The Lyrics

Hey, chew it now!
Yeah, hey!

Yeah!
Once I worked at Tyson Chicken
Grabbin' eggs from egg-layin' hens
I never had no problems, yeah
'Til I started slaughterin'

And everything around me, yeah
Got to start to feelin' so gross
And I decided quickly (yes, I did)
To just slow down and let chickens go

Yeah, they were cluckin'
And squawkin'
And swayin' on conveyors
And just when
One reached me
Somebody turned around
And shouted ---

Slay that spunky chicken right, boy!
Slay that spunky chicken right!
Slay that spunky chicken right, boy!
Lay down that cleaver and slay that spunky chicken 'til it dies!
('Til it dies!)
(Oh 'til it dies!)


(funky electric instrumental)


Well, I tried to understand this (Yeah!)
(Huh!) I thought that they were out of their minds!
This work is just so goulish (how could I?)
I hate the hours, left it behind!

So then I went job-huntin', wow!
Showin' them my best re-su-me (Yeah, what'd you do?)
I said, "McDonalds? Okay!" (McDonalds yeah!)
I started there the very next day

Yeah, we were cookin'
Hash-slingin'
And Happy Meals were movin'
McNuggets
Were my job
My supervisor turned
And shouted ---

Fry that funky chicken right, boy!
Fry that funky chicken right!
Fry that funky chicken right, boy!
Lay down that basket and fry that funky chicken 'til it's fried!
('Til it's fried!)
(Yeah!)
(Wow, 'til it's fried!)


(even funkier electric instrumental)


(Hey, wait a minute!)
Now first it wasn't easy
Fryin' Mickey-D each night
'Cause things were getting flaky
I had to leave that cookin' behind

Oh, but now it's so much better (it's so much better)
I'm cleanin' up in ev-er-y way
And I'll never lose that feelin' (no I won't)
Of how I churn my member each day

Clean-in' the mens room
I'm sweepin'
And moppin' up the poopin'
And just when
I did me
Someone opened the door
And shouted ---

Choke that chunky chicken tight, boy!
Choke that chunky chicken tight!
Choke that chunky chicken tight, boy!
Lay down some noogies and choke that chunky chicken 'til you cry!
('Til you cry!)
(Oh, 'til you cry!)


They shouted, "Slay that spunky chicken!" (Slay that spunky chicken!)
Slay that spunky chicken! (Got to keep on --- slay that spunky chicken!)
Fry that funky chicken! (Fr---y that funky chicken!)
Choke that chunky chicken! (Gonna shake my wire now!)

Slay that spunky chicken right, boy!
Slay that spunky chicken right, yeah!

Fry that funky chicken right, boy!
Fry that funky chicken right!

Choke that chunky chicken tight, boy!
Choke that chunky chicken tight, yeah!

Colonel Sanders is turning over in his grave on one of those rotisseree ovens. Which is a good thing. ***** (5 stars)

Funniest stuff I've ever read! Just make sure none of my vegan friends see it! :)

Thank you, Jonathan C. and Russian in the Red!

Say, Russian in the Red, do you like Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker Suite"? Some of us parody writers have been writing parodies of tunes from that famous ballet. Rick Duncan parodied "Dance Of The Reed Flutes", and I wrote a parody of "The Russian Dance".
Russian in the Red - September 24, 2004 - Report this comment
Yes, Johnny D, I do. In fact, in grade four, we did that for our Christmas pageant. I was one of the Sugar Plum Fairies!
Johnny D - September 24, 2004 - Report this comment
Excellent! Then you might get a laugh from my parody of "The Russian Dance" called "It's Barney The Purple Dinosaur!"...it's at this URL:

Hmm, it would appear that the Comment-software inserted a hidden "-" hyphen character in "shtml" in that URL, making that part of the URL show up as "s-html" when the URL is pasted into the browser. If that happens, just delete the bogus "-" hyphen from the URL after you paste it into your browser's Address-window, and then the URL will be correct.

Did I inspire you on this one? Go watch a movie and eat that buttered popcorn till you fart. Good Job. 5's
Johnny D - September 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Lionel! Yes, your "Pop that Orville Redenbacher" is one of two parodies that inspired me here. The other is "Play That Chamber Music, Maestro" by Tim Hall. They're both hilarious!

Haven't enjoy such a good laugh for so long. I'd be even funnier if someone can actually sing it.

(ABC3F) that's fantastic, JD - I was wondering why I'd never seen it, and then I saw it was posted exactly 1 week before I arrived at amiright - great rhythms and matching to the OS - those poor spunky chickens - 555

Great satire, Johnny. This one gave me a, uh, barrel of laughs. -- MM

(ABC3) This one threw me. It's like the Evil Johnny D came in to write the third verse, so that I couldn't really reconcile it with what came beforehand. Funny, but for me, not in the way that others seem to have felt. Sorry.
