Betsy, the Heifer

Betsy the heifer
Queen of all the cows
She gives more milk
Than any law allows
Mornin' she gives pasteurized
Evnin' she gives homogenized
Betsy the heifer
Queen of all the cows.
Took her to the county fair
...tried to win a prize.
She knew what was goin' on
I could see it in her eyes.
She looked kinda nervous
She tried so hard to please
But when I tried to milk her
All I got was cottage cheese!
