The Rooster Song

(during the verses the leader sings each line and everyone else
repeats. Chorus is sung all
together while clapping hands.) 

I had a chicken 
That wouldn't lay any eggs 
I had a chicken 
That wouldn't lay any eggs 


Until that rooster came in my yard 
And caught that chicken right off her guard 
We're getting eggs now just like we used to 
Ever since that rooster came in my yard
