To All the Cows I’ve Milked Before

By Mickey Rogers of This, That and the Other

The song, To All the Girls I've Loved Before, has little meaning to a shy farm boy. Therefore, I changed a few words in order to make it more relevant. I hope Julio Iglesias and Willie Nelson will not be offended.

To all the cows I've milked before
Who traveled in and out of my barn door
I'm glad they came along; I dedicate this barnyard song
To all the cows I've milked before.

To all the cows whose udders I've caressed
And may I say I've milked the very best
For giving us milk to grow, I owe a lot, I know
To all the cows I've milked before.

Their gas is ruining the ozone
Environmentalists say they shouldn't stay
But they’re so easy to take care of
Just fill them up with hay.

To all the cows that I would greet
Most have now been ground up into meat
I'm glad they came along; I dedicate this barnyard song
To all the cows I've milked before.

To all my cows - they were special girls
But now they're roasting on someone's grills
They still live within my heart, 'though they weren't so very smart
To all the cows I've milked before.

Their gas is ruining the ozone
Environmentalists say they shouldn't stay
But they’re so easy to take care of
Just fill them up with hay.

To all the cows I've milked before
Who traveled in and out of my barn door
I'm glad they came along; I dedicate this barnyard song
To all the cows I've milked before.

To all the cows I've milked before
Who traveled in and out of my barn door
I'm glad they came along; I dedicate this barnyard song
To all the cows I've milked before.
