Where does an animal sleep
when the ground is wet?
Cows in the ballroom
chickens in the farmer's corvette

Sometimes a pony
Sometimes a pony
Sometimes a pony gets depressed

How does an animal see
once the sun is set?
Bandits in the capital
limited civilian unrest

Sometimes a pony
Sometimes a pony
Sometimes a pony gets depressed

What kind of animal
needs to smoke a cigarette?
Grass in the pasture
is sharper than a bayonette

Sometimes a pony
Sometimes a pony
Sometimes a pony gets depressed

Happiness won't leave me alone
says a bird in his nest
Get a load of this fuckin' view
its the best in the west

Sometimes a pony
Sometimes a pony
Sometimes a pony gets depressed

    General CommentAs a member of PETA, I am highly offended by any reference to depression concerning any animal, especially Ponys! I had a pony once, his name was Wilbur bc i read that book about Charlotte and that web which made me join PETA as an 8 year old but i couldnt write so my mom had to join me up but she likes meat and lied and never signed me up but i have been a member no matter what she did to screw up my childhood with her meat and leather shoes and uncaring heart and cheating ways
    but anyway, the pony was totally cool and my mom with all her meat eating decided to sell wilbur, the pony and to the circus freaks when they came in the spring and they rode him around when they needed rides and i never saw him again.
    this song makes me think of how depressed wilbur was when he had to leave me and join the circus and the meat eating freaks that work there.
    im in therapy now and dont like this song.
    Wilbur?
    come back
