    Thank you Portia! I must, of course, thank you, DMK, HSM, and VTRider for being my inspiration! All the parodies are excellent!

    I'm going to try my best to do this. Sung to the tune of Tomorrow from Annie.

    I'll win that class tomorrow
    Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, I will pin
    I'm thinkin' about tomorrow
    When I'll nail all eight jumps
    And each lead change
    Til I win

    When I'm stuck a horse
    That's tired and lazy
    I just stick in my spurs
    And curse and pray

    The judge will pick me tomorrow
    So I gotta ride hard til tomorrow Then I'll say

    Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
    I'll win first tomorrow
    It's always a class away!

    Another great one!

    Somebody has to save this thread and we can have our own COTH BB Songbook!

    Sorry to chime in so late but am only sporadically online...these are phenomenal parodies [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img] So where is Part 1?? And where were you all in the Janis Joplin/haiku days??? Although the latter cannot hold a candle to the bright flame of your collective creativity... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    With apologies to Shania Twain - You're
    Still the Spot I Run To ;-)

    Looks like we made it
    Look how far we left my horsie.
    We mighta took the long spot
    We knew we'd get there somehow (or not)

    They said, I'll bet they cannot make it
    But just look at us rolling along
    Leaving out strides, why's he getting strong?

    It's still the spot I run to
    The one I wanna lean to
    It's the spot that makes my trainer cry

    It's still the run that I do
    Jumping off one leg - whoo hoo!
    I'm glad my helmet is approved.

    Ain't nothing better
    Than nice sturdy English leather
    My trainer says I do not listen
    That is why I am still missing

    They said, I bet they cannot make it
    But just look at us moving along
    Can't feel my arms, he's getting strong

    <sappy bridge music, overlayed with the
    sounds of shrieking, profanity and finally
    an exasperated trainer grumbling
    "That was terrible!">

    So glad we made it.
    Damned long to the last oxer my horsie.

    Big pat to the all the long-suffering amateur horses...

    Here's another one that was posted on the Alice Made Me Do It thread, but it really belongs here in our growing song collection. It is the first one written by a horse to a horse. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    By The Arch Man:

    Ja, I'm the Renaissance Horse - jumper, scooter, bucker, lyricist
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In honour of my beloved, Alice, I have adapted Jimi Henrix's "Foxy Lady". I know the song only because mein mutter plays it, very loudly, when speeding on dirt roads to HITS.

    Foxy Alice
    You know you are a cute little butt breaker
    Foxy yeah,
    And you know you are a sweet little fohlen maker
    Foxy

    I wanna take you in my paddock, yeah
    I won't do you no harm cause I'm a geld-a
    You've got to be all mein, all mein
    ooh Foxy Alice
    Foxy, Foxy

    Now-a I see you trot into the show ring
    oh Foxy
    You make me wanna rear and-a neigh
    Foxy, oh baby prick your ear forward now
    I've made up my mind my marish fraulein,
    I'm tired of wasting all my precious time
    You've got to be all mine, all mine

    ooh, Foxy Alice
    Ooh, Foxy Alice, neigh, neigh
    You trot so good, Foxy
    oh yeah Foxy
    yeah, give us some oats, Foxy
    Foxy Alice
    Foxy Alice
    Foxy Alice

    Nasty (Mares)

    Gimme a lead!

    Trottin' in the warmup ring
    Thinkin� nasty thoughts
    A tail that swishes back and forth
    Oh you turn me off
    That's right, let me tell you

    Nasty, nasty mares don't change their lead
    Oh, you nasty mares
    Nasty, nasty mares don't ever change
    Oh, you nasty mares

    I don't like no nasty mare
    I don't like those nasty bucks, ooh neigh
    The only nasty thing I like is the nasty crop
    Will this one do?
    A-ha, I know

    Neigh

    Nasty, nasty mares don't change their lead
    Oh, you nasty mares
    Nasty, nasty mares don't ever change
    Oh, you nasty mares

    Nasty, nasty mares, give me your nasty buck
    Oh, you nasty mares
    Nasty, nasty mares, let me see your nasty ears pin
    Oh, you nasty mares

    I can learn to sit to this
    Sit up!

    I'm not a hunter (no)
    I just want some impulsion (That's right)
    So close the legs if you want me to respond
    'Cause Chestnut is my middle name
    But my last name is Mare
    No, my first name ain't Regumate
    It's Bute
    Miss Bute, when I'm nasty

    Nasty, nasty mares don't change their lead
    Oh, you nasty mares
    Nasty, nasty mares don't ever change
    Oh, you nasty mares

    Nasty mares don't change their leads
    Oh, you nasty mares don't change their leads
    Nasty, don't listen to the leg
    Ohn you nasty mares

    I love this part

    HEY!
    Who's that pickin� to the jump? (Nasty mares!)
    Who's that in that nasty bit? (Nasty mares!)
    Who's that eatin� that nasty jump? (Nasty mares!)
    Who's that jammin� on the brakes? (Nasty mares!)

    Riders, nasty mares
    Don't change their lead
    Oh, you nasty mares

    Thanks AAJumper! It's not half as good, though, as your Eagles tribute. "HITS Show California" was our morning guffaw! It's brilliantly funny! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Thanks Heidi! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    And now, from the Rocky Mountain Warmblood Collection, tribute to John Denver....Leaving From the Long Spot (to the tune of Leaving on a Jet Plane)

    All my tack is on
    I'm ready to go
    I'm standing here in the grooming stall
    I've lunged so many circles I could cry
    But the dawn is breaking
    It's early morn
    The judge is waiting
    Blowin' the horn
    Already I'm so nervous I could shy

    (Chorus)
    So pat me and give to me
    Tell me you won't pull on me
    Don't hold me like you'll never let me go
    'Cause I'm leavin' from the long spot
    Don't know when I'll touch down again
    Oh babe, I hate to chip

    There's so many times I've let you down
    So many times I've played around
    I'll tell you now I promise not to buck
    Every change of lead, I change for you
    Every course I jump I'll jump for you
    When we're done they'll bring your winning blue

    Chorus

    Now the time has come to leave you
    Hold on tight and just don't snag me
    Close your eyes, I'll be on my way
    Dream about the days to come
    When I won't find the spot alone
    About the time, I won't have to say

    Chorus

    I am in absolute awe of the raw talent of my fellow BB'ers! Truly! Please continue!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
