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!

This song contains excellent examples of both onomatopoeia AND alliteration!
