Dutch Football Songs about Oranje Posted by on Jun 28, 2010 in Dutch Language

As we all know, it is football season and oranjegekte (a strange disorder characterized by the inability to wear any color other than orange and a compulsive need to hang orange flags from every place possible) has descended on the country.  What you might not know, though probably do, is how important singing is.  If you really really want to display your support of the national team, you should be singing.  It will probably be something corny, you might not do it unless there is a game on, but Dutch fans sure can sing their hearts out when the time comes.  Below you will find some of the songs I keep hearing over and over, but feel free to add to this list with your favorites (or not-so-favorites) in the comments section below.

Hup Holland Hup
