Here are two similar versions of the song:
Part One of the Round:
Rufus Rustus Johnson Brown,
Oh what you gonna do when the rain comes down
Oh what ya gonna do and what ya gonna say
If you can't pay the rent 'till the rain goes away
Part Two of the Round:
C- thats the way it begins
H- is the next letter in
I- you're in the middle of the word
C- you've already heard
K- now you're roundin' the bend
E- you're nearin' the end
That's the way you spell CHICKEN!
(note: there is no line for "N")
Oh Roofus Rastus Johnson Brown
What ya gonna do when the rent comes round.
What ya gonna do? What ya gonna say?
What ya gonna do come the Judgement Day?
Oh you know, he know, we all know,
Landlord kick you out in the snow.
Roofus Rastus Johnson Brown
What ya gonna do when the rent comes round?
C- that's the way you begin
H- that's the second letter in
I- I am the third
And C is the fourth letter in that word
Well, O - K I'm fill'in in
E- I'm near the end.
That is the way you spell chicken
