The Lyrics

A song about the perils of self-importance. Dedicated to John.
Stood there boldly
Crowin’ in the sun
Around the barnyard
Watchin’ chickens run
The corn was tasty
My comb erect and long
Like a cock

I was grain-fed
Feathers debonair
Fertilizations
Gave my daily share
The grass was green and
Love was in the air
Like a cock

My beak was pointy
My tail was dynamite
My craw was wobbly
My feet were pink and white
And I had six hens
And kept ‘em in my sight
Like a cock

Like a cock, hypervigilant and loud
Like a cock, standin’ tall above the crowd
Like a cock, I was puffy and proud
Like a cock

Then a hen madly raced
Through the fence’s narrow space--
Of course, I hustled to retrieve!
As I pecked and she squawked--
Stupid neighbor’s dog!
He killed with razor-like teeth!!!

Where’s my wings now?
Where'd they go?
Giblet sack--
I don't know--
I guess it’s no mystery now
Where they've gone…

I s’pose I should have stayed--
Now I'm bathed in a marinade!
As I remember the barnyard days
When I was tall,
Head and all…

Like a cock, ego incarnate
Like a cock, scurryin’ out the gate
Like a cock, stuffed upon a plate
Like a cock

Oh, like a cock, with herbs rubbed on my skin
Like a cock, roasted at 410
Like a cock, I’m coq au vin at din’
Like a cock
Oh, like a cock

Very, very clever parody with excellent rhyming and and an excellent conclusion. But isn't it more accurate to say that the subject of the parody IS a c*** than is like a cock?

Interestingly, AmiRight's form editor added the *s the first time I used the c-word above, but not the second time.

Great parody, Bob, and I too thought that the parody was about a sex organ rather than a rooster. 5s.

Thanks, everybody for your kind comments. I had so much fun walking the line on this one, and it is to AmiRight's credit that the editors let it through. Great website, great OS. Bonified, heh-heh!
