What do your roosters sing/say when they crow?

    Perhaps I just have an overactive imagination, but I hear songs or words when certain roosters crow. There are about a half dozen that I keep to husband my hens, and other cockerels that are growing out towards the table. So I get to hear a lot of different variations on the basic "cock-a-doodle-doo" theme.

    There was one who sang the opening bars of the Get Smart theme song: "er-er-errRRR-RAH!" Then after listening to the book Around the World in 80 Days there was another young roo whose crow sounded like he was saying the name of Mr Fogg's valet Passepartout: "Pass-pah-TOOOOO!"

    Is it just me, or do you also hear songs or words when your roosters crow?

    My friend use to have a little roo who would squat, look straight at the ground, and
    Crow. It sounded like he was crowing/saying "Look!! A bottom!! Awhwwww.."
    Lol!! True story. Bizarre right?

    I have a splash Jersey Giant who has the oddest crow, almost like he is inhaling on the last syllable. One friend says he sounds asthmatic, and another said, "Oh, he's humming the last part because he doesn't know all the words!"

    Imagine this: "THIS IS MY CROW, ohwaitiforgotthewords...". And the next one, "I GOT IT NOW!!!.... Ohnoidon't"
