I was out in tha pasture
jest ridin' ma horse
Had been eatin' spaghetti
an' Whooshtershire Sauce

I could feel a wee tickle
down inside ma throat
so I dug out a lozenge
from out o' ma coat

Well, ma horse didn't like tha
'menthol de l'odour'
so he quickly turned into
'Le Jackass du Jour'

As he bucked an' contorted
I started ta choke
cuz ma 'lozenge du menthol'
got stuck in ma throat

Luckily I remembered
an ol' safety course -
did the Heimlich Maneuver
right there on tha horse

When I coughed up tha lozenge
I spat it straight out
but lamentably it blew
up ma horse's snout

That's about when he shifted
to gallopin' gear
As he took off full-speed
I grabbed hold of his ears

Tha last thing I remember
was jumpin' tha fence
n' ain't nobody seen hide
nor hair o' me since ... *Shock2*
