Lyrics

Tell me milkcow, what on earth is wrong with you?
Oh, milkcow, what on earth is wrong with you?
Now you’ve left you a calf and your milk is turnin' blue
Lord, your calf is hungry and I believe he needs a suck
Lord, your calf is hungry, I believe he needs a suck
Well, your milk is turnin' blue, I believe he’s out of luck
Now, I feel like milkin' and my cow won’t come
I feel like churnin' and my milk won’t turn, I’m cryin' please
Please, don’t do me wrong
If you see my milkcow, baby now
Please drive her home
Lord, my milkcow been ramblin' for miles around
Lord, my milkcow been ramblin' for miles around
Well, how can you suck on some other man’s bullcow
In this strange man’s town?
