Complete song lyrics are as follows:

“Push the cow over the moon,

Who swept the tide out with a broom,

Send a letter of reply,

To the ocean’s tide,

But the tide did not return,

And the orchestra adjourned,

When the poets cancelled lunch,

Oh this caused much fuss.

 

“And while the priest was busy drinking diamond white,

Oh what we were searching for we couldn’t find,

Oh no, no, no, no.

 

“Push the cow over the moon,

Who swept the tide out with a broom,

Send a letter of reply,

To the ocean’s tide,

As the seagulls flocked,

To mock Elgar’s symphonies,

Well angel Gabriel,

Booked a flight to Tel Aviv.

 

“And still the priest continued drinking diamond white,

But what we were searching for we couldn’t find,

Oh no, no, no, no.

 

“So the bride and the groom,

Argued the off side rule,

As the majorettes,

Threw their batons too soon.

 

“Ah, ah-ha.

Ah, ah-ha.

 

“Push the cow over the moon,

Who swept the tide out with a broom,

Send a letter of reply,

To the ocean’s tide.”
