Programme 1: OW/OU
The Cow Song
Lyrics by Sarah A Miller
Music by Michael Henry

Big brown beautiful Jersey cows
Cows in a crowd, cows all around
Small brown baby cows, dribbling mouths,
Look at their eyes so nice and round.

Fluffy ducks' crowns bob up and down.
Count the ducks as they waddle around.
Brown hens make a clucking sound
Now they've laid their eggs right on the ground.

The milking pipes move up and down.
The milk spouts out and the pipe leads round.
To milk all cows takes two long hours.
The milk churns round and goes to town.

Big brown beautiful Jersey cow
In the olden days no machines like now
You crouch right down to milk a cow
Countess is the name of this friendly cow
Countess is the cow who shows me how!
