“I had a Little Hobby Horse” is a beautiful nursery rhyme. The term ‘Hobby Horse’ dates back to the era of King Henry VIII of England. Henry and his court enjoyed all forms of gambling and King Henry introduced a stable of horses bred specifically for racing and these were referred to as his ‘Hobby Horses’ – from the Middle English word hobi or hobyn meaning a small horse.
Lyrics to “I had a Little Hobby Horse”
I had a little hobby horse,
and it was dapple grey;
its head was made of pea-straw,
its tail was made of hay.
I sold it to an old woman
for a copper groat
and I’ll not sing my song again
without a new coat.
