This is the Way the Ladies Ride

Lyrics

(Traditional chant)

This is the way the ladies ride:
Tri, tre, tre, tree, Tri, tre, tre, tree!
This is the way the ladies ride:
Tri, tre, tre, tree, Tri, tre, tre, tree!

This is the way the gentlemen ride:
Gallop-a-trot, Gallop-a-trot!
This is the way the gentlemen ride:
Gallop-a-gallop-a-trot!

This is the way the farmers ride:
Hobbledy-hoy, Hobbledy-hoy!
This is the way the farmers ride:
Hobbledy hobbledy-hoy!
And down into a ditch!

This can be done with a baby bouncing on the adult’s knees. Each verse has more vigorous bouncing.
