Mad Cow Farm

In this terrifying tale, sweet, docile cows are transformed into murderous zombies. Brrrr! The only thing scarier than that is the USDA's inadequate testing for mad cow disease! Good thing this song is just a far-fetched fictional story. To take the chill off, we give you a cheerful calypso groove.

Old McDonald
Had a farm
He tried to keep it safe from harm
Five hundred cows
McDonald had
Then one by one they all went mad

With a mad cow here and a mad cow there
Here a cow, there a cow
Everywhere a mad cow

Old McDonald
Ran inside
He tried to find a place to hide
His zombie cows
Had gone insane
They'd all acquired a taste for brain

With a mad cow here and a mad cow there
Here a cow, there a cow
Everywhere a mad cow

We're not mad, we're not made
You're grievously moostaken
But try on this prion
It's exquisitely moosshapen

They cornered McDonald by the tractor
But one cow bumped the big machine behind her
It came to life and it attacked her
A brand new killer robot meat grinder (moo!)

And thus began
the cows' defeat
By the end of the day, they were all ground meat
Where are they now?
Well, they're around
In grocery stores in every town

With a mad cow here and a mad cow there
Here a cow, there a cow
Everywhere a mad cow
