The Lyrics

I love chicken
Well I, stepped in chicken poop today
I Said as far as I'm concerned
I wish these hens would go away
Then a chicken turned to tell me

That if they should ever go away
well just think of all the things
that you must do without today
and it might just make you say

[picture a chorus of chickens singing the chorus]

Keep laying keep playing
Knowing that your omlettes are secure, for sure,
That's what hens are for
For poached or for scrambled
I'll be laying eggs forever more
That's what hens are for

Well you love your chicken curry too
and so I must give my life
they only kill the kids and wife
So I think you should say 'thank you'

And when chicken salad is your taste
pulp my torso into paste
add onions, nuts and mayonnaise
I'm the best when you're on Atkins

Keep laying, keep playing
Knowing that your french toast is secure, for sure
That's what hens are for
For fried legs, for boiled eggs
Meal ideas come forever more
That's what hens are for
