The Old Cow Died

The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around
The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around

Did you give her hot water?
Yes ma'am
Did you give her any soda?
Yes ma'am

The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around
The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around

Did you send for the Doctor?
Yes ma'am
Then did the Doctor get here?
Yes ma'am

The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around
The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around

Did he tell you what ailed her?
Yes ma'am
Did she die of the cholera?
Yes ma'am

The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around
The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around

Did the buzzards fly over?
Yes ma'am
Did the buzzards try to eat her?
Yes ma'am

The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around
The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around

Did the buzzards sail up high?
Yes ma'am
Did the buzzards swoop down low?
Yes ma'am

The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around
The old cow died, sail around. The old cow died, sail around
