Hey Russo!

by David Bellel

.

A rook went back to NY City
Because Winns’ play was pure chicanery
Thames takes chances and Jorg got bonged
And in a minute, he’s righted wrong

Hey, Russo! Russo Italiano!
Hey, Russo! Russo Italiano!
Go, go, go, you mixed up Sicialiano (or Neapolitano)
All you calabraise-a hit the ball like-a crazy with-a

Hey, Russo! There’s no more Yogi Berra
Hey Russo! No more that Scooter fella
Hey, Russo! Russo Italiano!
Try an enchilada with da fish-a bac-a-lab and then-a

Hey goombah, I love a how you hits go boombah
But take a some advice, paisano
From A-Rod, your new found bro:
Get some dates with Kate
It will power every at-plate

Hey, Russo! Russo Italiano!
Hey, Russo! Russo Italiano!
Go, go, go you mixed up Sicialiano (or Neapolitano)

All you calabraise-a hit the ball like a crazy!
