Alex Massie

A Horse Outside

Text settings

Clearly, this song should top the Irish Christmas charts. The ghosts of Yeats, Kavanagh and all the other lads have nothing on the Rubberbandits. The Plain People of Ireland have a horse outside and they're going to ride it. Warning: this song contains a

considerable amount of

huge quantity of profanity. Warning too: if you're Irish or have spent heaps of time in Ireland you may also find it very funny.
