Orange & The Green

these words: greg champion

CHORUS:
Oh it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever known
Me father is a Power man me mother she’s a Crow

Oh my Daddy is blue collar, from Ethelton came he
my mother is a Beaumont girl she went to MLC
at a motel in Glenelg the two were wed and honeymooned
but since Port joined the AFL they sleep in separate rooms

oh and when the Crows arrived my mother fell for Nigel Smart
Scotty Hodges, David Marshall, cute young Benny Hart
While Daddy fed me stories of Alberton by night
And raved about his heroes David Grainger and Bruce Light

Now when I was small my Mum said “if you know what’s good for you
You’ll be a loyal Norwood boy and dress in red and blue”
But me Dad had other plans, as soon as Mum was out of sight
He’d dress me in the prison stripes of Magpie black and white

Then one day at Football Park it was at Showdown X One Vee
I was with me Mum & Dad when things began to turn ugly
Pretty soon it fired up, a Ramsgate-style melee
And me bein’ strictly neutral well, everyone belted me
