Rooster, The


We had some hens, no eggs would they lay
We had some hens, no eggs would they lay
My spouse said, "Honey, this isn't funny
We're loosing money." No eggs would they lay
One day a rooster came into our yard
He caught those hens right off of their guard
They're laying eggs now, just like they used to
Ever since that rooster came into our yard
They're laying eggs now, just like they used to
Ever since that rooster came into our yard

We had a cow, no milk would she give
We had a cow, no milk would she give
My spouse said, "Honey, this isn't funny
We're loosing money." No milk would she give
When that rooster came into our yard
He caught the cow right off of her guard
She giving eggnog, that's more than she used to
Ever since that rooster came into our yard
She giving eggnog, that's more than she used to
Ever since that rooster came into our yard

We had a field, no crops would it grow . . . . We're raising eggplant . . .
We had a dog, no pups did she have . . . . She's delivering pooched eggs . . .
Me and my wife, no kids did we have . . . . We're raising egg heads . . .
We had a gum machine, no gum would it give . . . . We're getting chiclets . . .
We had a garden, no flowers would it grow . . . . We're growing chickweed . . .
We had some fish, but they wouldn't grow . . . . We're raising tuna, it's the chicken of the sea . . .
We had a car, but it wouldn't run . . . . We have a yolkswagen . . .
We had a comedian, no laughs could he get . . . . He's telling yokes now . . .
We had a army, no battles did we win . . . . We're getting shelled now . . .
We had a cannon, but it wouldn't fire . . . . We have no rooster . . .
