Military cadences used for most non-military purposes are called "chants". This chant begins at .059

This video included Portuguese subtitles on the screen. Here are those words:

Portuguese subtitles from that video:
cinco, seis,
cinco, seis, sete, oito!
Aonde quer que vamos
Sempre nos perguntam
Quem somos
Entao respondemos
Somos os Titas
Os poderosas Titas
-snip-
Here's the English language translation:
[One person counts down to the beginning of the chant]*
5,6,
5, 6, 7, 8
Everywhere we go
People wanna know
Who we are
So we tell them
We are the Titans

Mighty Mighty Titans
Ooh ah Oh yeah
Ooh ah oh yeah

[repeat the entire chant a number of times]

*These chants often begin with counting down numbers. This is one way of ensuring that everyone starts chanting & moving [if there is an accompanying routine] at the same time.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remember_the_Titans
"Remember the Titans is a 2000 American sports film produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Boaz Yakin. The plot was conceived from a screenplay written by Gregory Allen Howard. The film is based on the true story of African American coach Herman Boone portrayed by Denzel Washington, as he tries to introduce a racially divided team at the T. C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia during the early 1970s."

Example #3: Everywhere We Go

Fun Camp song complete with Kazoos!

Transcription*
Everywhere we go
People always ask us
Who we are
Where do we come from
We always tell them
We come from Wilbur Herrlich**
And if they can’t hear us
We shout a little louder.

[continue from the beginning, each time getting louder]
-snip-
*Transcription by Azizi Powell

**Substitute the name of your city or camp, or school or other group
Some versions add the line “and we can’t be prouder” after this line

Note: Some versions of "Everywhere we go", after the line "We come from ___", this line is added "and we can’t be prouder”.
Also note that some versions of "Everywhere we go" end with the line “If they can’t hear us, they must be Deaf. However, I think that reference is insensitive. Instead of that line, my suggestion is that at the end of the last & loudest rendition, the group can yell “YEAH!

Example #4: Everywhere We Go', Barmy Army, 5th day/5th Ashes Test, SCG 2011, recorded in the crowd.

Play this very LOUD and scare the neighbours. My best recording of the Barmy Army singing 'Everywhere We Go', final day of 5th Test @ SCG, Sydney, Australia, Ashes tour 2010-2011. This was about an hour before England cleaned up the last 3 wkts to win the Test by an innings, and make the final score England 3, Australia 1. Also see my channel to watch the 'Moment of Victory' with the Last Post playing when the final wicket falls and the Barmy Army chants '3-0 to the Ingerland'.

Here the words to that chant:

The people want to know
Who we are
Who we are
Where we come from

Shall we tell them

Who we are
Who we are
Where we come from
Where we come from
We are the England
We are the England
The Mighty Mighty England
The Mighty Mighty England
We are the Army

The Barmy Barmy Army
The Barmy Barmy Army
