Point Reyes Seashore

Has Some Cows

 

INTRO

Point Reyes Seashore has some cows

5000 cows or so

Point Reyes Seashore has more cows

Than any park you know

With a moo-moo here, a moo-moo there

Here a moo, there a moo, everywhere a moo-moo

Point Reyes Seashore has more cows

Than any park you know

 

VERSE 1

And with these cows there comes cow poop

Ten million pounds or so

With a cow pie here

And a cow pie there

Here a pie, there a pie

Everywhere E-coli

Point Reyes Seashore’s yearly poop

Ten million pounds or so!

 

VERSE 2

And with cow poop comes poisoned streams

For steel-head and Co-Ho

With a sick fish here

And a sick fish there

Here a fish, there a fish

Everywhere a sick fish

Point Reyes cow poop poisons streams

To the ocean it all goes

 

VERSE 3

And at Point Reyes are Tule elk

No rarer elk you know

Just a few elk here

And a few elk there

Here an elk, but there no elk

Not everywhere are Tule elk

Point Reyes Seashore has some elk

Not everywhere you go

 

VERSE 4

And at Point Reyes cow ranchers say,

“Keep those Tule elk away!”

With an elk fence here

And a cow fence there

Here a fence, there a fence

Everywhere is more fence

Point Reyes ranchers want elk fenced

To keep elk numbers low

VERSE 5

And at Point Reyes the ranchers pay

“Politicians have a price,” they say

To huff and puff and clear the way

To mislead voters every day

To keep the ranching scam in play

Ee-i-ee-i-oh

 

VERSE 6

But it makes park soil dry and gray

Which keeps the wild life away

This is the sad state there today

But we know of a better way

To let elk out without delay

And moove poor cows out of the way

Reducing methane every day

So won’t you help and join the fray

To save the Earth in every way

Point Reyes cows must go

 

BRIDGE

And if you feel sorry for the ranchers

That’s really kind of you

But listen up to what went down

From another point of view

Oh they got millions years ago

The public paid them all that dough

And the ranchers just refused to go

And Big Ag lobby’s got their back

On public land the cows ransack

It’s time for cows to go

 

VERSE 7

Point Reyes Seashore’s lawyered up

They talk and talk all day

They talk to keep plain truths at bay

Long briefs hide common sense away

As elk keep dying they will say that

“Lots of death is nature’s way”

Ignoring fences in the way

From Pacific Ocean to the Bay

With some talk-talk here

And more talk-talk there

But we know of a better way

Let’s let elk out without delay

And moove poor cows out of the way

Reducing methane every day

So won’t you help and join the fray

To save the Earth in every way

Point Reyes cows must go
