Subject: I wanna whip your cow
From: GUEST,bellamy
Date: 27 Jun 00 - 01:04 AM

I was hunting through one of those "bad country and western song titles" lists on the web and came across this (purported) title: "I wanna whip your cow".

Has anyone heard the song, or can they point me in the direction of the lyrics. For the purposes of this question, I am assuming it's a real song.

Any help would be appreciated.

bellamy.

There was a C&W song recorded by a local singer a few years ago called "Whip me, beat me, make me write bad checks" so I can imagine there's one by that title.

I heard the song on a radio station demo tape 20+ years ago. It was in a gag about punk country, a genre of C-F-G songs about abuse of farm animals. I still occasionally sing it.

"I wanna whip your cow.
I wanna whip your cow... show me how, show me how.
I want to hear her moo
So do you.
I wanna whip your cow
Show me how, show me how."

not quite what you're looking for - in fact, it surely must be better!

BS - Worse Country Western Title Feb 2003

I have a list somewhere giving more titles - when I find it, I'll post it, but in the meantime enjoy this effort by 2 of Australia's funniest songwriters who have used titles of country songs to create a whole new song!

They are both excellent singers, & their act is a treat - silly stuff that gets me laughing till I cry, silly songs, mostly similarly titled: The (something) Song & serious songs too. Martin also works as a comedian & could get laughs from a recital of entries in the phone book. Last year Hrothgar put on a workshop of Stan Rogers songs at the National Folk festival in Canberra & John & Martin were part of the lineup.

THE COUNTRY SONG
c. Martin Pearson & John Thompson

Mama, get the hammer, there's a fly on Papa's head.
I've been roped and thrown by Jesus in the Holy Ghost corral.
I fell in a pile of you and got love all over me,
But who bit the wart off Grandma's nose?

Chorus: I wanna whip your cow; I wanna whip your cow,
'Cause you just can't play a sad song on a banjo, anyhow.
You done tore out my heart and you stomped that sucker flat.
You made toothpicks from the timbers of my heart.

If the jukebox took teardrops, I'd cry all night long.
You stuck my heart in an old tin can and shot it off a log.
Well, I guess if you can't feel it, then it ain't really there,
And the last word in lonesome is "me."

Repeat chorus

If I can't be number one in your life, number two on you.
I can't get over you, 'til you get out from under him.
I'm so miserable without you, it's almost like you're here,
So I flushed you down the toilet of my heart.

Repeat chorus until tired, light blue touch paper and retire

    Ah..Punk Country. I remember the single from the Stevens & Grdnic album, it was called "I Want To Whip Your Cow". I think that was around 79 or 80.
And another:
    Hey Dubba Don, I remember that Tams fake Promo stuff. It was Punk Country: "I want to whip your cow, I want to show you how". They had a bit about a balding Elton John with another comeback attempt. It was way ahead of its time. I wish I could get a copy of that. It was priceless.
There is some information out there about Stevens & Grdnic, but I haven't located the song.

Further to Sandra's post - Martin and John have the tracks from their three CDs available as free MP3s. I thought the country song was among them, but it doesn't seem to be.

Tangledwood, as far as I know they haven't recorded the Cow song, it's not on any of their albums, or on Martin's solo albums (nor is it on any Cloudstreet albums!)

That was about to become a mystery as I have an MP3 of it. However mystery solved. Thank you for making a proper clicky of my link. But if you go to their home page instead of the music page that I linked, right click on their cartoon picture and "save target as", the song will download. It doesn't seem to want to play just by clicking on the picture.

From another forum at http://www.bautforum.com/archive/index.php/t-19838.html:
    "I Wanna Whip Your Cow" was not a real song. It was created by TM Century, a BIG jingle company in Dallas. It was part of a promotional piece that pondered aloud about the future of radio. One of the possible new formats in this fantasy piece was called "Punk Country" and featured the short song. (Lyrics went "I wanna whip your cow, show me how, show me how, I wanna hear her moo, so do you....")

    The promotional samples were sent out to radio stations around the country in the late 70s/early 80s and it was certainly grabbed my attention. In the 25 years since that was released, I've purchased several jingle packages from TM for stations I've programmed.

The song is not real. It was part of a radio promotional package called Punk Country from TM Productions. I believe it was released back in 1980 or 1981. In the package the announcer lntorduces "I wanna whip you cow by the Stiffs"

Hope it helps

I still have a copy of the TM Productions (Dallas ?) record somewhere. Now I will have to find it and copy to digital.
When I get a chance.

YouTube Video (click)....or perhaps you could learn how to use a search engine yourself.

Something makes me think that many of these MP3 requests are just Spam, because the requesters never come back to acknowledge the information provided.

But hey, it's a great song....
