    Interesting. What's the name of the artist that recorded that? Also, do you happen to know what was on the B-side?

      Go, Go You Pilots!

      For their home opener against the Chicago White Sox on April 11, 1969, the pre-game ceremonies included sportscaster Rod Belcher who wrote and delivered his rendition of the new fight song, "Go Go You Pilots!" He also released the song to local radio stations under the name "Doris Doubleday and His Command Pilots." On the reverse side was the instrumental version of the same song.

        A short clip of "Go Go You Pilots"

        I've posted this link in another thread here in the Pilots forum, but in case you've missed it, here's a link to Jim Bouton's website with a brief audio clip (first verse) of "Go Go You Pilots"

          the Pilots song

          has anyone heard this little ditty ? was it 'pop' ? 'rock'n roll' ? or just some middle of the road drivel ? was it any good ? the lyrics are a hoot..probably doesn't sound tooo bad, with the melody..

          do the Mariners have a similar song ?

            The Pilots Team Song was a bit of a jingle -- a nice tune, somewhat like a "Gilligan's Island" tune. Definitely something out of the 60's. You can hear the clip on www.brandx.net/pilots/histindx.html ...or just get into the brandx.net or seattlepilots.com website and click on "history".

                Oh yeah I remember it well. It would come on when the pregame broadcast was beginning. I guess to a seven year old kid it was a big deal. It was just a full song jingle. Mariners never had a song as far as I can remember.

                    Yeah... it's hilarious.

                    Now the Astros are a team that likes to go out on the town
                    We like to drink and fight and **** till curfew comes around
                    Then it's time to make the trek
                    We better be back for buddy's check
                    It makes a fellow proud to be an Astro.

                    That's just the first verse.

                      The Pilots' Theme Song Edited For 1970

                      The Seattle Pilots left town and landed in Milwaukee to a different tune. The edited lyrics tell the abbreviated story of the 'proud Seattle team' and the sad event of 1970:

                      Go, Go You Pilots!
                      You proud Seattle team.
                      Go, Go You Pilots!
                      You are a bankrupt team.

                      You’re bought by a car dealer
                      causing much unrest.
                      Now Go, Go You Pilots!
                      You’re going to the midwest.

                      ‘member theYankees
                      with the Oyler-Murcer brawl.
                      Red Sox and Royals
                      we did not win them all.

                      American League owners
                      you sided with the Pres.
                      And gave us enough money
                      to last through March, if best.

                      Go, Go, Go, Go, Go, Go, Go, Go

                      Now Go, Go You Pilots!
                      You’re going to the midwest.

                      White Sox and Tigers
                      the Angels and the A’s.
                      See them at other ballparks-
                      Sicks‘ is closed today.

                      Orioles and Senators
                      the Indians and Twins.
                      Our Pilots left for Milwaukee
                      as Seattle grins and grins.

                      So Go, Go You Pilots!
                      You proud Seattle team.
                      Go, Go You Pilots!
                      This year is just a dream.
                      Eddie tried to save you, Pilots
                      but Joe turned him away.
                      So Go, Go You Pilots!
                      Go, Go You Pilots!
                      Go, Go You Pilots!
                      As Seattle hollers, “Hey!”
