Orioles fan covers Lorde's 'Royals' in support of team

"What's Kansas City got on us?" sings Lauren A. Hall in a video of her Orioles-themed cover of Lorde's song "Royals." The 26-year-old baseball fan uploaded the clip, which you can watch above, to YouTube on Tuesday.

Hall wrote the lyrics after the Orioles' sweep of the Tigers, she said in an email. The Charles Village resident is a research analyst at the University of Maryland School of Social Work in Baltimore. She said she became an O's fan in high school, and has "been hooked ever since."

Her lyrics of "Royals," as posted on YouTube, are below:

Have you heard of Baltimore?
Or Charm City as it’s called, in the movies.
We are proud of our address,
In this torn-up town, no postcode envy.

And every day it’s like, Old Bay, Nattys, hangin’ out at Dempsey’s,
Pickles, Sliders, haters up on our streets,
We don’t care, we’re winning everything on this scene.

And everybody’s like, “Orioles’ baseball is my favorite hobby,"
Bandwagon fans on Russell gettin’ sloppy,
We don’t care ‘cause the championships are here.

And we’ll beat the Royals, (Royals)
It just runs our blood.
It’s an Orange October, hon.
What’s Kansas City got on us?

And we’ll be the rulers,
All the way 'til the end.
And baby we’ll rule,
See ya at the World Series, my friends.

You see we've finally cracked the code,
Fans catch the light rail every game, to the stadium
And anyone who lives here knows,
That we're fine with this, it beats 95 traffic.

And every day it's like, Old Bay, Nattys, hangin' out at Dempsey's,
Pickles, Sliders, haters up on our streets,
We don’t care, we’re winning everything on this scene.

And everybody’s like, “Orioles' baseball is my favorite hobby,"
Bandwagon fans on Russell gettin' sloppy,
We don't care 'cause the championships are here.

And we’ll beat the Royals, (Royals)
It just runs our blood.
It's an Orange October, hon.
What's Kansas City got on us?

And we'll be the rulers,
All the way 'til the end.
And baby we'll rule,
See ya at the World Series, my friends.

Ooh Ooh oh.
We're bigger than we ever dreamed,
And everybody loves this team.
Ooh Ooh oh.

We're everything and so much more,
Life is great in Baltimore.

And we'll beat the Royals, (Royals)
It just runs our blood.
It's an Orange October, hon.
What’s Kansas City got on us?

And we’ll be the rulers,
All the way 'til the end.
And baby we’ll rule,
See ya at the World Series, my friends.
