The Lyrics

OS is off the wonderful "Workingman's Dead" album from 1970. Lyrics in {brackets} sung during instrumental parts.
[eating sounds and brief instrumental]

Know this sounds strange
I like cow's brain
Like it's gushy texture
when I eat
Straight from it's head
piece of it's mind
Tasty and no bones there
like it just fine

[brief instrumental]

{Cow's brain; great}
{can serve it with rice}

From that cow's head
a piece of it's mind
No grease; it's tasty
man, it sure tastes sublime
It's cerebellum is
tender to chew
and that cortex keeps sendin'
my taste buds to heaven

Eatin' membrane
spicy or plain
Got no bones in head there
fun to eat
Inside of head
is well-designed
Ain't no gross intestines
not cow's behind

{Uh-uh, brains not in cow's behind}

Once you are fed
the brains from cow's head
sure you will like it
goes good with dark bread
As you're eating
you might just think "moo"
don't let it distract
just keep eating till through

Think I'm insane?
Here's what I say
Make no bones about it
brains I eat
Brains from cow's head
do taste sublime
You might think it's gross that
I "nosh" on it's mind

[instrumental break]

Like cow's brain!

Love it, I do
it's a wonderful treat
It goes good with "eyes"
but don't serve with "feet"
Don't frown, my friend
and judgment; suspend
Just try it, you'll see
why it appeals to me

Frying cow's brain?
Don't use high flame
keep it low; it's better
you will see
Best when it's fresh
always divine
wonderful aroma
serve with white wine

Don't have no veins
fat or remains
no bowels or intestines
just pure meat
Once cow is dead
she will not mind
Once you grasp that notion
it won't seem unkind

Dining on brains
is really OK
You will not regret it
no, indeed
In a cow's head
brains that you'll find
only slightly used them
once in a while

Try some today
side course or main
Won't get indigestion
you'll be pleased
You'll feel well fed
when you have dined
on the tasty brains of
some deceased bovine...

try it with side order
of bulldog's spine...
