  • I'm sure there are other versions of this nursery rhyme, but here's the one I remember:

    I had a little pony,

    His name was Dapple Gray.

    I lent him to a lady

    To ride a mile away.

    She whipped him, she slashed him,

    She rode him through the mire.

    I would not lend my pony now

    For all the lady's hire.
