Song Of The Week 3



The Cow Song

They grow corn in Wisconsin,
and they grow cattle too.
They feed the corn to the cows
then they feed the cows to you.

Oh, they chop ’em and they grind ’em
till you would not recognize ’em
then they put ’em in a bun
and they call it lots of fun! Hey!

On a road trip to Wisconsin with the lovely Kris Cahill, back in 1993 or 1994, I made up this song as we were driving along. It would have been forgotten if Kris hadn’t made me write it down. Thanks, Kris!
