The Orange and the Green, αγγλικό λίμερικ.

  Μια και αναφέραμε ότι το λίμερικ είναι αγγλικό ποιηματάκι, ευκαιρία να ακούσουμε και ένα!

The Orange and the Green
Oh, it is the biggest mix up that you have never seen.
My father, he was Orange and me mother, she was green.

Oh, my father was an Ulsterman, proud Protestant was he.
My mother was a Catholic girl from Country Cork was she.
They were married in two churches and lived happily enough
Until the day when I was born when things got rather tough.

Oh, it is the biggest mix up that you have never seen.
My father, he was Orange and me mother, she was green.

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

Oh, it is the biggest mix up that you have never seen.
 My father, he was Orange and me mother, she was green.
