Chickens

  • Trad

    We had some chickens, no eggs would they lay
    Had some chickens, no eggs would they lay
    My wife said, Honey, this sure ain't funny
    We're losing money, no eggs will they lay
    Then a rooster came into our yard
    Caught them chickens off their guard
    They're laying eggs now like they never used to
    Since the rooster came into our yard

    Had some milk cows, no milk would they give
    We had milk cows, no milk would they give
    My wife said, Honey, this sure ain't funny
    We're losing money, no milk will they give
    Then a rooster came into our yard
    Caught them milk cows off their guard
    They're giving egg-nog like they never used to
    Since the rooster came into our yard

    Had some elephants, no tusks would they grow
    We had elephants, no tusks would they grow
    My wife said, Honey, this sure ain't funny
    We're losing money, no tusks will they grow
    Then a rooster came into our yard (- with a ladder!)
    Caught those elephants off their guard
    They're laying eggs now of solid ivory
    Since the rooster came into our yard

    We had this rooster, he was so gay
    Had a rooster, awfully gay
    My wife said, Honey, this sure ain't funny
    We're losing money - terrible gay
    Then a chicken came into our yard
    Caught the rooster off his guard
    He's laying hens now like he never used to
    Since the chicken came into our yard

    As sung by Iain MacKintosh
