She Was Bitten On The Udder By An Adder

Album: Songs My Mother Never Sang (1961)


  • According to The Book Of Lists: The '90s Edition, which was published in 1994, "She Was Bitten On The Udder By An Adder" is number four of Dr. Demento's 11 Worst Song Titles Of All Time. Actually, the title belies some nifty fretwork, and the lyrics aren't that bad, especially when one considers that Homer & Jethro made a habit of this sort of thing. If the song does have any faults, it is that at one point the cow in question is alluded to as "him". Poetic licence of the most moo-ving kind? >>
