The Rooster

I

We had some chickens, no eggs would they lay
Had some chickens, no eggs would they lay
My wife said, Honey, this sure ain't funny
We're losing money, no eggs will they lay
Then a rooster came into our yard
Caught them chickens off their guard
They're laying eggs now like they never used to
Since the rooster came into our yard

II

We had some milk cows, no milk would they give
We had milk cows, no milk would they give
My wife said, Honey, this sure ain't funny
We're losing money, no milk will they give
Then a rooster came into our yard
Caught them milk cows off their guard
They're giving egg-nog like they never used to
Since the rooster came into our yard

III

We had some elephants, no tusks would they grow
We had elephants, no tusks would they grow
My wife said, Honey, this sure ain't funny
We're losing money, no tusks will they grow
Then a rooster came into our yard
Caught those elephants off their guard
They're laying eggs now of solid ivory
Since the rooster came into our yard

IV

We had this rooster, he was so gay
Had a rooster, awfully gay
My wife said, Honey, this sure ain't funny
We're losing money - terrible gay
Then a chicken came into our yard
Caught the rooster off his guard
He's laying hens now like he never used to
Since the chicken came into our yard
