The Lyrics

For my daughter Cassie, who now works at our local "chicken" establishment...
Intro(Col. Sanders): I want my KFC.....

Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it
You make the chicken at the KFC
That ain't nothin' that's the way you do it
Money for workin', but the chicken aint free

Now that ain't nothin' that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya them gals made grub
Maybe make a biscuit for your little brother
Maybe make a biscuit for your mum

We gotta use them microwave ovens,
cook in kitchens, no deliveries...
We gotta cook those mash potatoes
We gotta fry that extra crispie...(chicken! not original!)

See the happy sister with the earrings and the makeup
Yeah buddy that's her own car
That little sister got her own great dane
That little sister she's a millionaire

We gotta use them microwave ovens
Cook in kitchens, no deliveries
We gotta cook them mash potatoes
We gotta make mac-n-cheese...

I shoulda learned to make the coleslaw
I shoulda learned to make that grub
Look at that mama, she got a chickin' in the warmer (ah)
Man we could have some lunch
And she's in there, what's that?
How many pieces?
Broilin' in the broiler, likes orig'nal recipe...

That ain't nothin' that's the way you do it
Get your money for workin' but the chicken aint free
We gotta use them microwave ovens
Cook in kitchens, no deliveries
We gotta make them mash potatoes
We gotta have some famous gravy...

Lord Now that ain't nothin' that's the way you do it
You make the chicken at KFC
That ain't nothin' that's the way you do it
Money for workin' but the chicken aint free
Money for workin' but the chicken aint free
