“Trot, Trot, Trot”

Trot, trot, trot! Trot, my little pony trot!
Where it’s smooth and where it’s stony,
Trot along my little pony;
Go, and never stop!
Trot, trot, trot, trot, trot!
Hop, hop, hop! Hop, my bunny hop!
Where it’s dark and where it’s sunny,
Hop along my little bunny;
Go, and never stop!
Hop, hop, hop, hop, hop!
3. Jump, jump, jump! Jump, my froggy jump!
Where it’s wet and where it’s muggy,
Jump along my little froggy;
Go, and never stop!
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump!
