The Lyrics

I saw a horrible sight on TV the other night. No, not the Republican Presidential debate: Kentucky vs. Tennessee in college basketball. As a Yankee Fan who hates the Mets, I knew blue and orange didn't go together. But who knew it could clash THIS badly?
Blue shirts!
Blue shirts!
Blue shirts!
And that ain't right!
Blue shirts, they don't look so right
mixed with the orange wearing tonight!
Blue shirts!
And that ain't right!

Well, I say blue shirts of Kentucky
and Tennessee orange
put on, it looks real bad, it makes me blue!
I say blue shirts of Kentucky
and Tennessee orange
it clashes really bad, you know it's true!

Well, it was on ESPN!
Can't watch it again!
Who won the game?
Who cares? Colors a shame!

Blue shirts of Kentucky
and Tennessee orange
put on, it looks real bad, it makes me blue!

(instrumental break)

Well, I say blue shirts of Kentucky
and Tennessee orange
put on, it looks real bad, it makes me blue!
I say blue shirts of Kentucky
and Tennessee orange
it clashes really bad, you know it's true!

(instrumental break)

Well, it was on ESPN!
Can't watch it again!
Who won the game?
Who cares? Colors a shame!

Blue shirts of Kentucky
and Tennessee orange
put on, it looks real bad, it makes me blue!
This is a big rivalry in football, where they play for a trophy called the Old Bourbon Barrel. In basketball, Kentucky has been one of the truly great programs, while Tennessee is usually overshadowed by its women's team. Tennessee came in 16-1, Kentucky just 7-9, horrible by their standards. But Kentucky defended their home court in Lexington and pulled the upset, 72-66. Still, I don't think I've ever seen a worse-looking game. Kentucky blue and Tennessee orange are truly an awful combination.
