EQUESTRIAN TAXI
You have just got off the ferry and you’re waiting for the bus
You mustn’t be in a hurry and you mustn’t cause a fuss
There is no timetable you just stand and wait
You won’t know if they’re running early or if they’re running late
When the bus arrives you won’t believe your eyes
It’s a tractor with a trailer, what a great surprise

The trailer is fitted with seats of wood
For your nether regions that isn’t much good
You joggle and jiggle along the rough road
As the tractor hauls it’s heavy load
Winding up the harbour hill all is calm and time stands still
You reach the top then you alight
Now you’re in Sark and you feel alright

The Equestrian taxis wait in line
Whether in rain or warm sunshine ,no black cabs or Private hire
Horse and trap must be your desire
You Clip! Clop! to la Sablonerie
You meander along never in a hurry

Le Sablonerie is a Hotel on Little Sark
Where there’s bags of room for your Taxi to park
Sark is an Island with a special feel
You couldn’t call it anything except ideal
When I go to Sark I choose to walk
I meet Sarkees who love to talk
- about living in a feudal domain
The last of it’s kind so long may it reign

I love to walk across La Coupee and gaze down into the sea
At the rocks beaten by the lashing waves
That splash at the entrance to many caves
For many years time’s stood still
At the village at the top of Harbour Hill
