The Lyrics

Through fields they trod
Low udders hanging under
Consider all
The sacrifices made
An Indian God,
We leave in rain and thunder
To us, enslaved
We buy and sell, and trade

We own their souls,
Un-a-ppre-cia-tive-ly
How great cows are!
How great cows are!
Their lives control,
While we roam far and free
How great cows are!
How great cows are!

Days in the sun,
Long nights of meadow grazing
Dissed by the birds
That walk upon their backs
Get no respect,
Yet, they are so amazing
Hard to believe,
They still seem so relaxed

We take their souls,
Un-a-ppre-cia-tive-ly
How great cows are!
How great cows are!
Their lives control,
While we roam far and free
How great cows are!
How great cows are!

Milk, butter, cheese,
Mild, sharp, and Mozzarella
Gold provolone,
Ice cream, spreads in a jar..
These dairies please
Each child, each girl, each fella
We should proclaim,
"My God, how great cows are!"

We steal their souls,
Un-a-ppre-cia-tive-ly
How great cows are!
How great cows are!
Freedoms control,
While we roam far and free
How great cows are!
How great cows are!

We give them grief,
All of their rights we plunder
Treat them unkind,
Much misaligned, the cow..
Slay them for beef,
What an inhuman blunder
A union need,
For Jimmy Hoffa, now

We steal their souls,
Un-a-ppre-cia-tive-ly
How great cows are!
How great cows are!
Their lives control,
While we roam far and free
How great cows are!
How..great..cows..are!

Nice one, very mooooooving-555! Hey AFW, you ever see a cow with trapped gas in one of its stomachs? The farmer has to take a screwdriver or awl and puncture its side or else the cow can explode (or so I was told as a kid)!!!

You nailed this one. I can almost hear George Beverly Shea singing this.

So moooooooooo-ved by this satire. I'm impressed with your moooooor-velous parody! Oh how I pity the poor cows sometimes, even though I have a craving for dairy! Milking you 3 sets of 5's with this one!

No horniness nor cheesiness on this parody, but it is just the milk and butter we need. I'm mooooooooooved - 555.

How juicy and beefy this parody is! Yet very lean and well-grounded.

Your "amazing" rhyming fidelity to TOS is not "under"-appreciated by me.
