the cows are all mad at me



well the cows are all mad at me. yeah the cows are all mad at me. well my big heart is broken now that my doctor has spoken and ive got mad cow disease.

1. well the lamb put his foot in his mouth. so i tried to head way down south. but there was dust on the trail and i stepped on a nail and now i say real stupid things too.
2. well my foot bled all the way to mcdonalds. i ordered a mcburger with cheese. then i peed in a cup and the cows drank it up and now theyre real angry with me.

chorus: well the cows are all mad at me. yeah the cows are all mad at me. well im sick and im broke and im yellow as yolk and ive got mad cow disease

3. well i tried to pull the hoof out of the mouth of the lamb whilst i was eating a big piece of ham. well i cut my big finger and the disease did linger, and now im gettindumber by the minute. i went a steakhouse in blighty, and i prayed to the good lord almighty. i said this'll be my last steak with a big chocolate shake if you stop all these cows from chasin me.

chorus: well the cows are all mad at me. yeah the cows are all mad at me. im tired and lazy and my heads goin crazy cause ive got mad cow disease

5. well i headed out yonder to newcastle and thats when my life became a big hastle(hoff) well i got a hunch its cause i eat cows for lunch that they wanna kick my ass real bad. i came across a gang of mad bovines who had an alliance with lambs of all kinds. they hunted me down and they stomped on my crown and i think theyre still chasing me

chorus: well the cows are all mad at me yeah the cows are all mad at me. im skinny and broke like a bycycle spoke and ive got mad cow disease

7. maybe im just freaked out and paranoid. but my life seems to have a big void. i peek out my curtains and im just about certain that the cows are all waiting for me
8. well its been several months since i answered the door. im scared to even walk down the street to the store. they say the postman rings twice, this time it was a cow in disguise ans he barbecued my ass for lunch

chorus: well the cows are all mad at me yeah the cows are all mad at me
my skin is all charred and now im just lard cause ive got mad cow disease

I remember it too! which is an accomplishment in it's own right.

Great Find!

I'll go listen now.

That was awesome!!!

... and I just want to apologize for saying "great find" up there. Antiquers say that, and I hate it. But it slipped out, and I couldn't stop it.

carence!!!! I can't believe you're antiquist. after all they've been through. just 'cause you were born with new furniture in your mouth doesn't mean that they're not people too. I'm half-antiquist on my mother's side, you know. yes, I know it doesn't show, but that doesn't mean I'm not proud of my heritage. I think you really need to go to your room and think about what you said. and no dessert.

Sean, Sean, Sean...

I mean no disrespect to the antiquers of the world, I've been known to go "antiquing" from time to time and some of my best friends are antiquers... But, I just don't like secret cult and language. Like saying "great find", I find it to be a bit annoying... you know what I'm saying?
Please forgive me, and apologize to your mother for me.

re: " i came across a gang of mad bovines who had an alliance with lambs of all kinds"

we dedicated this week's CityBeat to the Bovine Anger Management Society (BAMS) and your good friend and mine, Edwin Decker, wrote a column about Saddam the Spider Boy, so, um, yeah, funny, huh?...

your pot-concealing journalist devotee,

I apologized to my mother for you and she said, "who's carrie?" seems there's a gap in the rainbow and no pot of gold. but I did threaten a leprachaun with a shovel, so I have that going for me. which is nice.

I am very into the whole "antiquing" thing, though I am more interested in making my own rather than buying someone else's.
