lyrics

ROCKING HORSE MENDER

Mr Booth is the rocking horse mender
Mending rocking horses all day
And the children come to his workshop in a parade of dapple and grey

And it smells of leather and polish
And it looks like oil and paint
And the horses sit on their rockers all in a line and patiently wait
Patiently wait

Painted stallions from country shows
Fairground nags in bells and bows
They fell off the carousel
But now they’re doing well
Just look into their eyes and you can tell

At the dawn of the 20th century
Every child would dream of the day
They would have a horse of their own, imagine the thought of riding away

(la la la)

Painted stallions from country shows
Fairground nags in bells and bows
They fell off the carousel
But now they’re doing well
Just look into their eyes and you can tell

Mr Booth is the rocking horse mender
Mending rocking horses all day
And the children come to his workshop in a parade of dapple and grey
Dapple and grey
