Did you think you knew the game?
Did you think that fame and fortune's
All that I had in my head?
Bang you're dead
It's not a game I'm gonna play with you

Did you think I'm high and dry?
Did you think I'd hide from the
Tentacles of the deaf dumb and blind
Their poison inks behind me
At the bottom of the sea
And your criticism doesn't worry me
And I'll sing

Ra ra for red rocking horse
Ride on over all remorse
Ra ra for red rocking horse
Who won the course
Despite the fact that
No one bet him

Get out
Did you think you'd tie me up
Did you think that I would
Help but dance for your piece of paper
They'll tame you and set you
To licking all the foes
Zap! pow!

Did you think that I don't feel
Did you think that I'd simply heal up
After each ego beating
We can't go on meeting
This once in every year
And in the meantime if we all stand up
And cheer him up here
Ra ra for red rocking horse
Ride on over all remorse
Ra ra for red rocking horse
Who won the course
Despite the fact that
No one bet him

They all took their money out
And they laid it down, down
On the bright colored manes
They all took their money out
But they laid it down, down
On the different names to ours

Ra ra for red rocking horse
Ride on over all remorse
Ra ra for red rocking horse
Who won the course
Despite the fact that
No one bet him

Ra ra for red rocking horse
Ride on over all remorse
Ra ra for red rocking horse
Who won the course
Despite the fact
