lyrics

Mama's little baby loves Shetland Ponies
Mama's little baby loves Shetland Bread.
Mama's little baby loves Shetland Ponies
Mama's little baby loves Shetland Bread.
Two little ponies sittin' in a manger
One of 'em's sick and the other one's dead.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor told her
Get them ponies some Shetland Bread.
Bring out your sick!
Bring out your dead!
Mama's gonna make some Shetland Bread.
Bring out your sick!
Bring out your dead!
Mama's gonna make some Shetland Bread.

I was a Shetland Pony, once.
I was a Shetland Pony, once.
But I walked away from my green pastures.
I walked away from my green pastures.
'Cause everything was made of grass.
Made of grass.

I was a Simese Fightin' Fish.
I was a Simese Fightin' Fish.
But I swam around and around in circles.
I swam around and around in circles.
Cause everything was made of glass
Made of glass.

I was an orthapedist, once.
I was an orthapedist, once.
But I walked away from a very lucrative practice.
I walked away from a very lucrative practice.
Cause everything was made of bone,
Made of bone.

I was a big ol' junky, once.
I was a big ol' junky, once.
But I walked away from New York City.
I walked away from New York City.
Cause everything was made of stone.
Made of stone.

I was a Shetland Pony, once.
I was a Shetland Pony, once.
