"The Cow's Wrong" as written by Richard Greentree, Robin Jones, John Maclean, Stephen Mason and Harry Nilsson....
I went down to the county drug store
I fought with the county law
I went out with my little boy
And I told him I can't see you no more

The cows in the field are silent
The sun lay an orange back
In blue rounded island
The people could never get back

My dog, my dog, my little black dog
He took a ride on the cuckoo train
He couldn't handle the pain
He took a ride on the cuckoo train

Went back to the shops yesterday
To look at the big blue eyes
She was passing me by, hmmmmmmm
She was passing me by, hmmmmmmm

She was passing by little me
She had love in her eyes I could see alright
Went to select the savers fruits
I had his eyes on the grapefruit tree

????? around and I sat on a stool
Somebody said to me
They said how-diddly-do to you little boy
Would you like ????? get you some ??????

???? a time you can come on home
???????????????????
Somebody hear to me in the holy light
????? by your eyes and get high on the wire
????? by your eyes and get high on the wire
????? by your eyes and get high on the wire
????? by your eyes and get high on the wire
????? by your eyes and get high on the wire
????? by your eyes and get high on the wire
????? by your eyes and get high on the wire

Sucked up my room that's in the ?????
Fucked up my life that's in the glue pot
And I ran down the road
Kicked my shoes in the air
And I
Tripped and fell in the dogshit

Sometimes (* 8)
[Next two lines are repeated and sung over the top of each other]
Put it all down
I fucked it up

    here, i think these are more accurate, but they can be just as wrong- i wish the band would let us know what the lyrics are- a lot of their songs are confusing... i just patched up the parts that seemed inaccurate.

    ...I went down to the county drug store
    and fought with the county law
    I went out with my little boy
    And I told him, 'Hon, I can't see you no more'

    Cows in a field of silence
    The sun lay an orange back
    The wind blew around an island
    The people could never get back...

    ...somebody's around as i sat on a stool
    somebody said to me
    they said how-diddly-do to you little boy
    would you like a carrot, can i get you some food?

    and with a little time you can come on home
    and i know that you rather would
    there's nobody here but me and the holy light
    nobody rise and gettin' high on the wire...

    sucked up my room that's in the blue hall...

    move it on down
    i fucked it up...

    there you go
