The Ballad of Orange and Green was a bawdy song about the offspring of an Altasa and a Vulcan.

One of the choruses contained the following lyrics:

Oh, I was the strangest kiddie
That you have ever seen:
My mother, she was orange
And my father he was green...

Other lyrics were:

Now my mother hated greenery,
my father hated meat;
and neither one would feed me
what the other one would eat-

In the year 2275, aboard the USS Enterprise, the ballad was sung in the recreation deck by a group of about thirty of the crew. (TOS novel: The Wounded Sky)
