Dedicated to my granddaughters, Samantha and Aubrey, who are fine young women and talented hockey players. I am very proud of them both.

Threw on my pads, slipped on my skates
Grabbed my stick and rushed through the gates
Buzzed around the ice, so cold and slick
Nothin’ like a grip on a hockey stick cause…

I’m a hockey girl
I’m a hockey girl
Love the game that’s fast and rough
Love the game, never get enough

Took a pass, knocked a girl down
Grabbed that puck and went to town
Split the defense, I was on a roll
Took my best shot and scored a goal

I’m a hockey girl
A hockey girl
Love the game that’s fast and rough
Love the game, never get enough

A man said, Hockey girl, come play against me
He gave me the elbow, gave me the knee
“This is a man’s game sweetie,” is what he said
“Give it up, darlin”—and I saw red! Cause…

I’m a hockey girl
A hockey girl
Love the game that’s fast and rough
Love the game, never get enough

That man sneered as he rushed my way
But I stopped him cold, stole the puck away
Dropped him like a stone with a solid hip check
Didn’t look back when he hit the deck! Cause…

I’m a hockey girl
A hockey girl
Love the game that’s fast and rough
Love the game, never get enough

Mastered the slap shot, learned how to deke
Scored my first hat trick just last week
Heard the crowd roar when we won the game
I found my passion and my life is not the same… cause

I’m a hockey girl
A hockey girl
Love the game that’s fast and rough
Love the game, never get enough

Bonded with the other girls on my team
Making the Olympics is my dream
Playing for my country would be so nice
I’d be the happiest player on the ice… cause

I’m a hockey girl
A hockey girl
Love the game that’s fast and rough
Love the game, never get enough!


If you can believe it, there’s a whole collection of poems and lyrics all about Hockey called Going Top Shelf: An Anthology of Canadian Hockey Poetry. Would you consider this bookshelf or bathroom reading material?
