Millie and Max tell us about Horsey Horsey
‘Horsey Horsey’ is a comedy song written in 1937 by Paddy Roberts, Elton Box, Desmond Cox and Ralph Butler.
The original version contained two verses about a farmer on his way home from a market stopping at a pub called the ‘Load of Hay’ for ‘just one’ drink.
After three or four, he can’t help singing the chorus all the way home!
*DID YOU KNOW?
This song contains excellent examples of both onomatopoeia AND alliteration!
