Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Following the Old 'Oss (Tony Deane)
There's a verse that says:

And there`ll be be cries or cribbin`.
We`ll not wear the Blue Ribbon.
It`s the Old Red Oss and a crate of beer,
That`ll bring us our good cheer.

and beside it on the web site there's an illustration of the Oss.
Finest Kind word sheet
The only thing is, the illustration, although it has ribbons that are painted red, shows an Oss with whiskers and the Red Oss doesn't have whiskers! Whoever drew the picture has taken it from a picture of the Blue Oss and just changed the ribbon colour.
