The Rhode Island Red Rooster, Texas Two-Steppin', High-falootin' Chicken Song


Verse one:
Why did the rooster cross the road?
To get to the sunny side-
Just up the road.
It's just too bad that the rooster died
And ended up road-killed
Kentucky fried
Finger-lickin'
No longer cluckin'
Texas two-steppin'
High-falootin'...
Chicken.

Chorus:
The Rhode Island Red Rooster, Texas Two-Steppin', High-Falootin' Chicken Song
Just where did that unlucky rooster go so wrong?
He was just tryin' to get laid
By the chickens that get paid...
The Rhode Island Red Rooster, Texas Two-Steppin', High-Falootin' Chicken Song.


Verse two:
Why did the rooster cross the road?
To get to the chicken coop
The chicken ranch
Where the chickens aren't cheep
Where the chickens get laid on a regular basis
And even get paid.
As a matter of fact...
They're cheeper by the dozen.

Repeat chorus:

Verse three:
There goes that half-baked
Cock-a-doodle Dude
Struttin' his Foghorn Leghorn stuffin'.
Is Rhode Island Red a leg
Or a breast man,
A hot 'n spicy wing or a thigh man?
As long as they are
USDA-approved Grade A chickens
What the cluck? -
What does it matter, man?

Repeat chorus:


Verse four:
Why did the rooster cross the road?
To see a peep show
At the best little hen house in Texas.
The unlucky cluck forgot to duck.
Egg-foo-yung died way too young...
Tarred and feathered
At the bottom of the pecking order.
Now Rhode Island Red is road-kill dead...
The Rhode Island Red Rooster, Texas Two-Steppin', High-Falootin' Chicken Song.


Repeat Chorus: (finale)
