Chorus:
4   5  5  5   5   5   6   5  5    -4  -4   4  
Oh it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever 
-4
seen 
6   -6 6  7  -7  -6  6   5   4  -4 4   4   -4
My father he was orange and my mother she was 
  4
green 

4   5  5  5   5   5  6 5   5     5    -4  5 5    
Oh my father was an Ulsterman, proud Protestant 
5   -4
was he
6   6 -6   6  7  -7 -6     5     4   -4 4   4 
My mother was a Catholic girl, from County Cork 
-4   4
was she
 4    -4    5  5   5  5    5   6     6   5  5 -4
They were married in two churches, lived happily 
-4  5
enough
 6 6   -6  6   7  -7 -6   5    4    -4    4 
Until the day that I was born and things got 
 5 -4    -4
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 

Baptised by father Reilly, 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 ever seen 
My father he was orange and my mother she was green 

With mother every Sunday to mass I'd proudly stroll 
Then after that the orange lads would try to save my soul 
For both sides tried to claim me, but I was smart because 
I played the flute or played the harp, depending where I was 

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

One day my ma's relations came round to visit me 
Just as my father's kinfolk were all sittin' 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 

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 

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

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