Poor Cow

Album: Ancient Heart (1988)
  • Today is my birthday
    I stay outside the hall
    Inside sit the butterflies
    For the butterfly ball

    All the boys are graded now
    They come in their white socks, flat tops
    And somehow they find a placr
    All the boys are winning now
    They play all the tricks with smiles
    And a sorry past
    For poor caw

    Their own room
    And winter tales
    Never touched these girls before
    They hear the car stereo
    And know what life is for

    All the boys are weary now
    listening to the family sing song
    Family say so

    Must carve, must carve poor cow
    Slice her, slice her up, poor cow
    Slice her, slice her up, poor cow
    Slice her, slice her up, poor cow

    Today is my birthday
    I stay outside the hall
    Inside sit the butterflies
    For the butterfly ball Writer/s: TANITA TIKARAM
