And we will never be alone again
‘Cause it doesn’t happen every day

Look at my horse
My horse is amazing
Give it a lick!
Mmm! It tastes just like raisins

Have a stroke of its mane
It turns into a plane
And then he turns back again
When you tug on his winky

Ooh, that’s dirty!
Do you think so?
Well, I better not show you where the lemonade is made
Sweet lemonade
Mmm, sweet lemonade
Sweet lemonade
Yeah, sweet lemonade

Get on my horse!
I’ll take you ’round the universe
And all the other places, too
I think you’ll find that the universe pretty much covers everything
Shut up, woman, get on my horse
