"Co-Coward" as written by and Caroline/bunskoeke Van Dijk....
Tell me 'bout your youth.
Ah, just tell the truth.
Was it nice and smooth
Or was it a lie?

And when you
Were a child,
Were you young and wild
Or just undefined,
Ready to cry?

It should have been me,
You should've believed in me.
It's all in the way you say
This doesn't happen every day.
It doesn't happen every day.

Living in denial.
Have you lost your smile?
Well, it takes a while
Before you'll forgive.

And what's that on your sleeve?
Won't you tell me, please.
We can make believe
Just for a while.

It should have been me,
You should've believed in me.
It's all in the way you say
This doesn't happen every day.
It doesn't happen every day.

Cow-cow-cow- coward incurable.

Cow-cow-cow-coward incurable.

Cow-cow-cow-coward incurable.

It should've been me.
You should've believed in me.
It's all in the way you say
This doesn't happen every day.
It doesn't happen every day.

Cow-cow-coward.
Cow-cow-coward.
Cow-cow-coward.

    Song MeaningThis is one of my favorite Bettie songs. There is something exotic and haunting and beautiful about Carol van Dijk's voice in general, but in this song she gets under my skin. Perhaps many of us have felt the coward about something in our past, something that we should have gotten fully behind. Cow-cow-cowward incurable...what an indictment! The grudge, the regret, the guilt, the beauty of not letting go of rejection. Who could jilt such a one? That voice certainly doesn't happen every day!
