The Lyrics

I'm channeling the 80s this week, and I've created an unholy alliance between the Smiths and "Hey Diddle Diddle." There's a little stream of consciousness going on here, so you may want to try a few hallucinogens prior to reading.
I am the cow
I have brown hair
On a diet that is primarily bulgur
And a little hay
And munching perpendicular

I love the South
Except the clay
I graze upon things in my way
I am bovine and I need to chew cud
Just like every animal does

I am the spoon
I have no hair
You can choose me or your fingers for a holder
With a cheese soufflé
Or something less ventricular

Open your mouth
And then make way
I think we’re having soup and flambé
Or there’s Hunan’ and some spice that you know
Just know, there’s no gooey damp dough

I have to run
I’m dinner ware
I am china that is Royal Dalton stoner
I’m a saucer plate
For coffee, I’m vehicular

There is no doubt
A brief soiree
I’ll run off with the spoon on Monday
There’s a full moon, and it’s time to move on
To a place for summer fun sun

There’s a cat that we’d like to know.
Maybe a musician who likes to play tunes
Grab a bow, and fiddle on your own
A song well known
You’ll feel spry
Over fence you’ll fly

See the moon is gonna call the cow
Lit abstractly in its sheen
Hooves now readily leaving the ground
Hear a laughing dog sound.
No aminals were mispeled in the makking of this parodigm.

Moooooo-rvelous parody! Enjoyed it lots. I bet the brown cow is carrying chocolate milk, no? And loved the Mother Goose and French Cuisine motif in your song! Milking you 555 quarts of milk from that brown cow! Hope that they don't get abducted by aliens.
