Moira Cameron Lyr Req: Delaney's Donkey (William Hargreaves) (20) RE: Delaney's Donkey 11 Jul 97

I know slightly different lyrics:

For the verse--

It kicked her in the bustle and it laughed 'hee, haw'.
The Whigs and Conservatives were uttering superlatives;
Liberals and Tories all got into place.
They stood there in unity, helping the community,
The day Delaney's Donkey ran the half mile race.

and the last verse--Police and auxiliary, the garrison artillery,
The organist McGivern and the lifeguard too;
They seized it and harried it, they picked it up and carried it,
Cheered it, steered it, to the winning place...
