Ghost Chickens in the Sky

A chicken farmer went out to take a walk one day
He paused by the coop as he walked along his way
All at once a rotten egg hit him in the eye;
It was a sight he dreaded...
Ghost Chickens in the Sky

("Cluck the chorus - sort of - until the last line)
Ghost chickens in the sky

He'd been a chicken farmer since he was twenty-four
Working for the colonel for thirty years or more.
Killing all those chickens and sending them to fry,
And now they want revenge....
Ghost Chickens in the Sky

chorus - get your partner, or audience, to cluck in harmony.

Their beaks were black and shiny, their eyes were fiery red
They had no wings or feathers; these chickens were dead
They picked that farmer up and he died by the claw.
They cooked him extra crispy
And ate him with cole slaw.

chorus - repeat ad nauseum)
