A song of retribution by a woman on a man - a completely true story - I really did burn his rocking horse!

Composition and songwriting, guitar, vocals - Chandra Moon
Guitars, production - Richard Bloom

This is the true story of Eddie's rocking horse - he kept putting off collecting his stuff so in the end in a fit of fury I burned all his belongings - this song is the story of that fire!
Rocking Horse

Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Consumed in the ashes of a bad divorce

I told you to come and collect your things,
A box of books, a shirt that clings
A fencing mask, a bottle of pills
Your favourite suit and a pile of bills

Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Consumed in the ashes of a bad divorce

Stashed in attic all covered in dust
Photographs, diaries, letters of lust.
I gave you time, when you didn’t return
I lit the match and I watched it burn

Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Consumed in the ashes of a bad divorce

Spring turned to Autumn then in the Winter
I dragged it down hands full of splinters
I knew next day I whould be ashamed
But my I threw it on and fed the flames

I watched it staring from the embers
Its red eyes glared but I couldn’t remember
What I’d ever seen in you, what I’d ever seen in you
I watched it staring from the embers
Its red eyes glared but I couldn’t remember
What I’d ever seen in you, what I’d ever seen in you

Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Consumed in the ashes of a bad divorce

Rocking horse, rocking horse
Had you heard that I burned your rocking horse
Rocking horse, rocking horse…………………
There’s nothing so bad as a bad divorce
