The English call it a derby
Why do they call it that???
To me, it's the Battle of the Hudson
Not a funny outdated hat
On this night, the neighbors from the Bronx
Clapped their hands and made some noise
But when all was said and done
Victory belonged to Jesse Marsch's boys
Bradley Wright-Phillips scored a pair
The English would call it a "brace"
It came down to desire, not mere luck
RBNY wanted it more and left it all out there
Take that, City Lite; yeah, in your face
With 1 win in 10 matches, you really do suck
