Every duke and earl and peer is here.
Everyone who should be here is here.
What a smashing, positively dashing spectacle ~
The Ascot opening day!
At the gate are all the horses
Waiting for the cue to fly away.
What a gripping, absolutely ripping moment
At the Ascot opening day!
Pulses rushing, faces flushing,
Heartbeats speed up,
I have never been so keyed up.
Any second now they'll begin to run.
Hark! a bell is ringing,
They are springing forward.
Look, it has begun!
What a frenzied moment that was!
Didn't they maintain an exhausting pace?
'Twas a thrilling, absolutely chilling running of
The Ascot opening race
