Laura, maybe some folks need some help understanding this:


The Orange and Green:

Oh, it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen.
My father, he was Orange and me mother, she was green.

My father was an Ulster man, 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.

Baptized by Father Riley, I was rushed away by car,
To be made a little Orangeman, my father's shining star.
I was christened "David Anthony," but still, inspite of that,
To me father, I was William, while my mother called me Pat.

With Mother every Sunday, to Mass I'd proudly stroll.
Then after that, the Orange lodge would try to save my soul.
For both sides tried to claim me, but i was smart because
I'd play the flute or play the harp, depending where I was.

Now when I'd sing those rebel songs, much to me mother's joy,
Me father would jump up and say, "Look here would you me boy.
That's quite enough of that lot", he'd then toss me a coin
And he'd have me sing the Orange Flute or the Heros of The Boyne

One day me Ma's relations came round to visit me.
Just as my father's kinfolk were all sitting down to tea.
We tried to smooth things over, but they all began to fight.
And me, being strictly neutral, I bashed everyone in sight.

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've both passed on, God rest 'em, but left me caught between
That awful color problem of the Orange and the Green.


Have a Good Day Tuesday Laura.:)

I wore my orange bandanna last year, only one person understood, a kid that worked here in tack, had red hair. Told me he couldn't talk to me no more after he got up from ROTFL.:D

What little Irish I have in me is Ulster, so to be proper I need to wear the orange.:D


(I have my Irish CD's on the desk to put in, no western music that day except "Cowboy Celtic."

OMGosh, do I even want to know what Cowboy Celtic sounds like?

You might, it shows the links between Irish music and cowboy music. A lot are Irish tunes with differnt words. Cowboy music with all the tradional Irish instraments and accents.
