Lyrics

Moo mooing quick step
See the cattle up from the countryside
See them hanging upside down
The beef is making it’s departure

Upon the slippery platform
Cattle throwing mud with their finger tips
When this parade is done
And feed the herd upon the pasture

Render into the rendering room
See them enter into the rendering room

Back in the stock yard
At work fertilising the clover
And they are dancing upside down
And the beef is making it’s departing

Upon the slippery platform
Cattle throwing mud with their finger tips
When this parade is done
They will feed the crowd upon the pasture

Render into the rendering room
See them enter into the rendering room

Now moving quickstep
Cattle planning it’s departure
See them dancing upside down
Meat market is making it’s departure

Upon the slippery platform
See them throwing red mud with their finger tips
When this parade is won
And feed the herd upon the pasture

Render into the rendering room
See them enter into the rendering room

Render into the rendering room
See them enter into the rendering room
