"The Derby Ram" as written by Gawain Erland Cooper, David Nock and Simon Tong....
Barbara Jackson said “will you show some respect
To a desperate man will you show some respect”
The bishop said “I am horrified
By these people's actions I’m horrified”

If you’ve ever been to Derby you’d know the reason why
If you’d ever been to Derby you’d have seen the same as I

The superintendent of the local police said
“The crowd didn’t really commit an offence”
A security guard who did crowd control said
“There’s horrible scenes, these were terrible scenes”

The acting chief of the mental health, said
“we can’t condemn this strongly enough
And no one knows what was going on
In his head no one knew what was going on”

If you’ve ever been to Derby you’d know the reason why
If you’d ever been to Derby you’d have seen the same as I

And his best friend said “that since he was four
He smiled all the time, he was so popular”
His parents just couldn’t say a thing
And the tributes were left by the school gate

If you’ve ever been to Derby you’d know the reason why
If you’d ever been to Derby you’d have seen the same as I
