  C                                                    G
Hello out there, we're on the air, it's hockey night tonight
G                                                           C
Tension grows, the whistle blows and the puck goes down the ice
    C                                         C7            F
The goalie jumps and the players bump and the fans all go insane
F               C                     G                C
Someone roars, "Bobby scores!" at the good, old hockey game

G       C                                              G
Oh, the good, old hockey game is the best game you can name
                                                       C
And the best game you can name is the good, old hockey game

Second period,
      C                                                        G
Where players dash with skates a-flash, the home team trails behind
         G                                                            C
But they grab the puck and go bursting up and they're down across the line
     C                                       C7                    F
They storm the crease like bumble bees, they travel like a burning flame
   F                  C                   G              C
We see them slide the puck inside, it's a one-one hockey game!

G       C                                              G
Oh, the good, old hockey game is the best game you can name
                                                       C
And the best game you can name is the good, old hockey game

Third period, last game of the playoffs, too
    C                                                  G
Oh, take me where the hockey players face off down the rink
        G                                                       C
And the Stanley Cup is all filled up for the champs who win the drink
        C                                     C7           F
Now the final flick of the hockey stick and a one gigantic scream
    F               C                  G                C
The puck is in, the home team wins the good, old hockey game!

G       C                                              G
Oh, the good, old hockey game is the best game you can name
                                                       C
And the best game you can name is the good, old hockey game
G       C                                              G
Oh, the good, old hockey game is the best game you can name
                                                       C
And the best game you can name is the good, old hockey game
G       C                                              G
Oh, the good, old hockey game is the best game you can name
                                                       C C7 F G# G F C
And the best game you can name is the good, old hockey game

He shoots, he scores!
