So why don’t I
Just hang around
The cross, and see
Who comes?

I sit and sigh,
(‘twixt you and I)
And learn to
Twiddle thumbs.

Say aye and I,
And fill with cry,
And hem and haw
And hack!

But you and I,
My dear, the lie,
Must now to sit
And talk.

So why don’t you
Stand still and moo,
And moo and chew
Your cud?

I sit and sigh,
(‘twixt you and I)
And think, Dear God,
You smell!

I never thought
You did lie, lie,
My thoughts fall like
A feather.

You see, said I,
I will not lie,
But then, I won’t
Be true.

Blow in the wind,
Said I, said I,
But then, you would
Not be a

Why I, why I,
So who, so aye,
So who is this cow,
