Cluck Old Hen

Here is an old favorite of mine to sing in the Carnival parade!

I had an old hen she had a wooden leg
Best old hen that ever laid an egg
Laid more eggs than any hen around the barn
Another drink of whiskey wouldn’t do me any harm

Cluck old hen cluck and sing
Aint seen an egg since way last spring
Cluck old hen cluck and squall,
Aint laid an egg since way last fall

My old hen’s a good old hen
She lays eggs for the railroad men
Sometimes a dozen sometimes two
Just enough for the whole damn crew

Cluck old hen, cluck in the lot
Next time you cackle you’ll cackle in the pot
Old hen she cackled, she cackled in the stable
Next time she cackled, she cackled on the table.
