Shanghai Chicken


(American folk song)

1. Shanghai chicken grows so tall;
Few days, few days,
Almost reach the top of the wall,
And I’m goin’ home.

I have a home over yonder;
Few days, few days,
I have a home over yonder,
and I’m goin’ home.

2. Great big fish they call a whale;
Few days, few days,
Swallowed Jonah head and tail
and I’m goin’ home. Refrain

Recorder Notes D, E, G, A, B, C, D'
