Cowtown

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the album Lincoln (1988) and on the compilation album Then: The Earlier Years (1997).

I'm going down to Cowtown, the cow's a friend to me
Lives beneath the ocean and that's where I will be
Beneath the waves, the waves, and that's where I will be
I'm gonna see the cow beneath the sea

The yellow Roosevelt Avenue leaf overturned
The ardor of arborreality is an adventure we have spurned
We've spurned a new leaf overturned
It's a new leaf overturned

And so I'm going down to Cowtown, the cow's a friend to me
Lives beneath the ocean and that's where I will be
Beneath the waves, the waves, and that's where I will be
I'm gonna see the cow beneath the sea

We yearn to swim for home but our only home is bone
How sleepless is the egg knowing that which throws the stone
Foresees the bone, the bone, our only home is bone
Our only home is bone

And so I'm going down to Cowtown, the cow's a friend to me
Lives beneath the ocean and that's where I will be
Beneath the waves, the waves, and that's where I will be
I'm gonna see the cow beneath the sea

Yes, I'm going down to Cowtown, the cow's a friend to me
Lives beneath the ocean and that's where I will be
Beneath the waves, the waves, and that's where I will be
I'm gonna see the cow beneath the sea

Yes, I'm gonna see the cow beneath the sea
