The Pony Man (Album Version) - Gordon Lightfoot

When it's midnight on the meadow

And the cats are in the shed

 

And the river tells a story

At the window by my bed

 

If you listen very closely

Be as quiet as you can

 

In the yard you'll hear him

It is the pony man

 

We're always there to greet him

When he tumbles into town

 

He leads a string of ponies

Some are white and some are brown

 

And they never seem to kick or bite

They only want to play

 

And they live on candy apples

Instead of oats and hay

 

And when we're all assembled

He gives a soft command

 

And we climb aboard our ponies

As in a row the stand

 

Then down the road we gallop

And across the fields we fly

 

And soon we all go sailing off

Into the midnight sky

 

And as we gaily rock along

Beside a ripplin' sea

 

There's Tom 'n Dick 'n Sally

And Mary Joe and me

 

And the pony man is leading

Cause he's travelled here before

 

And he gives a whoop and a holler

At Mr. Moon's front door

 

And then we stop to rest a while

Where the soda river glides

 

Up to the slip comes a pirate ship

To take us for a ride

 

And the pony man's the captain

And the children are the crew

 

And we go in search of treasure

And laugh the whole night through

 

And when the hold is filled with gold

And the sails begin to strain

 

And the deck's piled high with apple pie

We head for port again

 

Then down the whirling starcase

So swift our ponies fly

 

And we're safely in our beds again

When the sunbeams kiss the sky

 

When it's midnight on the meadow

And the cats are in the shed

 

And the river tells a story

At the window by my bed

 

If you listen very closely

Be as quiet as you can

 

In the yard you'll hear him

It is the pony man
