GRETCHEN

Gretchen, the young wife of a count
Had a gelding for a fox hunting mount

She rode her first ride turned to the side
What a beauty this fox hunting bride

She wore black boots shiny polished and high
A black woven tie, and pants with room at the thigh

She was chesty this countess that rode
When her horse switched to fast mode

She bounced both out of whack
And ended with both eyes turning black

Her side saddle switched to the other side
What a site this disheveled fox hunting bride

She ended the hunt, by taking the brunt
Of the laughter, all kidding aside
