Just a though from a horse.

I have no wish to lug and carry

Not to anywhere from Tipperary

If I were a well bred horse

A fine one of course

Suited so right with a proper surrey.


Along Main Street I would eventually trot

I would like that, I'm thinking, a lot

To Limerick Junction

Where the trains there function

And my riders have tickets they've bought.


After departure of my passengers, there

Me driver would arrange a new fare

All around Tipperary

I'd be pulling my surrey

Acting like a horse with no care.


Ah, such a life would be fine

If I was a horse, high bred, in kind.

But I'm just a workhorse

Sway-backed, of course

And not from a fanciful line.
