Lyrics
The Cow Song ©1999 by Joe Kretschmer

Standin' in the pasture, eatin' grass and hay.
You know that's pretty much my day,
'Cause I'm a cow. Moo, moo, moo.

Don't mind the rain, don't care about the mud.
Stand in the grass and chew my cud.
'Cause I'm a cow. Moo, moo, moo.

[bridge 1]
Now, if you like ice cream, yogurt or butter,
Then you gotta get down there and pull on my udder.
I gotta admit it's not much fun,
But it beats gettin' put on a hamburger bun!

Live on the farm, don't go very far.
You can see me when you drive by in your car.
'Cause I'm a cow. Moo, moo, moo.

Come in brown and black and white,
Make a lot of noise but I sure don't bite.
'Cause I'm a cow. Moo, moo, moo.

[bridge 2]
Make my way to the barn when the evenin' comes.
I kinda like the song the farmer hums, while he's pitchin' hay
Sure hope he's pitchin' some my way.

Got real short hair as smooth as silk.
Whole lotta people like to drink my milk.
'Cause I'm a cow. Moo, moo, moo.

Now being a cow ain't all that grand
But ya gotta admit it keeps ya close to the land.
'Cause I'm a cow?was back then and I still am now.
'Cause I'm a cow. Moo, moo, moo.

Description
Short Song Description:
It's a song about being a cow.
Long Song Description:
The song describes a cow's existence from the cow's point of view, or at least what I perceive is the cow's point of view. It doesn't say anything deep or profound, just in a matter-of-fact manner that is rather light-hearted.
Story Behind the Song:
My nephew, who was 10 years old at the time, aske me to write him a song about a cow. So I did.
