LyricsEdit

Bang, pow! Look at me now
Don't let the cows stray off too far
Come down, take a good look around
See how the cows start to shine like light bulbs

I love the cows
I love the cows 
I love the cows, yeah
I love the cows

Rain comes, strikes you dumb
Re-seed the meadow so the cows don't starve
Mud puddle's a fine place to cuddle
You're a mosquito or a mosquito's baby

I love the cows
I love the cows
I love the cows
I love the cows

They're smiling in your face
All the time they wanna take your place
Yeah you know who I mean
Talkin' about those cow-machines 

I love the cows
I love the cows
I love the cows
I love the cows
