The Lyrics

There were horseflies

Well we bought a new house
With a horse in the back
And when he said a few words
I nearly had an attack
In the stable (in the stable)

And he talks to me

I hope I’m not crazy
But I don’t tell my wife
‘Cause the conversation’s better
So I spend my life
In the stable (in the stable)

People, don't you understand
A horse needs a helping hand
Or he'll pick up the phone and dial it out one day
I’ve got a neighbor, he
Is just too blind to see,
I hope he’ll always turn his head
And look the other way

And he talks to me

Well a horse is a horse of course of course
And no one can talk to a horse of course
In the stable (In the stable)

And he shakes his head

He’s a palomino with a pretty mane
And his voice kinda quivers when he says my name
In the stable (in the stable)

Then one day in desperation
This garrulous steed breaks away
He goes to Dodger Stadium, steals third base,
I stand there with that look on my face…

Into home he slides

Go right to the source and ask the horse
He’ll give you the answer that you endorse
In the stable (in the stable)

And he moves his lips

Peanut butter might make him do that
Next time I move I hope it’s only a cat
In the stable (in the stable)

There were horseflies…

I liked how you incorporated the original theme song. Fits very well. A 5 is a 5, of course, of course.
