I love to ride my pony,
Without her I would be so lonely.
She's the best friend I've ever had,
Buttons' N Bows is hardly ever bad.
Her eyes are so friendly and warm,
When I ride her she has beautiful form.
She's so graceful, yet strong.
I know with Buttons I'll never go wrong.
My pony Buttons is so smart,
She can be ridden or driven with a cart.
Together we have participated in many shows,
To come back home with a lot of ribbons, trophies and bows.
Buttons' best friend, is a pony called Ollie,
Who Sharon McCarthur happens to ride, by golly.
The four of us love to ride all day,
Though when we come home, we still have lots of energy to play
