Onderstepoort Sport

A name to be proud of! OP has one of the best - if not the best - sporting record of all the residences and faculty houses of the University of Pretoria. This is all due to the extra hard work all the sportsmen and sportswomen put into training. It is not all hard work though ... sports at OP is a great way to relax, get away from work and make many new friends, and have some hilarious moments at the same time. Everyone that represents OP is proud to display our badge and give it their all on the sport field and do OP proud!

Here are the words to the OP Song which can also be found on the res website. This song is often sung at sporting events. Please learn the words so you don't look silly when everyone else is proudly singing and you stand there mouthing...

The Op Boys Are Happy
And The Op Boys Are Free
The Op Boys Are Sober
When They Go Out On A Spree
They Never, Never Quarrel
And They Never Disagree
For The Motto Of The Op Boys Is
‘Come And Drink With Me!’
Say Boys Put One Down
Can I Help?
Glorious, Glorious
Ten Pints Of Beer Amongst The Four Of Us
Glory Be To J.B. That There
Ain’t No More Of Us
For The One Of Us Could Drink The
Bloody Lot
So What!
6 Foot, 7 Foot, 8 Foot… Boogie!!
