Capitals "Football Chants"

So, before the discussion in this fanpost went completely off the rails and had to be closed, one very cool idea had been raised.  DMG summed it up best:

In my wildest dreams I imagine using the power of the internet to start up some Caps songs and/or chants and getting together a section to do them at games.

Well, why the heck not?  Maybe we can come up with something. 

Step 1 is to figure out what makes a good football chant.  From my perspective, we'd probably need to start with a tune that everybody already knows -- probably won't have much luck teaching the whole crowd a new tune.  The words should probably be moderately family friendly -- no acutal curse words -- though rhyming with a swear you think is coming, or suggestive lyrics (Ovechkin scores before, during, and after the game), is probably OK.

Anyone else have any good thoughts on what would make for a good chant?  Anyone have one in mind?  I don't think there'd be anything wrong with stealing adapting someone else's classic chant from the Premier League or anywhere else.
