The Lyrics

A sound recording of this parody can be found by clicking on the parody recording link at the end of the song
Hens, well, roosters think that they're hard core
Flap and founder when they try to soar
With these hens I have at home
Egg purchases postponed
I'd recommend, you see
You get a hen or three
(And you'll spend less, you'll see)

Hens are always running here and there
(Unaware!)
Like they are chock full of compressed air
(Full of air!)
If you check out their behind
And eggs aren't what you find
There's someplace they should be
On the rotisserie
(And make a feast for me)

They roost away, 'till dawn's nigh
Fowls do fuss, now at five
(I'll roast a few, wings and thighs)
(Bowls of soup, served with chives)

Pens, of chickens are a fowl array
(Manurey grey)
Nests a-glisten from the turds they spray
(Dirty hay)
So, before those eggs you chew
Yes, sterilize them, do
I.Q.s at minus ten
Nothing has no brain like hens
(No brain)
Like hens
(Like hens)
Like hens

Good parody, really cute! My wife and I just got back from our weekly pick-up of veggies from the organic farm we belong to in a neighboring town...that farm has free-ranging chickens that wander everywhere...one of them's a "guinea hen" that seems to boss the other birds around!

Phil, it was one of MJ's first solo efforts, when he was very very young...

One of my favorite jokes. A country preacher gets up in front of his rural congregation. He starts to chide; "I've been hearing some disturbing things about some of you farmers. I've been hearing rumors of bestiality. I heard some of you are doing "it" with goats!" The crowd was quiet. "And sheep....and cows....and pigs.... and chickens...." One angry farmer jumps up and yells very indignantly "Chickens!!"

Downloaded it and it was worth it (and that's saying a lot - I don't like to download all that much, but I must admit your site is well designed for the novice/absent-minded/clueless downloader. 5's guys...OH...Rick, I liked your joke...

(SOTM) I suspect fowl play here.

(SOTM) I got to laughing so hard at the rotisserie line I had to stop the recording and start over. Nice job! (Ok, I'm really starting to panic about how on Earth I'm going to narrow this month's entries down to just three!)

I'm not sure I can put a coherent comment together - I'm still trying to recover from the recording. Wow.

You have earned extra points for creating humor where humor was not obvious. I, too, liked the rotisserie line best.

DKTOS (did you take the link down?) however I had an excellent omelette this morning and found myself smiling, so 5s from me. The rotisserie line was my highlight as well.
