He was a good player
Who gave us five strong years
But now we must separate the memories
And wipe away the tears
The Red Bulls have sold Lloyd Sam
To our hated rivals in DC
He was a favorite so I'll wish him well
But seeing him in black and red won't be easy
He was that rare foreign player
Who understood the depth of the rivalry
So it's hard to seem him leave
Hopefully he won't become a Metro slayer
It hurts, but I will wait patiently
And hope Ali has something big up his sleeve
