We Come Not To Praise The Cowbell But To Mourn The Cow - Single

by Heirs to the McQueen Fortune

supported by


A song auctioned for charity, won by Lent (the great journalist), and written with her love of cowbells in mind. Yeah, this was during the heyday of Ferrell & Co. and it's cliched now, and it was pretty much cliched then, but Lent loves that cowbell, used to carry it around, clonk it at company meetings.

About how the cowbell rush of the 70s left all the cows without their bells and when the UFOs came to dissect the cattle, we didn't hear a thing.
