Thursday Theme Song - The Orange and the Green

The Orange and the Green
Artist: The Irish Rovers
Sung by: Jimmy Ferguson

Oh it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen
My father he was orange and my mother she was green

Oh my father was an Ulsterman, proud Protestant was he
My mother was a Catholic girl, from County Cork was she
They were married in two churches, lived happily enough


Until the day that I was born and things got rather tough

Oh it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen
My father he was orange and my mother she was green

Now my parents never could agree about my type of school


My learning was all done at home,

that's why I'm such a fool

They both passed on, god rest them,


but left me caught between

That awful color problem of the orange and the green

Yes it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen
My father he was orange and my mother she was green

Perfect, Doug, as Anni said, just great for St. Paddy's day, when all the Orangemen stay home trying to look inconspicuous.
I always loved the Irish Rovers, and dear old Jimmy, wasn't he wonderful?

I liked the Irish Rovers, the radio don't play them very much these days.
