The Lyrics

Cow song…my fence they’re stompin’ on
Cow song…my daffs they’re chompin’ on

How they fart with their fancy digestion…many guts do the work as a team
They have feed for some extra nutrition…makes ‘em fat an’ their milk full of cream
And they’re bred so on me they’re dependin’…they need a good milkin’ each day
With a great many udders expandin’…they could pop an’ their knees could give way

Cow song…my lawn they’re feedin’ on
Cow song…my dog they’re standin’ on

Well, they’re fraught with the fear of predation…If they split when it’s cold they will steam
If you’re caught out an’ have no provisions…climb on in if the cold is extreme
They’re no good when it comes to defendin’…when the wolves are out huntin’ their prey
They can sense when their death is impendin’…when they’re fenced in they can’t run away

A cow song…my hedge they’re munchin’ on
Cow song…my nerves they’re gettin’ on
Cow song
Cow song…my fish they’re steppin’ on
Cow song, yeah
Cow song… my wife is carpin’ on
Cow song
Cow song…my car they’re peein’ on
Cow Song…my kids they’re crappin’ on
This is the first parody on this site of a song by this band. Were they unknown in the US?
If you’ve never heard them & you’re a fan of Steely Dan type 70’s rock, check it out on Youtube.
The singer was Paul Carrack who later replaced Jools Holland in Squeeze and was the main singer on Tempted

Thanks John, Mark, AFW & TJC.
Thanks TT - I can't believe you've never heard of Squeeze (Cool For Cats, Up The Junction). Anyone would think you've spent your life in isolation. Somewhere like the middle of the ocean.

D'oh, I'm a Turtle!
To be more precise: not the middle of the ocean, usually near land and/or reefs, to scrape algae for food, or in the Sargasso Sea (sargassum = seaweed), and usually *under* water, to avoid the raucous clamor that passes for "music" these days. So I DKTOS on much of the modern stuff, unfortunately. Sorry -- still like your songs, this one included.

Loved it. I think this song should be parodied some more. This one gets a perfect 5 in each category.
