The Good Moolly Cow by Eliza Lee Follen

Come! supper is ready;
Come! boys and girls, now,
For here is fresh milk
From the good moolly cow.

Have done with your fife,
And your row de dow dow,
And taste this sweet milk
From the good moolly cow.

Whoever is fretting
Must clear up his brow,
Or he’ll have no milk
From the good moolly cow.

And here is Miss Pussy;
She means by mee-ow,
Give me too some milk
From the good moolly cow.

When children are hungry,
O, who can tell how
They love the fresh milk
From the good moolly cow!

So, when you meet moolly,
Just say, with a bow,
“Thank you for your milk,
Mrs. Good Moolly Cow.”
