"About Our Penguins" They are hockey heroes And a force to be reckoned And they do not believe In that word called second And they can skate on the ice With the greatest of ease And they can attack that net Like a swarm of bees And they're quick with a stick And there's no disguise And they can hilt a hat trick Before your eyes And they play for Pittsburgh And that's a plus! And they are surely loved By all of us! So Pittsburgh Penguins We tell you true We Pittsburgh fans Are sure proud of you So go out there And "show em how it's done" And "show em what it is" To be "number one" Billy Nardozzi Pgh,Pa.
