I was out at the hen house
And on me knees
I thought I heard the chicken sneeze
It was only the rooster saying his prayers
Thanking the Lord for the Hens upstairs

We had some chickens no eggs would they lay
We had some chickens no eggs would they lay
The wife said honey we're loosing money
Because those chickens no eggs would they lay

Then came a rooster into our yard
And he caught them chickens right off their guard
They're laying eggs now like they never used to
Since that rooster came into our yard

We had a moo cow no milk would she give
We had a moo cow no milk would she give
O' the wife said honey we're loosing money (Oh yeah)
Because that moo cow no milk would she give

Then came a rooster into our yard
And caught that moo cow right off her guard
She's giving yoghurt like she never used to
Since that rooster came into our yard

We had an elephant and no tusks would he grow
We had a elephant and no tusks would he grow
The wife said honey we're loosing money (Oh yeah)
Because that elephant no tusks would he grow

Then came a rooster into our yard
And caught that elephant right off his guard
He's laying eggs now out of solid ivory
Since that rooster came into our yard

We had a rooster he was awfully gay
We had a rooster he was funny that way
O' the wife said honey we're loosing money
Because that rooster he's funny that way

Then came a chicken came into our yard
She caught that rooster right off his guard
He's laying hens now like he never used to
Since that chicken came into our yard
