GINGERS RULE
Set to “Wild Rover (no Nay Never)”
By Jack Casey

Well I’ve been a ginger since I came from the womb
And I’ll be a ginger till I’m laid in the tomb
I been proud that I’m ginger since I was a boy
And we gather together tonight here in Troy

Our members attend from all over the world
No beauty surpasses our ginger girls
We’re passionate, sexy and have so much fun
So raise up your glasses and sing out everyone

CHORUS
We are gingers,
Our lives are so sweet
Let the world embrace us
For we’re nature’s elite

When I first went to school the children all gawked
And I said what’s your problem, you forget how to talk?
And they pointed and said there’s a fire on your head
And I skinned my knuckles turning their kissers red

My fiery nature gives others concern
And low pigmentation gives me bad sunburn
Gingers have gumption and gingers have sass
And if you don’t like it you can just kiss our ass

CHORUS
We are gingers,
Our lives are so sweet
Let the world embrace us
For we’re nature’s elite

When it came time to pair up I knew in my heart
I needed a partner who never would part
I discovered there’s no one who’s a better catch
Than a fiery red head with a temper to match

So now it’s October, just look at the trees
Red, orange and yellow in the mellowest breeze
Wouldn’t it be boring with just greenery
So nature changed colors oh so gingerly

CHORUS
We are gingers,
Our lives are so sweet
Let the world embrace us
For we’re nature’s elite

It’s a rare privilege to be so unique
About us with reverence we hear others speak
They know in their hearts that we are so cool
And we know dear friends that [SHOUTED] gingers rule!
