me, I like football
And there's a lot of things around
But when you line 'em up together
The footy wins hands down

Up there cazaly, in there and fight
Out there and at 'em, show 'em your might
Up there cazaly, don't let 'em in
Fly like an angel, you're out there to win

Now there's a lot more things to football
Than really meets the eye
There are days when you could give it up
There are days when you could fly
You either love or hate it
Depending on the score
But when your team run out or they kick a goal
How's the mighty roar (hooray, hooray)

Up there cazaly, in there and fight
Out there and at 'em, show 'em your might
Up there cazaly, don't let 'em in
Fly like an angel, you're out there to win

Up there cazaly, you're out there to win
In there and at 'em, don't let 'em in
Up there cazaly, show 'em you're high
Fight like the devil, the crowds on your side

Ahhh...
Up there cazaly, in there and fight
Out there and at 'em, show 'em you're might
Up there cazaly, show 'em you're high
Fight like the devil, the crowd's on your side
The crowd's on your side...
