[ACT I ]
Move...
Move in closer...
Move in closer to the...
Move in closer to the middle of the frame 
[ACT II ]
It was a morning just like any other morning
...in the Sinai Desert
...1200 B.C.
It glistened, it glowed, it rose from the gold of the children of Israel
(and most of the adults) 
The Cash Cow 
The golden Cash Cow had a body like the great cows of ancient Egypt
And a face like the face of Robert Tilton (without the horns)
And through the centuries it has roamed the earth like a ravenous bovine seeking whom it may lick 
Cash Cow, Cash Cow 
From the Valley of the Shadow of the Outlet Mall
To the customized pet-wear boutique
From the trailer of the fry chef
To the palace of the sheik
The Cash Cow lurks
The Cash Cow lurks
The Cash Cow lurks 
Who loves you, baby?
Who'll give you good credit?
Who says you'll regret it?
Who loves you, baby?
Who'll give you good credit?
Who says you'll regret it? 
"I was young and I needed the money"
"I had money, and I needed more money"
"I was filthy rich--all I wanted was love. And a little more money..." 
Woe to you, proud mortal!
Secure in your modest digs
You think you're immune?
You, who couldn't finger said cow in a police line-up with the three little pigs? 
Cash Cow--Master of Disguises
Who's gonna change shape at will?
Who's the eye in the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill?
Who loves power lunching from Spago to the Sizzler?
Guess who's coming to dinner? 
Who loves you, baby?
Who'll give you good credit?
Who says you'll regret it?
One yank on that udder
Will land your butter
In a sling
First one's free
Cow junkies take heed 
Cash Cow, coming to getcha!
Why?
Because you think this is stupid, don't you?
The Cash Cow will not be mocked!
The Cash Cow's planning a coup!
The Cash Cow chews cud bigger than you! 
Woe, woe, woe to you who blow off this warning
Perhaps you've already been licked...
I, too, was hypnotized
By those big cow eyes
The last time I uttered
Those three little words
"I deserve better!" 
[INTERMISSION] 
[ACT III]
