One trick pony one trick
Is all that horse can do
He does one trick only
It's the principal source of his revenue
Steps in the spotlight feel the heat
Of his heart come rising through
See how he dances
See how he loops from side to side
See how he prances
The way his hoofs just seem to glide
He's just, just a one trick pony that's how he is
But he turns that trick with pride

He makes it look so easy
He looks so clean
He moves like one of the gods
Immaculate machines
He makes me think about
All these extra moves I make
All of the herky jerky motion
And the bag of tricks it takes
To get me through my working day
He's a one trick pony

He's a one trick pony
He either fails or he succeeds
He gives his testimony
Then he relaxes in the week
He's got one trick to last a lifetime.
That's all a pony needs

One trick pony
One trick pony
One trick pony
One trick pony
