“Their Only Crime Was Orange”

I wrote this little song in support of the poor Dutch ambush marketeers, who dared to attend Netherlands versus Denmark at Soccer City while wearing bright orange mini-dresses.
If you’d like to write some music for this song, feel free.
If you’d like to sing this song, go for it.
If you’d like to play this song on your guitar and record it and put it on YouTube, you’re very welcome.
But whatever you do…don’t even think of wearing orange to a World Cup football match.

 

Their Only Crime Was Orange

 

They came to a land of Goodwill and “Cheers!”

To watch a few games and drink a few beers

They flew to the shores of a Rainbow Nation

That once served as Holland’s Refreshment Station

 

They came and they saw and because they were Dutch

In the cold chill of winter, they didn’t wear much

Just a skirt and a scarf and below, in the area

A little black label that said, “From Bavaria”

 

Three cheers, three cheers, for the Dutch marketeers

Oh bring us a round of Budweiser

Three cheers, three cheers, for their hopes and their fears

For now they’re in the scheizer

 

Chorus:

Their only crime was Orange

And nothing rhymes with orange

Borange, Corange, Dorange, Forange,

Their only crime was Orange!

 

They came to be proud and to sing for their country

Their voices were loud and they had the effrontery

To dress in the tone of their national banner

And behave in a shameful, provocative manner

 

They came to a land of a New Revolution

Of freedoms enshrined in a strong Constitution

They came to a land where all that doesn’t matter

For the laws of the land are proclaimed by Sepp Blatter

 

Three cheers, three cheers, for the Free Marketeers

Let’s drink to the cause they believe in

Three cheers, three cheers, for their hopes and their fears

Good Lord, they must be freezing

 

Chorus:

Their only crime was Orange

And nothing rhymes with orange

Gorange, Horange, Jorange, Korange

Lorange, Morange, Norange, Porange

Quorange, Rorange, Sorange, Torange

Vorange, Worange, Yorange, Zorange

Their only crime was Orange!
