Subject: SONG CHALLENGE! Part 94
From: Áine
Date: 04 Apr 04 - 03:05 PM

I was going to award the appropriate Chips to all the participants in Song Challenge! Part 93 before I did this one; but, this story is just too good to let pass. So, all you Challenge!rs put on your thinking caps, sharpen your crayons and roll out that TP, cuz . . .

You Can't Touch That . . . Chicken!?! -- [Murphy, Oregon] March 25, 2004 -- A Williams man thought he was rescuing a neglected chicken, but the Josephine County Sheriff’s Department saw it as stealing and arrested him early Wednesday.

Nick Gombos was arrested at 1:08 a.m. and charged with third degree theft and interfering with an officer at Gombos’ home on Powell Creek Road. He was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car wearing nothing but his underwear. He was released from jail Wednesday morning five days after he took home a lone chicken from outside Ray’s Food Place, 7200 Williams Highway, in Murphy a few miles south of Grants Pass.

Little did he know that he had driven off with Speckles the celebrity hen, and community members, not to mention Jekyl the rooster, would want her back.

Kathy Dean, Gombos’ wife, said they were not regular shoppers at the store and were only thinking of the chicken.

Dean said Gombos stopped by the market after-hours Thursday for his weekly Nickel newspaper when he noticed a chicken huddled inside the magazine rack.

Assuming it was abandoned, and could easily fall prey to animals or highway drivers, he took the hen home.

The next day, Dean said she learned that the chicken actually lived at the market, but she feared for the chicken’s safety next to a busy parking lot. So the couple purchased a companion hen and rooster, and were making a new home for Speckles. Then, she called the store and told employees she had the chicken.

"Up until the day before yesterday, everyone at Ray’s was fine with us having the chicken," said Dean.

Community members were becoming concerned about the store’s hen in her absence, and soon the store’s staff filed charges. Josephine County Sheriff Dave Daniel said chickens have been living outside the market for several years, and they are something akin to celebrities in the community.

He said deputies tried to keep the situation low-key, but Gombos wouldn’t return the chicken when asked earlier Thursday. So the sheriff’s department obtained a search warrant signed by a judge, a process that took until 1 a.m. They had planned to issue a citation, he said, but Gombos was trying to keep them from getting Speckles.

Sheriff Daniel said deputies asked Dean if she wanted to get clothing for her husband, but she was also uncooperative.

"So he went to jail in his red Speedos," said Daniel.

Dean said she didn’t hear a request for her husband’s clothing, and to be accused of theft is ridiculous.

"The last thing I need is a chicken," she said. "Nick’s not going to steal a chicken."

Meanwhile, Speckles was returned to the market Wednesday.

"The rooster was super excited to see her," said Nate McCully, Ray’s store manager. "He came flying out of a tree."

McCully said he grew up raising chickens and thinks the pair at Ray’s are as safe as any on a farm. He said the two chickens are not owned but live at the market by choice and are cared for by customers and employees. And, like other community members, he’s become attached to them.

"It just wouldn’t feel right coming to the store without the chickens being here," he said.

Gombos is scheduled to appear in court Friday.

Sheriff Daniel said the release agreement requires Gombos to stay away from the market.

"No more contact with Speckles," he said.


GO FOR IT, CHALLENGE!RS!!

As I walked out on the streets of Murphy
As I walked out in Murphy one day
I spied a young felon a-dressed just in speedos
a-dressed in just speedos as they took him away.

they say that he was a lone chicken rustler
A kid-napping chickens from outside of Ray's
He says he was just in the market for papers,but
He hi-jacked that chicken, and stole her away.

Now Jekyl the rooster's alone at the grocery
they say that poor Jeckyl just fadin' away
He mourns for his loved one, his own darlin' Speckles
Since that speedo'd rustler done took her from Ray's.

Rooster's Revenge


Tune: Git Along, Li'l Dogies (click to Play)


As I was out riding down past Williams Highway,
Past the wee town of Murphy I rambled, and then
I spied a poor chicken, hiding out in a news-rack,
She was cold, she was tired, and she needed a friend

Whoopie ti-y-yi-, git along Sheriff Daniel
Get along with your red light and your deputies so strong
Whoopie ti-yi-yi, git along, Sherriff Daniels
We'll be soon getting even, and it will not be long!


I brought the bird home, and bought it companions,
I paid for its feed, and I paid for its shots
I never imagined I would soon be surrounded,
On account of some roosdter with a case of ht ehots

Whoopie ti-y-yi-, git along Sheriff Daniel
Get along with your red light and your deputies so strong
Whoopie ti-yi-yi, git along, Sherriff Daniels
We'll be soon getting even, and it will not be long!


Back in old Murphy, that rooster did languish
He was crying and crowing through half of the night
He needed his chicken for natural reasons
And was telling the world that he thought 'twas not right!

Whoopie ti-y-yi-, git along Sheriff Daniel
Get along with your red light and your deputies so strong
Whoopie ti-yi-yi, git along, Sherriff Daniels
We'll be soon getting even, and it will not be long!


At last all the locals, they could take it no longer,
They were all losing sleep, looking pallid and sick
So they called Sherriff Daniels and he called out his squadcars
Recover that chicken! And bring me that Nick!

Whoopie ti-y-yi-, git along Sheriff Daniel
Get along with your red light and your deputies so strong
Whoopie ti-yi-yi, git along, Sherriff Daniels
We'll be soon getting even, and it will not be long!


In the wee early hours, they surrounded Nick's trailer
His wife, half asleep, to provide clothes did fail
She couldn't believe, for the sake of one chicken
That Nick (in red Speedos_ was going to jail

Cho

Early that morning they brought back the chicken
And with her red rooster, united in lust!!
"Well done, then, mavourneen", the rooster said to her!
"Another darn biped has bitten the dust!"

Whoopie ti-y-yi-, git along Sheriff Daniel
Get along with your red light and your deputies so strong
Whoopie ti-yi-yi, git along, Sherriff Daniels
We'll be soon getting even, and it will not be long!


But humans are smarter and their memories longer
That chicken she quickly ran plumb out of luck;
Next Wednesday a strange cardboard box was delivered
To Kentucky Fried Chicken from a UPS Truck!


Whoopie ti-y-yi-, git along Sheriff Daniel
Get along with your red light and your deputies so strong!
Whoopie ti-yi-yi, git along, Sheriff Daniels
We'll be soon getting even, and it will not be long!

Ol' Rooster Blues

Jekyl's a market rooster, that rooster moaned a crow one day
Oh, Jekyl's a market rooster, and he moaned a crow one day
His dear hen ain't in the barnyard and everything has turnt to gray.

I heard the dog next door bark, and my hound began to howl
I heard the dog next door bark and my hound began to howl
I said you better all watchout, that Gombos man is on the prowl.

Says he came to shop, but he picked up my little hen
Says he came to shop but he picked up my little ol' hen
He just don't want her layin' eggs -- for any other men.

Sherriff oh sherriff, please bring my hen back home
Sherriff oh sherriff, please bring my hen back home
Please return dear Speckles before that rooster starts to roam.

Sherrif Daniel found dear Speckles and the man he was blue
Sheriff Daniel found dear Speckles and the man he was blue
Carried him off to jail-- in just a little red speedo.

Jekyl the little rooster, he's been crowin' ever since
Jekyl the little rooster he's been crowin' ever since
Cause speckles in in the barnyard and she's layin', she's layin' she's layin his eggs again.....

Why does a chicken coop have two doors?
If it had four it would be a sedan!

HE'S IN THE HENHOUSE NOW
(Sung to Jimmie Rodgers,He's in the Jailhouse Now)

I knew a guy named Poultry Nick,
He had a little thing for a speckled chick,
He thought he was the slickest guy around,
He snuck in like a phantom,
& Swiped that little bantom,
Now he's in the henhouse at the edge of town,
He's in the henhouse now,
He's in the henhouse now,
The townfolk all did howl,
When he made off with that fowl,
He's in the henhouse now.

The sheriff of the county,
Placed on Nick's head a bounty,
They hauled him off in shackles & his briefs,
"We'll get our man,is our credo",
"Even when he's in his speedo",
& All the townsfolk stared in disbelief,
He's in the henhouse now,
He's in the henhouse now,
& If he flies the coop,
Just follow that trail of chicken poop,
He's in the henhouse now.

Now all you Leghorns & you Pullets,
Better load your guns with bullets,
Cause word is out that Nick's been sneakin' round,
All you Friers & you Broilers,
Don't you let 'em be a spoiler,
Gaurd your McNuggets at every little sound,
Cause he's in the henhouse now,
He's in the henhouse now,
After you he will persue,
& He's worse than Frank Perdue,
He's in the henhouse now.

D.B.



What do you get when you cross a chicken with a guitar?
A chicken that makes music when you pluck it!

Charley, now that's some fowl humor!

I decided to go country on this one (after a little push from Uncle Amos). Don't think it'll get me on Nashville Star; but, that may be a good thing ;-)

Nicky, Don't Bring That Chicken Back Home From Ray's Food Place
(Tune: Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys)

Nicky, don't bring that chicken back home from Ray's Food Place.
Those SPCA folks will get up in arms,
When they can't get next to her free-ranging charms.
Nicky, don't bring that chicken back home from Ray's Food Place.
She just has to roam, she'll never stay home, it's that ol' rooster Jekyll she loves.


Chickens that live up in Murphy, they're easy to love.
That's why on occasion, they can get scooped up from above.
They might look easy, with loose wings and feathered behinds.
But they're here to stay, so the townsfolk all say, and they belong with their own kind.

Nicky, don't bring that chicken back home from Ray's Food Place.
Those SPCA folks will get up in arms,
When they can't get next to her free-ranging charms.
Nicky, don't bring that chicken back home from Ray's Food Place.
She just has to roam, she'll never stay home, it's that ol' rooster Jekyll she loves.


Speckles and Jekyll were cozy and snug in the news bin.
When Nicky's cold hands went searching for something to love.
But ol' Sherriff Daniels was put on the case in a rush then.
And he wasn't too sweet, in his squad car seat, when he pushed Nicky's red Speedo'd tush in.

Nicky, don't bring that chicken back home from Ray's Food Place.
Those SPCA folks will get up in arms,
When they can't get next to her free-ranging charms.
Nicky, don't bring that chicken back home from Ray's Food Place.
She just has to roam, she'll never stay home, it's that ol' rooster Jekyll she loves.

Oh my name it is Jekyl the rooster
And a terrible thing has occurred,
For a Chicknapper name of Nick Gombos
Has made off with my sweet Speckled Bird>

Oh she is the best hen on the car-park
We lived there for many a year,
And the good folk of Murphy all knew us,
And fed us on crisps and root beer!

But Speckles, she took to Budweiser,
Tho' I said it would lead her astray,
She was sleeping one off when he saw her
And the fowl (foul?) scoundrel took her away!

His success was short lived, Sherrif Daniel
Made a dawn raid to set Speckles free,
And hauled Gombos away in his Speedo's
And brought back my darling to me!

Now peace is restored to the car park,
The Sherrif was good as his word
And I'm back in my rooster heaven
On the back of my Great Speckled Bird!

Excellent first Challenge!, FC! And here is your very first B.L.O.B. (that's Best Line O' Bull) award for this snappy verse:

But Speckles, she took to Budweiser,
Tho' I said it would lead her astray,
She was sleeping one off when he saw her
And the fowl (foul?) scoundrel took her away!


I'm glad to see someone looking at this situation from poor Jekyll's POV. ;-) And why did Nick nab only the hen??? What was poor Jekyll, chopped liver???

Welcome to the Song Challenge!

The Rustling of Speckles, the Celebrity Hen

Late in the evenin' on William's Highway
For a news-paper he went, and he stopped at Old Ray's
In the magazine rack, by surprise he was stricken
When he saw roosting there, a beautiful chicken

He thought she was handsome, he thought she was fine
"O! Rara avis! Would that you were mine!"
She was bound to be roadkill, or come to some harm
So he took her back home, tucked under his arm.

CHORUS:
        You may sing of your ostriches, eagles or owls,
        Talk turkey or pheasant, or do-mestic fowls
        May his name be forever accursed among men
        Who stole Speckles, the famous celebrity hen

Despite earnest entreaties to hen-thievin Nick 'n'
His wife, they refused to surrender the chicken
The sheriff was called in, and he gave his word,
He'd raise up a posse and recover the bird

CHORUS

They got them a warrant and rescued poor Speckles
And arrested old Nick in his Speedos and freckles
He won't need his Speedos, that hen-rustlin fool
Cause down in the County Jail, there ain't no pool.

CHORUS


... sorry..

Definitely no apology needed, Scabby! That's a great song ;-) And here's your B.L.O.B. for this perfectly unblemished verse:

They got them a warrant and rescued poor Speckles
And arrested old Nick in his Speedos and freckles
He won't need his Speedos, that hen-rustlin fool
Cause down in the County Jail, there ain't no pool.


I love the freckles line, by the way!

Just thinking about what was Jekyll doing when Speckles was snatched?
Hyding perhaps?

Oh well

Sad Tale of the Bipolar Rooster
(Tune: Acres of Clams)

Oh, Jekyll's my name, I'm a rooster
And it's strange is the tale I will tell!
I was madly in love with young Speckles
A hen from the south end of hell.
I courted her slowly and quickly
But she badgered my soul 'til I cried
She was bitchy and sour and wicked
And she brought out my Hyde from inside.

Now my Hyde is a strange alter-ego
He is foaming and savage and cruel
While my true self is loving and thoughtful
And a bit of a panderin' fool.
I was startled and angry and panicked
When that hen was purloined from her shelf!
But rather than attack Mister Nickles
I hid in a tree, by myself.

I was sure if I let out my anger
I would sure meet an untimely end,
I'd become a most rabid attacker
And end up imprisoned, my friend.
That's not how I wanted to end, sir
So I kept Hyde hidden deep in me head,
I had nothing to hide sir, but Hyde, sir, itself
So I slept with a barn owl instead.

Regards,


A

Bloody Brilliant, darlin' Amos!! And I had to pick the following verse for your well-earned B.L.O.B.:

I was sure if I let out my anger
I would sure meet an untimely end,
I'd become a most rabid attacker
And end up imprisoned, my friend.
That's not how I wanted to end, sir
So I kept Hyde hidden deep in me head,
I had nothing to hide sir, but Hyde, sir, itself
So I slept with a barn owl instead.


Way to go!
