Adele’s ‘Hello’ Equestrian Parody
The lyrics were written and performed by Kelly Jewell and the Video was directed and edited by Tony Hobden
I’ve been chasing you for 40 minutes Just to get you in
To go into ….Your stable
That I pay a fortune every month for
When you prefer to crap outside
Hello…Are you listening
Your temporary deafness drives me mad when it’s time to get you in
Your field Companion…is in
I need to wash your legs and clean your sheath and then pick out your feet
There’s always this mud between us…..or a million flies
Hello from the other side
of the field Ive called a thousand times
To bring you in out of…the pissing down rain
But each time I call you…you piss off again
Hello from the warm and dry
At least I can say that I’ve tried
with treats and carrots…time after time
Bit it don’t matter, even though the mud’s up to my thigh
To leave this stinking field and come inside and stop this foolish game
I hope…I can ride
Or at least go sideways down the road and then spin and gallop home
Its no secret…that you’re a git to ride
and you spook when nothing’s there
Now hello from the other side
Of the stable door your legs have dried
And I said I’m sorry…for spoiling your fun
but this sponge is for noses…and this one’s for your bum
Hello from the underside
I must have brushed 1000 times
I tell you, your tail…is just as bad as your mane
But it don’t matter, clearly…you’ll do it again…and again
Hello sand is in my eye
We tried to jump but then you shied
U look like you’re sorry…that I fell on my face
But that ain’t helping..no…I need a neck brace
Hello from the driver’s side
I’m off home now that I’ve hurt my pride
But there’s no lasting damage..so I’ll come back at 5
To repeat this madness…that makes me feel so alive
More about Kelly
My first question do are you a horse woman and a rider?
I am not 100% sure of the difference here 🙂 I currently train ex-racehorses from the ground and under saddle for their new roles in life
Is that your fabulous horse in the video? what is his name and is breed?
Both the horses in the video are in fact mine. The chestnut gelding is a 10yr old Thoroughbred ex-racehorse who we call Dave. The other is my home-bred warm-blood x Cleveland bay grey mare who was born with one eye and is called Special
What type of riding do you do?
Various – principally I retrain the thoroughbreds mostly on the flat and concentrate on building solid foundations so that their new owners have the ride-ability to specialize in pretty much what ever disciplines they chose. Personally I have competed in eventing, show jumping and dressage at an affiliated level and now enjoy utilizing classical principles in modern equitation
How did you come up with this idea to do an Adele Parody? and has Adele seen it or contacted you yet?
I came home from the yard on New Years Eve and my 9yr old step son was recording a parody he had written – I listened and had a light-bulb moment…the lyrics just came easily
Who helped you with the video and the choreography and the lyrics.
The lyrics were my own work, the audio recording was done by my very talented record producer fiance, Tony Hobden. We made a great team for the video…the choreography was all spontaneous – we just wanted to have fun with it
Are you a singer/musician?
I sing but I am not a singer ha ha! It is usually only reserved for the shower or in the car
What is your day job?
Currently I retrain racehorses at Racers to Riders, as mentioned I rehabilitate ex-racehorses and help them into new homes. I am about to launch a new business in medical and veterinary Thermography. I have a huge interest in injury prevention in sports horses and the camera I have just purchased from a company in Florida will allow me to image micro lesions/fractures caused by training and hopefully help trainers to adapt training schedules to prevent future breakdown. We can also identify neurological and lymphatic imbalances within the body, for example, the scope of this technology for the equine industry is huge as it is for we humans. The website, www.thermology.uk is currently being built and I fly to Florida at the end of my month to collect camera. We will be launching in February – It is a very exciting time
Are you surprised that the video went viral?
How many views have you had so far?
Why did you make the video?
We didn’t go out on New Years Eve so recorded a song and on New Years Day I thought it would be a cool idea to make a video to make friends and family smile
What are your friends and family saying?
I have had a massive amount of support by way of Facebook messages, texts, emails – the response has been nothing but positive
Is there an official Kelly Jewell fan page for us to book mark for future videos?
No I’m not wired that way – we will continue to upload videos onto my you-tube channel which will cover horse training, Thermography and the crazy stuff that we do
