The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Daylight Saving Time begins Sunday, March 9th in the US. I have it on good authority that these were the original lyrics to the song until Andy Williams turned it in to a saccharine Christmas tune that randomly talks about ghost stories.

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
With the sun later setting
And everyone telling you “Spring time is near”
It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
It’s the hap -happiest season of all
With those afternoon hackings and evening tack cleanings
With friends it’s a ball
It’s the hap – happiest season of all

There’ll be lessons and hacking
Cross country for schooling
And galloping out in the sun
There’ll be lots of wine drinking
And tales of the glories of
Long format long, long ago

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
For a gallop we’re going
With the sunshine glowing
When spring time is near
It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

There’ll be courses for walking
Big oxers for jumping
And Dressaging out in the sun
There’ll be scary trakheners
And tales of the ponies of summer camps long long ago

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
A’Riding we’re going
See the sun? It is glowing!
Like it should do all year
It’s The Most Wonderful Time
It’s The Most Wonderful Time
It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Happy Daylight Savings, EN! Don’t forget to jump ahead March 9th. (But only on your clocks, not over fences.)
