Bud Savoie Lyr Add: The Brown-Skin Cow (peachpit/applecore) (29) ADD: The Brown-Skin Cow 26 Dec 00

Thought I was the only person in the world who remembered those.

The name of the song in question is

The Brown-skin Cow

You can get good milk from a brown-skin cow;
The color of the skin doesn't matter anyhow.
Oh, ho, ho, Haw, Haw, Haw,
You can learn common sense from a grocery store.

Heard the peach pit say to the applecore,
The color of our skin doesn't matter anymore.
Oh,ho, ho, can't you see,
The color of your skin doesn't matter to me.

Heard a choo-choo train say to its track,
"Don't care if my passengers are white or black,"
Oh, ho, ho, use your brain,
You can learn common sense from a railroad train.

Then there was "Commodore Gray had a cat and a dog, with a big bowwow and a little meow." The commodore told his men that if his cat and dog could get along, so could they.

And "What Makes a Good American." The principles were "I don't care where you're from; I go by what you are; I stand up for my rights; but do I stand up for yours?" (I know; it doesn't rhyme). What makes a good American? What do you have to do? Am I a good American? and by the way, are you?

Then they had cartoons of a great jazz band: Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, Lionel Hampton. A real mixed bag, but together they make great music.

What am I forgetting?

Well, Bud, did you forget Line Breaks <br>? (grin)
