			There once was a very famous man 

			       F                 C7               F
			On his famous horse he'd ride through the land 

			    Gm                          Dm*
			The people used to see him everywhere 

			        A                              Dm
			When he died, they put a statue in the square 


			    (hooray) 


			     F
			Here comes the Equestrian Statue 

			C7              F
			Prancing up and down the square 

         
			Little old ladies stop 'n' say 

			G          A
			"Well, I declare!"

			Once a month on a Friday there's a man 

			       F       C7            F
			With a mop and bucket in his hand 

			   Gm                            Dm*
			To him it's just another working day 

			      A                               Dm
			So he whistles as he rubs and scrubs away 


			    (hooray)

			It's a sight to bring you joy, you feel so gay 

			         Dm    Dm/C    Bb       C7      F
			And it's guaranteed to brighten up your day 

			        A7
			If it's grey

          I don't think we have equestrian statues here in southern California. There is a statue of Mickey and Walt at Disneyland... hmmm, there must be a horse one somewhere, though, the Wild West, and all that...
