The Lyrics

Here it is with some extra seasoning:

What is Chicken? (ala "What is Hip?")

So you wanna dump out yo trick bag,
Ease into a chick'n bag.
But you ain't just exactly sure what's chick'n.

So you shop the Euro trade show
Go nail down all the transpo'
But somehow you know there's much more to the trip

What is chick'n?
Tell me tell me, if you think ya know.
What is chick'n?
And if it's really chick'n, the packing slip will show,
You ordered Chick'nStrips, maybe chick'ner than chick'n.
But what is chick'n?

So you became part of the new creed
Shopping for only the best breed
Cooking out with the so-called gourmet set
Been using all the right spices,
Paying just the right prices.
Should be satisfied,
But still it ain't quite right.

What is chick'n?
Tell me tell me if you think you know.
What is chick'n?
And if it's really chick'n, the packing slip will show,
You ordered Chick'nStrips, maybe chick'ner than chick'n.
WHAT IS CHICK'N?

Chick'n just is what it is!
Chick'n just is what it is!
Chick'n just is what it is!

And sometimes Chick'n is what it ain't!

You done went and found you a guru,
In an effort to learn you a new stew.
And maybe you managed to raise your artistic level.

But while striving to buy the right bird
There's customs to observe
What's chick'n today might become pate'.

What is chick'n?
Tell me tell me if you think you know.
What is Chick'n?
And if it's really chick'n, the packing slip will show,
You ordered Chick'nStrips, maybe chick'ner than chick'n.
What is chick'n?
Think about it Y'all!

What is chick'n?
Tell me tell me, if you think you know
What is chick'n?
If it's really chick'n, the packing slip will show
What is chick'n?
Tell me tell me, if you think you know
What is chick'n?
If it's really chick'n, the packing slip will show
What is chick'n?
Ahhhhhhhhh!

What is chick'n?
I'd like to know!
What is chick'n?
Is it in the name of the bird?
What is chick'n?
Is it in the use of the word?
What is chick'n?
I'd like to know.
What is chick'n?
I'd like to know.
What is chick'n?
What is chick'n y'all? Hey!
What is chick'n?
Hey! Oh!
What is chick'n?
What is hip y'all?
What is chick'n?
I wanna know.
What is chick'n?
Ahhhhhhh!
What is chick'n?
Hey I wanna know what chickn is!
