The Lyrics

As I work so long on the farm, I sing a song
In the mud, amid odors so strong.
And as I still work on, I step on some bovine crud
That once had the form of a cow cud.

I'm a-forkin' 'em the hay;
Fallin' in the trough, it's put away.
Promptin' in me a query
About the mystery
Of their stomachs,
Their stom-om-om-om-omachs.
They twelve time ate.
It's no wonder, they salivate
Because they ruminate,
Rum-rum-rum-rum ruminate,
Rum-rum-rum-rum ruminate.

[Repeat the second verse several times until you digest it]

Great job JB, 5's.

Cows spit it up and chew again
Hay chewed
Tastes like a grassball
That's a bit older

And cows all know if it's not chewed
Then it's
Not food
Beauty's in the eyes
Of the cud-holder

As a former (thank God for that) farm boy, myself, this rings very true to me. Great parody. All 5's.
