MandolinPaul Lyr Req: A Chicken Ain't Nothin' but a Bird (13) Chicken 09 Nov 00

Hey kids.

About ten years ago, when I was in college, I used to see these two guys play a song called Chicken. I'm pretty sure that they didn't write it. It had a slight ragtime feel to it. Here are some of the words:

You can roast 'em
Boil or broil 'em
Cook 'em in a pan or a pot
You can serve 'em with potatoes
Rice or tomatoes
But chicken is still what you got

It was a dish for old Caesar
King Arthur & King Henry the Third
You can call it what you wish
But when you lay it on the dish
A chicken ain't nothin' but a bird

Anybody? If you know the chords as well, that'd be great. But if I can at least get the lyrics, I can muddle through.

Thanks, eh.
