cetmst Songs about chickens (158* d) Lyr Add: WILL THERE BE CHICKENS IN PARADISE 02 Nov 09

The Mill Run Dulcimer Band on the album "We Shall Meet" record
"Will There Be Chickens In Paradise?" attributed to Emily Luertzing and Neal Walters. "This song, straight from Vineland NJ, the egg basket of America, poses the profound philosophical question that haunts us all. With a special guest appearance from the Sister Cluckers".

Will there be chickens in Paradise,
In that sweet bye and bye,
Any roosters and hens all freed of their sins,
In that great chicken coop in the sky?

Will there be chickens in Paradise
Perched on the throne of our Lord,
Hatchin'and layin' and peckin' and prayin',
Crowin' a heavenly chord?

Will I see my old friends in Paradise,
Henrietta and old Chanticleer?
I'd be so lonely in Paradise
If those sweet little pluckers weren't there.


Will the Colonel be thrown from his heavenly home?
Only the future will tell,
For the chicken he's et, I'm sure it's a pet.
He'll be deep fat fryin' in Hell.


Will there be chickens in Paradise
Roostin' in clouds in God's sky?
They'll be the only angels in Paradise
Too dumb to learn how to fly.

Cho: (accompanied by the Sister Cluckers)
