Speaking of Cows and Religion . . .

I don't recall where or how I first heard about this particular little gem but I was reminded of it recently and am compelled by something greater than myself to share it with you. This tune hails from Canada - from some folks who call themselves Arrogant Worm. The organ music and choral harmony in the latter part of the song make listening to this masterpiece a quasi-religious experience.

Isn't it great?! Humor me please and say, "Yes, you're right! This is the stuff of which greatness is made!!"

I want to sing this song in a choir. You know, after a couple of 'normal' songs. Just a little surprise for the audience. Go ahead and play it a couple times and feel free to sing along - I do.

I am cow, hear me moo, I weigh twice as much as you
and I look good on the barbecue
Yogurt, curd, cream cheese and butter's made from liquid from my udders.
I am cow, I am cow - hear me moo!

I am cow eating grass, methane gas comes out my ass
and out my muzzle when I belch.
Oh the ozone's getting thinner from the outcome of my dinner.
I am cow, I am cow - I've got gas!

I am cow, here I stand, far and wide upon this land
and I am living everywhere!
From B.C. to Newfoundland you can squeeze my teats by hand
I am cow, I am cow - I am cow! I am cow, I am cow - I am cow!

Your Welcome!

Lucy: Thanks for the mention! I'm glad you enjoyed this too! I sometimes wonder if I've gone off the deep end - if I have then at least I'm not alone.
