TALLY-HO!
 
div
 
I've had a great day today from eleven o' clock to four
I've sat on top of a very big horse and to give you my word I am sore
Hunting the foxes on horses with the ladies and lordships blue
I've been all over their private grounds
And all over their parquets too, all over their parquets too
Gone away, Tally Ho, but we never know where they go.

Chorus: But never again will I ever
Tally Ho, Tally Ho
I've bruises in every muscle
I've something as big as my bustle
And on my country door, I've left a note to say
You never meet me at the meet any more
Tally Ho, Gone away!


The Jolly old hunting Squire, he was making a lovely show
Till one of my bloodhounds he took a big lump out of his Ooh Tally Ho
Galloping down the road with the rest of the hounds I went
The horse got a stitch, threw me in a ditch
Then I knew I was on the scent, I knew I was on the scent
Tally Ho, I'm in pain, I shall never be able to sit down again.

Chorus: But never again will I ever
Tally Ho, Tally Ho
I've bruises in every muscle
I've something as big as my bustle
And on my country door, I've left a note to say
You never meet me at the meet any more
Tally Ho, Gone away!
