Тяжела и неказиста будет жизнь кавалериста.

Доказательство тому - вот эта милейшая "Песенка конного полицейского" и еще более симпатичный клип -

Arrogant Worms - Mountie Song

When I was a kid I wanted to grow up and be a cop in a
province town or county
I thought it would be great if somedy i could be a
I wanted to beat up crooks and make arrests because taht's
part of the profession
But now I just sit on my horse and tell American tourists the
parliament's in session
I really don't look good in red and my stupid hat flies off my
head in every parade
I'm young and strong and have no fear but now I'm spending
my career in Motorcades

I wanna enforce the law, I wanna wear normal clothes
I don't wanna have to smile for diplomat's home videos
I'm good at workin' real hard, I should have joined the Coast
Oh no the RCMP, is not the life for me

I used to think that a Mountie had to be honest, loyal, humble
strong and thrifty
But even though we don't break ranks we get no thanks, they
took us off the fifty (dollar bill)
On Sussex Drive in hallowed halls we act like gaurds in
shopping malls, it's such a pain
Like someone's plotting to kill the minister of
Sports and Recreation now that's insane
Sometimes I just wanna puke Sgt. Preston of the Yukon
Dudley Dooright's such a jerk
And though he tries with all his heart, my horse couldn't catch a
shopping cart
Somedays I hate to go to work
