The Old Cow’s Tail Hangs Down Behind

Q: My wife and I saw you at the Home & Garden Show and loved the song you sang while waiting for the Noon start time. It concerned a cow. Please post the lyrics and associated melody on your website.

A: Ha!

I can’t find a source for this bit of doggerel but my mother often sang it to us when I was a kid:

Always remember and bear in mind
The old cow’s tail hang’s down behind
But although it’s ugly and full of cockleburrs
The old cow loves it because it’s hers!

I suppose the moral is to love what you have and don’t complain too much!
