Somewhere out on the prairie
Is the greatest cowboy that's ever been
When he lays his hands upon the ponies
They shutter with that understanding skin.
 
He says Ponies
Now Ponies don't you worry
I have not come to steal your fire away
I want to fly with you across the sunrise
And discover what begins each shinning day.
 
When the storm clouds in the west are quickly gathering
Ponies they run wildly before it rains
You'll see their sleek dark bodies ride quickly
You'll know the fire is burning in their brains.
 
He says Ponies
Now Ponies don't you worry
I have not come to steal your fire away
I want to fly with you across the sunrise
And discover what begins each shinning day.
