My Lovely Horse

Eurovision used to be a big family occasion in our household when I was a kid – Abba and Buck’s Fizz and Lynsey de Paul’s Rock Bottom. And even early on in our married life, we’d invite friends around for an evening of excitement. But since it’s become political it is just not as fun. So I only briefly watched it on Saturday night and was lucky enough to catch Jedward. Which got me thinking about the best Eurovison song of them all – from Episode 5 of Series 2 of Father Ted, ‘A Song for Europe’.
Father Ted and Father Dougal

Where are you going, with your fetlocks blowing in the wind?
The sublime lyrics to My Lovely Horse have stuck in my mind all these years but I can’t remember any from Saturday…
