Das ist ein irisches Volkslied über die Liebe zu einem Tier.


Stewball was a good horse,
He wore a high head,
And the mane of his foretop
Was fine as silk thread.

I rode him in England,
I rode him in Spain,
And I never did lose, boys
I always did gain.

So come all you gamblers,
Wherever you are,
And don't bet your money
On that little grey mare.

Most likely she 'll stumble,
Most likely she 'll fall,
But you never woll lose, boys,
On my noble Stewball.

As they were a-riding
'bout halfway round
That grey mare she stumbled
And fell on the ground.

And 'way out yonder
Ahead of them all
Came a-prancing and a-dancing
My noble Stewball.

Stewball was a race horse,
And by the day he was mine
He never drank water
He always drank wine.
