Lyrics from The Lester S. Levy Collection of Sheet Music

The Virtual Gramophone has a 1915 recording by Henry Burr and the Peerless Quartet.

COWS MAY COME, AND COWS MAY GO, BUT THE BULL GOES ON FOREVER
(Words, Vincent Bryan. Music, Harry Von Tilzer. 1915.)

1. Seated in a country lane,
Joey and his sweetheart Jane.
He whispered fond words, as true lovers will,
Watching the cows coming over the hill.
He said, "Listen, Janie dear,"
As a cow and calf drew near.
"Just as those two love, I love you," said Joe.
Then Jane smiled as she whispered low:

CHORUS 1:
"Cows may come, cows may go,
But the bull will go on forever.
Down in Mexico, I know that you'll make a hit.
No one else can throw the bull like you, I'll admit.
I may be a little green, you see,
But you cannot fool me, no, never!
Modern love is just a bluff,
Nothing new but the same old stuff.
Cows may come, cows may go,
But the bull will go on forever.

2. "Listen, Janie dear," said Joe.
"You've got me all wrong, I know.
Come on and kiss me, and sometime next spring,
I'll get the license while you pick the ring."
"If you want a kiss," Jane cried,
"Tie that little bull outside.
You'll get a kiss upon our wedding day,
When you've sworn to love and obey.

CHORUS 2:
"Cows may come, cows may go,
But the bull will go on forever.
Maybe you imagine I've an ivory dome.
Ev'ry girl you meet, you think there's nobody home.
In the spring, you say you'll buy the ring,
But we won't kiss till then, no, never!
Other girls may get the laugh.
Throw the bull but spare my calf.
Cows may come, cows may go,
But the bull will go on forever."

Love the song!



Why did the calf walk around the cow?

To get to the udder side.

My great Uncle Frank and his cronies used to sit around and tell lies at the local fisherman's coop here in coastal Maine (circa early 1960's). I remember a sign on the wall that said "Cows may come and cow may go, but the bulkl in here goes on forever"
I was about five, and wondered about it. I found out later
Wrote a song subsequently, called "The Old Liars'

In Scotland the cows wait 'for heifer and heifer'.

Wow , thanks mike, for your kind words!
I have in fact become a member in the past , but somehow was lost in the system ... just haven't gotten a "round tuit" again as I have been busy touring and writing some new songs including a "mooving" tune about Tipsy Kye.
Hope to see you at a concert sometime soon!
PS Didn't someone write a song about interspecies dating between a moose and a cow?

How they got past the censors at that time goes absolutely beyond me. It is thick with inuendo.
