The Reds against the Mancs

It's the battle of the East Lancs Road,
A commercial rivalry 100 years old,
About shipping & spinning, silver & gold,
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's Melwood guile v. Fergie's bile
How easy is that twat to rile ?
It's his grimace v. a wry Scouse smile,
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

“It's like  Catalans or Basques versus Real,”
Said red-hearted Carra to his new Spanish Pals
"It’s more important than the ‘Mundial’
It’s the Reds against the Mancs."

“Oh aye it’s  better than the best bullfights
When Stevie tackles those gobshites
Get into Neville & punch out his lights
It’s the Reds against the Mancs."

It’s Viva España ! Andele, andele !
It's Masch getting stuck into Rooney - Olé !
Torres will give Rio one helluva day
For the Reds against the Mancs !

"F*ck their Shreks and Smiths & their treasons
This one's for  love - not  money reasons
Let's make it a habit, like we did for seasons,
Let's twat these f*ckin Mancs "

It's whisky breath v. fine Spanish wine,
We'll lay it down and take our time -
Show the youngsters how, in a few years' time
They’ll twat these  f*ckin Mancs.

It's Liverpool lads v. in-breds from Bury
How ugly is horse-face ? Is right ! Very !
It's singing about Posh Spice, making merry,
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's Flash Gerrard against Emperor Ming
It's having dreams and songs to sing
Not letting the Dark Lord get your ring !
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's the Enterprise v. the Clingons of course
It's Star wars - can you feel the force ?
It's Red Rum against any other horse,
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's Robin Hood v. Bad King John
and the Sheriff, rolled into one
It's a people's insurrecti-on
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's a club for people versus one for profit
It's about a pedestal and getting them off it
Their jammy Camp Nou win ? They can stuff it !
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

Though they no longer are a PLC
It’s still “us-us-us” v. “me-me-me”
Like  Militant v. Maggie  T, 
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

Our club’s revived, the stats revised
It's about the numbers Eighteen and FIVE
They won’t overtake us while we’re alive
It’s the Reds against the Mancs !

It's ha ha ha, it's hee hee hee
It's Bryan Robson's got VD,
If he comes too close he'll give it to me
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's Carlsberg versus Vodaphone
It’s nick nack paddy wack, give the dog a bone
It's Man United fuck off home
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's Georgie Best , superstar,
Pink frilly knickers and a playtex bra
Shagging fast birds & crashing fast cars
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's not about a bandwagon & jumping on
When the bubble bursts they'll be gone
First ones off are the last ones on
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's Pete Wiley v. Morrissey
The Bunnymen v. Joy Division
Cast against the Stone Roses,
....OK some you lose

It's hearing "In your Liverpool slums !"
It's "Posh Spice takes it up the bum"
It's boring, boring "Sign On ! Sign On !"
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's NO SONGS PLEASE ABOUT 58
Even if they provoke or intimidate -
We've had far too much of that, mate, 
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's a meaningless devil in your crest
Or a  Liverbird upon your chest
For we are men of Shankly's best
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's usually at ungodly hours of morning
Thanks to  Sky & "police warnings"
The atmosphere is not heart-warming
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's about who needs to catch who  up,
It's ding-dong battles in League and Cup
It's when we needed him, Danny stepped up
For the Reds against the Mancs.

Both cities  have suffered past neglect,
It’s been up to both clubs to earn respect:
Reap what you sow, cause & effect,
It's the Reds against the Mancs.

It's about your head, about your heart
Your identity, history, your craft and art
It's 40 miles, but worlds apart
It's the Reds against the Mancs.
