The Lyrics

You know I love to hear these words
I’d hate to see their use expire
“POULTRY NETTING’S” hardly heard
Now, I have to vent my ire

DON’T YOU CALL IT CHICKEN WIRE!
DON’T YOU CALL IT CHICKEN WIRE!
WHY NOT CALL IT TURKEY – WIRE?

The time for POULTRYGEIST is HERE!
The turkey farmers have conspired
Try and not give in to fear
Before those turkeys light a protest fire

DON’T YOU CALL IT CHICKEN WIRE!
DON’T YOU CALL IT CHICKEN WIRE!
WHY NOT CALL IT TURKEY – WIRE?

{ORGAN INSTRUMENTAL}

The push for POULTRY NETTING’s huge
In time for Christmas dinner buyers
That’s them in their turkey suits
Chanting with POULTRY CORRECT desire

DON’T YOU CALL IT CHICKEN WIRE!
DON’T YOU CALL IT CHICKEN WIRE!
WHY NOT CALL IT TURKEY – WIRE?

Even if it was up to me
And everyone addressed me sire
Would they honor my decree
Would they do what I required?

DON’T YOU CALL IT CHICKEN WIRE!
DON’T YOU CALL IT CHICKEN WIRE!
WHY NOT CALL IT TURKEY – WIRE?
WHY NOT CALL IT PIGEON – WIRE?
WHY NOT CALL IT OSTRICH – WIRE?
WHY NOT CALL IT DUCKY – WIRE?

So, it's really called "poultry netting"? Learn something new every day. Funny rant here with good poultry puns. .

Wire you writing about chicken netting?

Q. Why did the chicken cross the wire?
A. "Cause they can't change lightbulbs and you can't use that joke on them.

Q. How many chickens does it take to change a wire?
A. Just one if they're not too busy laying eggs or scratching in the dirt.

Q. Why did the chicken cross the wire?
A. She thought her egg was a lightbulb and she tried to get it to work, since the one in the hen house was burned out and as we already know, chickens cannot change lightbulbs.

Clever parody, Lionel. POULTRYGEIST is the best line, but it's all good.
