Orange Lady

words/music (c) matt ralph 2007

For a year my Dad started building fulltime,

And traded our Kombi in for a red Holden ute,

And I remember the day that our car left the drive,

The feelings that we all had as we waved it goodbye,

We’d had that Kombi since it was new,

Been to the North and the South,

From perth to FNQ,

We were riding in the orange lady,

We were riding,

We wre riding in the orange lady,

We were riding in the orange lady,

She hosted our parties and carried our trees,

We saw the North and the South,

All at low speed,

But their was no other choice and we had to sell,

So we all stood back and watched,

Her roll down our hill,

We’de had that Kombi since it was new,

It took our family of six from Perth to Timbucktoo,

We’d go riding in the orange lady,

We’d go riding,

We’d go riding in the orange lady,

We’de go riding in the orange lady,

We tell the story to our friends,

How Dad made some calls to try,

To buy it back again,

And the curtains were gone,

And they made him pay more,

But we waited all together til we heard,

Her chugging back once more,

We’ve had that Kombi since it was new,

Been to the North and the South from Perth to FNQ,

We go riding in the orange lady,.

We go riding,

We go riding in the orange lady,

We go riding in the orange lady
