I Had a Silly Chicken

Lyrics

(Folk song)

1. Well, I had a silly chicken, and she wouldn’t lay an egg,
So I poured hot water up and down his leg.
And he giggled and he giggled and he giggled all the day
And the poor little chicken laid a hard boiled egg!

2. Well, I had a silly chicken, and she wouldn’t lay an egg,
So I rubbed hot chocolate up and down her leg.
And the little chicken hollered and the little chicken begged,
And the poor little chicken laid an Easter egg!

3. Well, I had a silly chicken, and she wouldn’t lay an egg,
So I rubbed some butter up and down her leg,
And the little chicken hollered and the little chicken begged,
And the poor little chicken laid a nice fried egg!

4. Well, I had a silly chicken, and she wouldn’t lay an egg,
So I rubbed some vinegar up and down her leg,
And the little chicken hollered and the little chicken begged,
And the poor little chicken laid a pickled egg!

5. Oh, I had a silly chicken, he went scratching in the dirt,
And he scratched so hard that his feet, they hurt.
So he bandaged them right up from the thighbone to his toe.
And you should have seen that chicken do a do-si-do!
