The Lyrics

no, i wasn't one of those kids who wanted a pony for christmas christmas threatened
no...peace of mind today
if i don't get a shetland
oh yeah...i'm gonna flail away
oh...mama...let's get it sought today
do as you ought today
oh...papa...let's get it bought today
do as you're taught today
. my ire is creepin'
i'm very steamed today
stern as a red hot moppet
hell, yeah...i'm insane
cripes...mama....let's get it bought today
my temper's hot today
cripes...papa...let's hit the lot today
my mind is fraught today
ooh...i'm not just threatenin'
i'm set to gripe today
gimme...gimme shetland
or i'm gonna flail away
oh...mama...let's do it quick today
or i will kick away
oh...papa...i'll hold my breath today
till there is death today
i tell you....mama...papa
i'll have a hissy day
i'll have a pissy day pet, i'll have today
and don't forget the hay...get the hay...get the hay

Ha Ha! 555! Brings to mind this episode:
Jerry: I know, I hated those kids. In fact, I hate anyone that ever had a pony when they were growing up.
Manya: (very indignantly) I had a pony! (very uncomfortable silence)
Jerry: Well, I didn't, uh, really mean a pony, per se.
Manya: When I was a little girl in Poland, we all had ponies. My sister had pony, my cousin had pony. So, what's wrong with that?

I think, Alvin, you perfectly encapsulated the haunted, desolate feeling I got as a kid when I realized there be another pony-less Christmas ..... It's been about four years since you posted anything, but it was well worth the wait
