The Ballad of Hubert's Wheel
Lyrics by Suzy Red, Sung by Ted Newman

Verse 1:
Life was hard in prehistoric times,
Moving things was tough.
Sledges drug across the land
And pulling them was rough.
There our boy named Hubert lived.
He worked for dear old Dad.
But his future in Dad's hauling job
Made young Hubert sad.

Verse 2:
To pull his little loaded sledge
His onager was there.
The onager's a little horse
With brains and brawn to spare.
Hubert called his horsie Hodja.
Hodja cheered him on,
Watched him work,
Clapped his hooves,
And guarded dusk 'til dawn.

Chorus:
Hubert invents the wheel!
He is the hero of the world!
Hubert invents the wheel!
Come on and give the wheel a whirl.
Moving things is fun at last
Sledges are a thing of the past
Hurrah for Hubert!
He's our guy!
Come give the wheel a try!

Chorus:
Hubert invents the wheel!
He is the hero of the world!
Hubert invents the wheel!
Come on and give the wheel a whirl.
Moving things is fun at last
Sledges are a thing of the past
Hurrah for Hubert!
He's our guy!
Come give the wheel a try!
