One-Trick Pony

Am7
He's a one-trick pony
One trick is all that horse can do
       D7
He does  one trick only
                                     Am7
It's the principal source of his revenue
             G             D/F#
And when he steps into the spotlight
        F                    Bm7-5
You can feel the heat of his heart
             Am7
Come shining through

See how he dances
See how he loops from side to side
D7
See how he prances
                                Am7
The way his hooves just seem to glide
     G                D/F#
He's just a one-trick pony
               F
(that's all he is)
       Bm7-5                 Am7
But he turns that trick with pride

                C
     He makes it look so easy
  C9
     He looks so clean
  F
     He moves like God's
       F#dim
     Immaculate machine
                 C/G
     He makes me think about
               E7/G#
     All these extra moves I make
                  Am
     And all this herky-jerky motion
             C/Bb
     And the bag of tricks it takes
                      F
     To get me through my working day
  Bb9          Am7
     One-trick pony

He's a one-trick pony
He either fails or he succeeds
            D7
He gives his testimony
                       Am7
Then he relaxes in the weeds
             G               D/F#     F
He's got one trick to last a lifetime
           Bm7-5      Am7
But that's all a pony needs
(that's all he needs)

     He looks so easy
     He looks so clean
     He moves like God's
     Immaculate machine
     He makes me think about
     All these extra moves I make
     And all 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 pony, one-trick pony
One-trick pony
(take me for a ride)
