“My Pony”

Hop, hop, hop! Nimble as a top,
Where ’tis smooth and where ’tis stony,
Trudge along my little pony,
Hop, hop, hop, hop, hop!
Nimble as a top.


Whoa, whoa, whoa! How like fun we go,
Very well my little pony,
Safe’s our jaunt thro’ rough and stony,
Spare, spare, spare, spare, spare!
Sure enough we’re there.
