“One Trick Pony” Lyrics

One trick pony, one trick is all that horse can do
One trick only, it’s the principal source of his revenue

But when he steps into the spotlight, you can feel the heat of his heart come shining through

See how he dances
See how he moves from side to side
See how he prances
See how his hooves just seem to glide

He’s just a one trick pony, that’s all he is
But he turns that trick with pride

Moves so easy, moves so clean
Looks like God’s immaculate machine
He makes me think about all of these extra moves I make, oh
This herky jerky motion and the bag of tricks it takes
To get me through my working day
One trick pony

Just a one trick pony, that’s all he is

Moves so easy, moves so clean
Looks like God’s immaculate machine
He makes me think about all of these extra moves I make, oh
This herky jerky motion and the bag of tricks it takes
To get me through my working day
One trick pony

One trick pony, one trick is all that pony needs
He gives his testimony, then he relaxes in the weeds
He’s just a one trick pony, that’s all he is
But that’s all that pony needs
