Song Notes

How to keep your chickens laying.

LYRIC

Chickens

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 don’t they lay”
One day a rooster came into our yard
He caught those chickens right off their guard

They’re layin’ eggs now, just like they used t’
Ever since that rooster came into our yard
They’re layin’ eggs now, just like they used t’
Ever since that rooster came into our yard

Our chickens lay now a dozen a day
Yes every darn chicken lays a dozen a day
My wife said, “Honey, we’re makin’ money
It’s really funny how those chickens lay”
Poor roosters dead now, we’ve laid him away
But his son is makin’ those pullets lay

They’re layin’ eggs now, just like they used t’
Ever since that rooster came into our yard
They’re layin’ eggs now, just like they used t’
Ever since that rooster came into our yard

Something about the song.

Chickens

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 don’t they lay”
One day a rooster came into our yard
He caught those chickens right off their guard

They’re layin’ eggs now, just like they used t’
Ever since that rooster came into our yard
They’re layin’ eggs now, just like they used t’
Ever since that rooster came into our yard

Our chickens lay now a dozen a day
Yes every darn chicken lays a dozen a day
My wife said, “Honey, we’re makin’ money
It’s really funny how those chickens lay”
Poor roosters dead now, we’ve laid him away
But his son is makin’ those pullets lay

They’re layin’ eggs now, just like they used t’
Ever since that rooster came into our yard
They’re layin’ eggs now, just like they used t’
Ever since that rooster came into our yard
