The Pantomime Horse Trilogy: Part 3
A great exercise for your pantomime horse in the long, lazy off- season!
We hope you will enjoy the experience as you hear:
“The Tale of a Horse!”
The Pantomime Horse Trilogy: Part 2
Here is the second episode of the Pantomime Songs Limited Trilogy of sketches for your pantomime horse to enjoy during the off-season to prevent horse-boredom setting in and promote equine fitness. In this scene we see that classic tear-jerking moment when a cowboy has to say “Goodbye!” to his four-legged friend.
How will the horse respond? What will the cowboy do next?
Who really was the man who shot Liberty Valance?
Enjoy the second act, starring your very own pantomime horse, in:
“A Cowboy Was Saying Goodbye to his Horse!”
Next: keep a look out for the concluding part of the Trilogy: “The Tale of a Horse!”
The Pantomime Horse Trilogy: Part 1
So, what does your pantomime horse do after a tough panto season, treading the boards? Relax on the beach at Sandown? Do some temp work, hacking on Dartmoor? Or perhaps there is a very rewarding contract on a stud farm…!
Well, while he/she has time to enjoy an alternative occupation, perhaps entertaining you in those long summer evenings round the campfire, we at Pantomime Songs Limited have some distractions to suggest; a little exercise in the form of three, well honed sketches, starring your very own pantomime horse in a Western setting.
The first episode finds our hero in a very unusual situation! Brokeback Mountain was never like this!
Next: watch out for Episode 2:
“A Cowboy Was Saying Goodbye to his Horse”!
A Mother’s Lament
The well known Mother’s Lament – otherwise know as Your Baby Has Gone Down the Plughole, is given a rework in this new version from Pantomime Songs!
We have not been able to trace the author of the original version of this ditty. Ian Whitcomb, that authority on all things music hall says it is anonymous but may have been penned by Karl Marx.
Feel free to use our lyrics!

Poem – The Girl Wot Draws the Curtains
Here’s a nice little verse for the stage crew to do a turn in front of the curtains – always gets appluase!
I’m the girl wot draws the curtains
And I wanted just to say
That I’ll do my best this evening
So that everyone’s okay.
‘Cos if the theatre’s empty,
or if the seats are full,
The girl wot draws the curtains is always on the pull! …
