I like beer and I like cheese 
I like the smell of a Westerly breeze 
But I like more than all of these 
To be on horseback 

[Chorus]
Hey and away we go 
Through the grass, cross the snow 
Big brown beastie 
Big brown face 
I'd rather be with you 
Than flying through space 

I like thunder and I like rain 
And open fires with roaring flames 
But if the thunder is in my brain 
I'd like to be on horseback 

Some like the city some the noise 
Some make chaos and others toys 
But if I was to have the choice 
I'd rather be on horseback 

[Chorus] 

Some find it strange to be here 
On this small planet with who knows where 
But when it's strange and full of fear 
It's nice to be on horseback 

Some are short and others tall 
Some hit there heads against the wall 
But it doesn't really matter at all 
When you happen to be on horseback 

[Chorus]

So if you feel a little glum 
To Hergest Ridge you should come 
In summer, winter, rain or sun 
It's good to be on horseback, hm 

[Chorus: x2] 

You know, I'd rather be on horseback
