Song Lyrics

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

We all could feel desire

Took off in flight

It was hotter than fire

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 it`s wings

He were a kick ass rocking horse

He like a hell bent tied to the Gavin Pole

It was a one time fantasy

I got the bare bones, fly into the Holy Land

Bare back, flyin` 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

Wakin` me `cause you`re cold somtimes

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...
