Comment: We had some chickens

(See in situ)


We had some chickens

(No, we didn't really have chickens. It's just a funny little song I know. But as they say, Many a true word is said in jest! Actually, it's called The Rooster Song.)

We had some chickens
No eggs would they lay
We had some chickens
No eggs would they lay

My wife said, "Honey,
We're losing money
This isn't funny
Why won't they lay?"

One day a rooster
Came into our yard
He caught those chickens
Right off their guard

(Refrain)
They're laying eggs, now
Just like they used ta
Ever since that rooster
Came into our yard
They're laying eggs, now
Just like they used ta
Ever since that rooster
Came into our yard

My wife said, "Honey,
We're making money
It's really funny
How those chickens lay."

Poor rooster's dead now
They've laid him away
But his sons are making
Those pullets lay

(Refrain)
They're laying eggs, now
Just like they used ta
Ever since that rooster
Came into our yard
They're laying eggs, now
Just like they used ta
Ever since that rooster
Came into our yard

(Found this on youtube. I now see that there are different variations of the song - both lyrics and tune. This is the tune I know. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVFCTPovY78 I hope you didn't find the song offensive. If so, all I can say is I'm sorry, and I wouldn't advise checking out those other variations.)

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
