In water still
The night I met the pony
It was so dark that I could hardly see
It smelled so sweet you know who and Joanie
So many butterflies one could not see

Bm C          D      G
We all could feel desire
 Bm  C        D
Took off in flight
Bm  C      D        G
It was hotter than fire
 Bm   C        D
Then came the light

Oooh, oooh
Oooh, ah, now smell the heat
The dancing pony unwrapped his wings
To dry off Joanie
The pony he grew in size
In thunder and rain
And finally realized
A what he was and what he does
And what he couldn't say

And left to kiss the cheek of Mother Nature
Nobody here can be denied such things
Make the ladies you love, come honey
No butterfly should be denied its wings

Bm C          D        G
   He were a kick ass rocking horse
Bm C        D
   He like a hell bent tied to the Gavin Pole
Bm C        D         G
   It was a one time fantasy
Bm C        D
   I got the bare bones, fly into the Holy Land
   Bare back, flying like a ruddered man
   Nightmares, and he can't hold
   a candle to my dreams

We rode the night
And took to wing
It was so alright
It was everything
We flew into burning skies
The thunder and rain
And finally realized
What he is and what he does
And what he couldn't say

Oh, no, no
Took off in flight
Oh, no, no
Then came the light

Flashback, something coming over me
No sweat, one time fantasy
Bare boned, and all that is the wind it seems
Hell, who's the chick
That rides into my dreams

No livery
No stable lights
No try to please
Nobody's eyes
We'll never see us again
In time it'll pass
And where did it all begin
But all in good time
Somebody shot an arrow

Now tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me never
Waking me because you're cold sometimes
Being seduced will be your own pleasures
What be his muse may be what he must find

He was a kick ass rocking horse
He was a one horned, unicornucopia
Two, two in Utopia
Three star, verge into infinity
Na na na na na
Oooh, oooh
