    I found a streaming audio website that has one of my favorite songs, and since it is a song about chickens, I thought I'd share the
    link...
    Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens

    By: Louis Jordan

    This song hit #1 on the R&B music charts, and stayed there for 17 weeks, in 1946...

    Here are the lyrics:

    One night farmer Brown,
    Was takin` the airs,
    Locked up the barnyard
    With the greatest of care
    Down in the henhouse
    Somethin` stirred
    When he shouted `Who`s there?`
    This is what he heard:

    There ain`t nobody here but us chickens
    There ain`t nobody here at all
    So calm yourself,
    And stop your fuss
    There ain`t nobody here but us
    We chickens tryin` to sleep,
    And you butt in
    And hobble, hobble hobble hobble
    With your chin

    There ain`t nobody here but us chickens
    There ain`t nobody here at all
    You`re stompin` around
    And shakin` the ground,
    You`re kickin` up an awful dust
    We chicken`s tryin` to sleep
    And you butt in
    And hobble, hobble hobble hobble
    It`s a sin

    Tomorrow
    Is a busy day
    We got things to do
    We got eggs to lay
    We got ground to dig
    And worms to scratch
    It takes a lot of settin`
    Gettin` chicks to hatch

    There ain`t nobody here but us chickens
    There ain`t nobody here at all
    So quiet yourself,
    And stop your fuss
    There ain`t nobody here but us
    Kindly point that gun,
    The other way
    And hobble, hobble hobble off and
    Hit the hay

    Tomorrow
    Is a busy day
    We got things to do
    We got eggs to lay
    We got ground to dig
    And worms to scratch
    It takes a lot of settin`
    Gettin` chicks to hatch

    There ain`t nobody here but us chickens
    There ain`t nobody here at all
    So quiet yourself,
    And stop your fuss
    There ain`t nobody here but us
    Kindly point that gun,
    The other way
    And hobble, hobble hobble off and
    Hit the hay

    SHOUTED:
    `Hey boss man
    What do ya say?`

    It`s easy pickin's,
    There ain`t nobody here but us chickens


    I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do...

    I like that song! Only heard of it now, but quite interesting.
    If only my chickens could talk like that. [​IMG]
