Divine Comedy, The - My Lovely Horse Lyrics

My lovely, lovely, lovely horse

My lovely horse
Running through the field
Where are you going
With your fetlocks blowing
In the wind?

I want to shower you with sugar lumps
And ride you over fences
Polish your hooves every single day
And bring you to the horse dentist

My lovely, lovely, lovely horse

My lovely horse
You're a pony no more
Running around
With a man on your back
Like a train in the night, yeah
Like a train in the night...

    fog various

    as a composer.. you have to play it a LOT.. it soon becomes unfunny after the 4322342 time.. besides if you listen to neils other work, you know his sense of humour.. nhs / national express is a great example of it

    @dellarwoowoo It would make more sense saying 4 people are father dick bryne as he is ted's enemy and lost in the competion to get to eurovision from ted in this episode.

  78. Matthew Hurst

    @MatthewHurstFilm I think it's D9 minus the tonic

  79. Matthew Hurst
