lyrics

A BOY AND HIS PONY

Well I don’t care what them pony keepers say.
I’m gonna steal a pony one of these days,
And oh we’ll frolic through some fields underneath the blue sky,
Drink straight from the river and never get tired—
But if we do, we’ll just rest our heads,
Mine on her belly, and hers on our friends:
The trees and the flowers and the pink sunsets,
Me and my pony…
Me and my pony.

I don’t care what them pony keepers say.
I’m gonna steal that pony today—
The one with the ginger coat and the shiny silken mane.
How gorgeous she will look unrestricted from her chains!
She’ll look into the river and she’ll see
A pony staring back at her who’s free.
She’ll never have to worry again ‘cuz they’ll never catch me,
Me and my pony…
Me and my pony.

Oh I don’t care what them pony keepers say
‘Cuz I ran away with Pony yesterday.
Now she’s reading Emma Goldman while my toes are in the water.
I say, “It sure is hot.” She says, “It’s only getting hotter.”
And the Coho salmon cry, “We can improve.
If only we were strong enough to make this concrete move.”
So Pony says, “I’m strong; I’ll kick the dam down with my hooves.”
Three cheers for Pony!
Three cheers for Pony…

And we don’t care what the pony keepers say.
We’re gonna free all of the ponies today.
We’ll go their late at night while the guards are all asleep.
One by one will sneak them out without making a peep,
And with this pony army we’ll fight back.
One of the ponies says he’ll teach us how to hack
Into a computer that controls all the exports from Iraq.
Viva los ponies!
Viva los ponies!

And we don’t care what the timber companies say.
We’re gonna stop a clear cut today.
We’ll chain ourselves to trees in protection of our Mother
From the loggers who kill forests—they will never kill another
‘Cuz we’re pouring sugar right into their gas tanks
While ponies across town are taking shits inside of banks,
And all the trees’ll love us and they’ll shower us with thanks.
God bless you ponies!
God bless you ponies!

And we don’t care what those bourgie bastards say
We’re gonna steal a corporation today.
We’ll burn it to the ground with the use of dynamite.
They may put up some walls, but we’re putting up a fight,
Despite those rich white men who beg our pardons.
We’ll burn this fucker down and plant a garden.
I say we’ll burn this fucker down and plant a garden
For me and Pony,
Me and my pony…
Me and my pony.
