Indeed, the closing night song was really something special. For
those that didn't have the opportunity, before the final game
of the season the players gathered in a semi-circle while Ondarres,
baton in hand, led them in the Basque fisherman song, Boga Boga.
The song lyrics tell of how a sea shanty bids farewell to home,
as the boat must go afar, to India. No longer will they see the
beautiful beach of their hometown, Ondarroa as they put out to
sea. This was a very touching tribute to the fans as the players
left their home away from home until they returned next year.
Boga, boga, Marinela, Marinela!
Joan behar degu urrutira, urrutira.
Bai Indietara, bai Indietara.
Ez det, ez det, ez det.
Nik ikusiko, zure plai ederra, plai ederra.
Agur, agur, agur!
Ondarroako itxas, itxaso basterra,
itxas, itxaso basterra.
Marinela! BOGA! Marinela!
