Chickie song

    This is a song my 6th grade teacher taught us. I wondered if anyone else had ever heard it.

    I had a little chicken

    wouldn't lay an egg

    poured hot water

    up and down her leg

    little chicken hollered

    little chicken cried

    little chicken laid

    a hard boiled egg

    Same here, never heard that one. I always felt sorry for the Old Red Rooster (didn't want her to `come around the mountain').

    Here are a couple of links to search through (Lib. of Congress has quite a few recordings - among other things - check out the 1855 Broadside: The Naughty Chicken - good poem for little guys - some lessons never change). Also nice recording of the Chicken Reel.

    (just type in chicken in the search box)

    http://www.ibiblio.org/keefer/kwframe.htm

    (same: Keyword Search: Chicken)

    The folk music Database has no sound recordings but more links and info than I could get through in two lifetimes.

    Good Luck hunting it down!

    We are showing our age. I remember it from when I was a little girl.
