Danish "modern folk rock" ballad - tried to translate it with content and rhymes intact to best of my ability......chorus was worst.....

The ballad of Rosa

Rosa came too late for her milking
now her udder is tight
now she's standing there moohing at the heavens
left behind and heavily mastite

when the others of her flock they went to gather
she saw them in line she felt fed up
how they were sucking up to the farmer
nah, she had another turf to grub

It hurts like hell having 4 teats
when the emptying routine is broken off
And had Rosa had the gifts to say pretty please
she'd given in without a cough

But her udder was growing like a burn boil
pain cut through Rosa like lightning strikes
and on the verge of madness and stampede
she started seeing the strangest of sights

(Chorus)
Forgotten riddles, different sides of beef, all the worlds fences broken through
On that monday, when the dairy cow called rosa, stood all alone and desolate

She saw thousands of women by the river
She saw egyptian grasshoppers in flight
She saw families of swelling fungus become alike
She saw every sound and every scent

She saw the yellow, the black and the strangers
get company car and dental file
and demanding like the rest of us
to have toiletpaper with style

She saw playing children run for cover
from Belfast to Georgetown's outskirts
The last thing she saw was a milky-white light
As her udder burst....

(Chorus)
Forgotten riddles, different sides of beef, all the worlds fences broken through
On that monday, when the dairy cow called rosa, stood all alone and desolate

Rosa came to late for her milking
'Couse she refused to get in line
now she's soaping up the well'offs
Cuz' nine out of ten uses it and....there always room for one more.........of rosa's kind.....


And the tune itself in original language.....
