    I thought folks here would appreciate this. A Shanghai is a Cochin, I believe.

    There is a song called the Shanghai Rooster Yodel by Cliff Carlisle from the 1930s.

    Here are some of the lyrics:

    What makes the shanghai crow at the break of day?
    What makes the shanghai crow at the break of day?
    To let the dominecker hen know the big man is on the way.

    Shanghai said you ought to hear that dominecker lie (2x)
    She said she loves no one but me but I caught her with another shanghai.


    You can hear a little of the song by Cliff Carlisle here:
