CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A father and son are literally singing their praises to the Bengals after the team's incredible winning start to the season.

The rap song, written and edited by the father and son team, sounds like an anthem for the Bengals. The song can be found on YouTube under the name, "The Best Bengals Song Ever."

This rap song was inspired by a father and son's love for their hometown team; a love they wanted to express through the art of song.

Dominic Philpot and his son worked side-by-side writing this rap song and shooting the music video, which has now gone viral. "My son came to me and said, ‘Hey dad, you know we love the Bengals but I've never heard of a Bengals’ song.’"

"I thought that we should make a song for the Bengals and so we sat down and we just created this art and that's what it is, art," said Dominic Philpot, a Cincinnati man who wrote and filmed the music video with his son.

The aspiring young rapper shares many similarities with his dad including his love of the game and his love of music. They both hope that someday, the music they've created together will be heard and sung by thousands of loyal fans.

"My plan is that we go to the Super Bowl, we win and then we make a lot of money," ten-year-old Dominic Philpot said.

"I would like to see this song be played in the locker room of the Bengals and in the stadium so that anyone playing us knows they are in our jungle," the older of the Philpot’s said. "I believe they deserve this, I believe right now they are earning the song right here and this is it, let's celebrate Cincinnati because were coming. Who Dey!"

On Monday, the song had nearly one thousand likes on YouTube.
