There's a girl at my school
Who's called Lizzy Gorenje
Which I think is cool
Cos her name rhymes with orange.

There is no rhyme for orange
But don't tell Lizzie G.

Interesting. We really did have a girl at school with that surname, although it may have been spelled differently. She pronounced it so that it did rhyme with orange, so perhaps she wasn’t Slovenian?

There is a famous appliance company in Slovenia called Gorenje, it’s like the Slovenian hotpoint 🤣 but pronounced ‘go-ren-ye’. Maybe she just developed an easier way to say it in English!
