The Milking Song/Marguerite

(Kate Power & Steve Einhorn)
Music: Kate Power / Marguerite: Traditional
Give your milk, cow, give your milk
Whilst I sing my song to you
Let the milk churn fill and spill
With your milk, my dear old cow

Blessings of God I put upon you
Father, Son and Holy Ghost
And also Blessed Mary
Give more milk, my cow

Yours is good milk, fine and healthy
From the butter there will be cream
Do your best to give me plenty
And your barley share you'll gain

Blessings of God I put upon you
Father, Son and Holy Ghost
And also Blessed Mary
Give more milk, my cow

Round: Marguerite, come feed the black cow
All on a misty morning
Come for your dinner, cow
Come, come, come
Or else you will have nary a crumb
