Cock-a-doodle-doo said Chickie-boo

For the first time today

And we all sat upright on our chairs

And the hens clucked their hurray


Cock-a-doodle-doo said Chickie-boo

Stretching neck and looking shocked

He’d always thought he was a person

His foundations have been rocked


Cock-a-doodle-doo said Chickie-boo

And the hens came out the bush

All their heads are bobbing up and down

And their eyes are bright and flush

Then old grey hen did a victory lap

At high speed around the yard

And the younger birds came rushing back

through the gate that we had barred


Cock-a-doodle-doo said Chickie-boo

And our flock is looking up

All three hens are sparkling happily

As they fluff their feathers up

Now they’re crowding round our Chickie

And they’re looking mighty pleased

They all glow bright-eyed and healthy

Though they went to roost diseased


Cock-a-doodle-doo said Chickie-boo

Stretching wings and neck and thigh

And he’s looking kind of handsome now

He’s got a twinkle in his eye


Cock-a-doodle-doo said Chickie-boo

“There’s a cock around the place,

Now I’m going to bring some order”

And the hens bow to his grace
