Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wooden horse
Gaily they played each summer's day
Warriors both of course
One little chap then had a mishap
Broke off his horse's head
Wept for his toy then cried with joy
As his young playmate said



Did you think I would leave you crying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Jack and don't be crying
I can go just as fast with two
When we grow up we'll both be soldiers
And our horses will not be toys
And I wonder if we'll remember
When we were two little boys


Long years had passed, war came so fast
Bravely they marched away
Cannon roared loud, and in the mad crowd
Wounded and dying lay
Up goes a shout, a horse dashes out
Out from the ranks so blue
Gallops away to where Joe lay
Then came a voice he knew


Did you think I would leave you dying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon be flying
I can go just as fast with two
Did you say Joe I'm all a-tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys


Do you think I would leave you dying
There's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon by flying
Back to the ranks so blue
Can you feel Joe I'm all a tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys

    I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause! I will travel across the land, searching far and wide, teach pokemon to understand the power that's inside! Pokemon!

    When my son was a tiny baby and would cry i would pick him up and sing this to him. But i sang "did you think that mommy'd leave you crying there when there's room in my arms for you". Now i sing it to my great grand son.

    My dad used to sit on the end of my bed singing this song to me, always felt safe. It brings back so much emotion and a tear to my eye, as havnt spoken to him in over 10 years.
