Narrator: "Lucky had been to the hospital to be healed.

Some changelings tricked him, and the pony fell into the turntable well.

Now, Lucky was as good as new, but he was still worried about changelings."

Lucky: "I'd rather not use them."

Narrator: "He said to himself.

But the changelings sang songs rude and loud.

The Cockatrice, their leader, led the chorus."

Cockatrice and Changelings: "Lucky' no use at all, thinks he's very clever, says that he can manage us, that's the best joke ever! When he orders us about, with the greatest folly, we just push him down the well, Pop goes old Lucky!"

Narrator: "Cheese Sandwich, Braeburn and Spike were shocked."

Cheese Sandwich, Spike and Braeburn: "Be quiet!"

Narrator: "They ordered.

But they couldn't be everywhere, and everywhere they weren't, the changelings began again."

Changelings: "Lucky' no use at all, thinks he's very clever, says that he can manage us, that's the best joke ever!"

Narrator: "At last, the animals gave up."

Cheese Sandwich, Spike and Braeburn: "We're sorry, Lucky."

Narrator: "They said."

Lucky: "It's realy my fault."

Narrator: "Said Lucky sadly."

Lucky: "I shouldn't have fallen in the turntable well."

Narrator: "Tank, the Tortoise, felt sorry for Lucky, too.

Next morning, he spoke to Night Light."

Tank: "I'm worried, Mr. Night Light. This disrespect for animals, when is it going to end?"

Night Light: "Who knows?"

Narrator: "Sighed Night Light."

Tank: "I've got a plan, Mr. Night Light. May I stay here today and help Mr. Lucky? We are both great western, and must stand together."

Night Light: "Certainly, Tank."

Narrator: "Replied Night Light, and puffed away.

Soon, Tank was explaining his plan.

Braeburn: "Goodness Gracious, Tank, I don't think you should suggest such a thing to Lucky."

Narrator: "But Lucky interrupted."

Lucky: "No, Braeburn, Tank's right. It's really my fault. I must put this trouble right."

Tank: "I meant no disrespect, you understand."

Lucky: "Of course not, Tank. Anyway, driver says the same, and he's arranged it with the station master."

Braeburn: "Very well, Lucky."

Narrator: "Conceited Braeburn."

Braeburn: "But I must hurry; my passengers will be waiting. Good luck!"

Lucky: "So long!"

Narrator: "Smiled Lucky bravely, but he felt dreadfully nervous inside.

Lucky marshalled the worst changelings two by two."

Tank: "That's the way, Mr. Lucky."

Narrator: "Whispered Tank."

Tank: "And if you leave that Cockatrice till' last, then you'll have him behind you, and you can bump him if he starts his nonsense."

Cockatrice: "Hold back, hold back!"

Narrator: "Whispered the cockatrice."

Cockatrice: "And pass the word to the others."

Narrator: "The silly changelings giggled.

But Lucky knew what to do; there was plenty of sand on the ground and his paws gripped splendidly. He gave a great heave."

Cockatrice: "Oooh!"

Narrator: "Groaned the cockatrice."

Cockatrice: "I don't like this!"

Braeburn: "Go on!"

Narrator: "Yelled Braeburn."

Braeburn: "Well done, boy, well done!"

Cockatrice: "Ohhh!"

Narrator: "Wailed the cockatrice."

Cockatrice: "I'm coming apart!"

Narrator: "And he did.

Then there was trouble."

Princess Celestia: "Well, Lucky, so you don't know your own strength, is that it?"

Lucky: "No, no, Princess."

Narrator: "Said Lucky nervously.

Princess Celestia inspected the cockatrice."

Princess Celestia: "As I've thought; rotten feathers, rusty bones. Maybe if we put your back together, you'll earn yourself a better name."

Narrator: "Nowadays, Lucky only takes the changelings when the other animals are busy.

But they're always quick to warn each other,"

Changelings: "Take care with Mr. Lucky, if you play tricks on him, you'll never be the same changeling again!"

Narrator: "The cockatrice has learned his lesson, and says nothing at all."
