Do not listen to the old tight thong! But the horses that I’ve got are fastidious, I didn’t live out my life, I won’t finish my song! I’ll allow them to drink, and this verse I will sing, - Just a little bit longer I will stay on the brink! A brutal twister like a flake will then sweep me off the palm, They will drag me on the sled through the morning in a welter, Slow your gallop, oh my horses, - make it peaceful and calm! And extend somewhat my journey to the last and final shelter! Slow it down, horses, calm your eagerness!
