They say that roses are red and violets are purple
Sugar is sweet and so is maple syrple
I'm the seventh out of a seventh son
My pappy was a pistol, I'm a son of a gun
They said that Roger Miller was on drugs when he wrote this but I sort of disagree. It's still funny 37 years later.

A chicken ain't a chicken 'til it's lickin' good an' fried,
Keep on the sunny side,
My uncle used to love me, but she died.
No, Roger Miller did not have a transvestite uncle, nor was he drunk when he penned this ditty (although he might have been trying to meet a deadline). This is merely the King of the Road at his silliest. I still laugh when I recall the time he sang this on The Muppet Show (much to the consternation of a nearby group of muppet chickens).
