“Chickens and Cows” by Jaymie Gerard
Why’s a chicken called a chicken
And a cow known as a cow?
I think I’d like to switch the two
Oh yes, and this is how –
From this day forth it’s going to be a chicken’s job to moo
She’ll mosey to the parlor and give us chicken milk each morn’
And she’ll be grazing on the pasture from the day that chick is born
Now cows, of course, will be busy laying eggs for us to eat
They’ll cluck their days away and scratch the ground with their cow feet
They will live out in the cow coop, safe from foxes through the night
And the strongest males will say bull-a-doodle-doo before they fight
So what’s the difference, you may ask,
If the names are switched or not?
I guess there really isn’t one
But it was worth the thought!
