Lonely Girls and Horses

Daddy takes her riding to a rented stable paddock
She goes there every weekend she’s never had a boyfriend
Forlorn and full of longing in a quilted green gullet
Sweeping out the stables replenishing the hay

Lonely girls and horses
Know how to keep a secret
They wait and watch and wonder
But they never dare to speak it
They go home
All alone

Rebecca is a posh girl from the nearby village
She wants to be a model hey!
She’s scared of eating no way
She really hates her bother he spiked her soup with maggots
Left home some years ago to teach English as a foreign language

Those Lonely girls and horses
Know how to keep a secret
They wait and watch and wonder how
And never dare to speak it
They go home all alone
They go home all alone

Her mother says you’re not like me
When I was your age I thought I was the bees knees
Always cheerful bright n gay
I put a smile on my face every day

Smoking I the hayloft dreaming of a boy
Daddy won’t approve of mummy might enjoy
Those dutiful and distant eyes riding across the fields at twilight
I’ll see you down the meadows alright
I’ll see you in another life

Of Lonely Girls and horses
I had my chance and blew it
Years ago I never told you so but I loved you and I think you knew it
Going home
All alone
They go home all alone

Lonely girls and horses
