The Board Will Know!




Do you think this is how the formation of the Northwestern football union happened? (see alternate lyrics below, original lyrics from the movie Newsies © 1992 Disney)

COLTER (as Jack):
Delany and Emmert
They think we're nothin'
Are we nothin'?

N'WESTERN (as Newsies):
No!

COLTER:
Delany and Emmert
They think they got us
Do they got us?

N'WESTERN:
No!

COLTER:
Even though we ain't got hats or badges
We're a union just by saying so
And the world will know!

What's it gonna take to stop the playoffs?
Are we ready?

N'WESTERN:
Yeah!

COLTER:
What's it gonna take to start the payoffs?
Can we do it?

N'WESTERN:
Yeah!

COLTER:
We'll do what we gotta do
Until we break the will of the Labor Relations Board.

N'WESTERN:
And the Board will know
And the Big 10 too
NCAA Football
Have we got news for you
Now the Board will hear
What we got to say
We been makin' headlines
And we want our share today
And our ranks will grow

MARK (as Crutchy):
And we'll kick their rear

N'WESTERN:
And the Board will know
That we been here

COLTER:
When Pat Ryan comes a-ringin'
Will we hear him?

N'WESTERN:
No!

COLTER:
What if Fitzgerald comes out swingin'
Will we hear him?

N'WESTERN:
No!
When you got a hundred voices singin'
Who can hear a kickoff whistle blow?
And the Board will know
That this ain't no game
That we got a ton of practice balls and perfect aim
So they gave their word
But it ain't worth beans
Now they're gonna see
What "delay of game" really means
And the day has come
And the time is now
And the fear is gone
And the time is now
And the winds will blow
And our ranks will grow and grow and grow and so
The Board will feel the fire
And finally know!

PS: if anyone wants to create an edited video for this, I will watch it continually.
