The Lyrics

Sometimes it takes becoming a chicken, to become a man.

Verse 1: I strut the yard like a rooster in the morning
Don’t need a keeper now to tell the time
I have been changed, making poor old me suffer with feathers
Egg-laying nethers, and tasty thighs
I did wrong by an insane necromance
Leaving me trapped in a bird that can’t fly
I’m dropping eggs like an egg-spoon race reaching its climax
Forgive me my syntax, the reason I…

Chorus: Know!
Why I’m a chicken is simple to show
When the fight got bold, I heel-toed, and I choked!
I get goose pimples by even a scowl
And now my mood is always fowl…


Verse 2: You don’t know what his powers have done to me
He has my soul cooped up in a pen
And what’s more wrong is the sinister switching of giblets
I mean my “tid-bits,” I’m not a hen!
I count the crows ‘til the fate that shadows me
My eggs have holes, so I am useless
There is no hope, hear the call of a machine that minces
Leaving me breastless, Kentucky fried!

Chorus: Cluck!
Now I’m a chicken who’s run out of luck!
When the farmer’s struck, I’ll be plucked, and that sucks!
I am a whimp, I wish I were a duck
But soon nuggets, I will become
Real soon nuggets, I will become!

​​[Instrumental Break]

Verse 3: I live on as an avian internee
Won’t ever get to re-transmogrify
You sit judging now, thinking country life sounds really sultry
Not when your poultry, I’m terrified
I strut on like a well-trained cockerel
I will protect my hens to ratify
Don’t come at me like a discount, knock-off Colonel Sanders
Cuz that’s not good manners, lick those fingers right…

Chorus: Off!
Cuz I’m a chicken protecting my flock!
I’m a fighting cock, I won’t balk, I will not!
I’ll prove my mettle with feathers and bawks
And who needs a thumb? Give no clucks

So, why be a man? You can cluck
Not rooster or crow!
Yes, I’m a chicken, you should watch your toes…
Don't bawk at this. If you enjoyed it, follow me Blaydeman in Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, and SoundClick.

One of Disturbed's songs that I've actually started sketching too once, but gave up on because of pacing issues. I think you nailed it as well's possible here. Pretty funny too.

This one was really funny! I did a song about becoming a dog and marrying a chicken but never becoming a chicken so this was a blast. I liked the inclusion of a backstory in this one was well as the inclusion of the two meanings of chicken lol

(Artistry) A few pacing issues here and there, but I can forgive those because a) this is Disturbed, they're a bit tricky in that area and b) this was fantastically written. I'm a huge fan of transformation stories, so this was right up my alley. The backstory, the acknowledgement of the gender-switch, the puns, this was top-notch. 555 eggs!

There's the red jungle fowl, they're pretty vicious.
