The Cow

 

There Once was a Cow with a Double Udder.

When I think of it now, I just have to Shudder!

She was too much for One, you can bet your Life:

She had to be Milked by a Man and his Wife.

La vaca

 

Había una vez una vaca con una doble ubre.

Cuando pienso en ello ahora, siento un escalofrío!

Ella era demasiado para uno, puedes apostar tu vida:

Tenía que ser ordeñada por un hombre y su esposa.
