If you had none with your cereal
I don’t think that you would be pleased
Although you pour it from a bottle
From a cow’s udder it is squeezed

In a bottle I am stored
I’m something you can drink
On cereal I am poured

But it’s not oil or ink
It’s white and comes from a cow
And it’s something you can drink

And when churned, butter you can make

For a fight in summer
If this leaks inside your house
You might call a plumber

And sometimes it is still

You’ll see lots of this in motion
You also see it in a bath
In a glass and in the ocean
