Music

G'day Folks.
This has absolutely nothing to do with computers. I hope I am not breaking any rules doing this.
But.
Once apon a time.... I heard a comedy song.

"How does a brown cow give white milk when it only eats green grass".

I am trying to get a copy to play for my grand-children.
Does any-body know who sang the song?

Yeah Yaytee.
That's all I can find now. I know I used to have the song in one of my folders. My son asked me to play it for my grandkids and I can't find it.
I am pretty sure that it orriginated a few years ago on a New Zealand quiz show and the boy who came up with the question beat the quiz show experts with it.
Then after that some-one came up with a song using that question as its base.

Wow!!! That is a long list.
The trouble is, I can't remember the name. It was not a show that I watched. It was a show that a Sydney news program picked up on and showed the part of the show where the younge boy asked the question.
Then I heard the song sung on a radio station, followed up from, and got the song.
It seem's as though I forgot to back it up and somewhere while cleaning, burning and re-installing over the years. I have lost it.
Unfortunately, searching for an old song seems to be harder than finding a new one.

It was recorded in New Zealand by Danny McGirr - it's called "the maori boys question" a comical song about a competition where school children were to try and outwit the panel of experts by stumping them with a question they could not answer.
chorus

why does a red cow give white milk when it's always eating green grass

why does a red cow give white milk when it's always eating green grass

thats the burning question -- the little maori boy did ask

why does a red cow give white milk when it's always eating green grass



well the teachers scratched their heads

they didn't know what to say

this was the hardest question

they'd had for many a day

but sitting among these fellows

was a world famous vet

they all turned to him to answer

the question you bet ----





chorus

why does a red cow give white milk when it's always eating green grass

why does a red cow give white milk when it's always eating green grass

thats the burning question -- the little maori boy did ask

why does a red cow give white milk when it's always eating green grass



well the vet he knew all about cows

he knew why they had horns

he could tell the sex of a calf

before it was born

he'd been to all the best schools

but OH for goodness sake

the question that the maori boy asked

it really took the cake



chorus

why does a red cow give white milk when it's always eating green grass

why does a red cow give white milk when it's always eating green grass

thats the burning question -- the little maori boy did ask

why does a red cow give white milk when it's always eating green grass
