The Orange And The Green

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

Such a fun song. Yes, it is to the tune of Rising of the Moon. Pretty common for Irish/Celtic songs to share tunes, actually.

This particular tune made my dad furious he said my grandpa came off the handle this song. Apparently it making fun of a true tune of a war song fighting Irish. The fact that I liked this song in my dad tells him to fill me in fill me in papa
