Words and Music by Cbas. T. Ellis.
When bright is de day and so pure de morning air,
And birds sing their lay from almost ev'rywhere,
'Tis then dot we ride, such a jolly, happy pair,
Und Casper, dot's me, he vos de pony.
Don't be 'fraid, dis pony he vas great and toney,
Und he'll ride you 'round with grace and style.
Carrying baby on my back, you'll hear the whip go crack, crack, crack!
Oh, what delight for my boy so bright, while playing pony with Caspar!
Running up and down the hill, hear those bells so clear and shrill!
Oh! what fun to have a good run, while playing pony with Caspar!
Around pony's neck little baby's arms are wound;
He thinks that he might go sprawling on the ground,
But pony will keep him up there all safe and sound.
He'll see that no danger comes to baby.
Don't he 'fraid, dis pony, he was great and toney,
Und he'll ride you with grace and style.- Chorus.
