lyrics

The rooster said to the hen
When you lay your eggs I'll protect them
Don't lay them in the farmers coup
I've found a spot next to the fox’s den
I know it sounds crazy
But trust me just this once
They'll never suspect a thing
And if they do I'll eat them for lunch

Well the hen said back to the rooster,
“I'll lay my eggs wherever I want to
Don't tell me how to be a mother
Until your feathers are white and you're silent at sunrise
Oh you've got a lot to learn
But I love you and your morning song
Don't tell me what to do
They're my eggs and I get to choose.”

So the rooster said back to the hen,
“Remember that time we got lost in the barn
You were sure you knew the way
But I had to call out for the farmer’s help
I don't doubt that you know this time
But I care too much not to speak my mind
If I didn't say a thing
I'd regret it for the rest of my life.”

The hen yelled back at the rooster,
“Now I see what you're really after
If I'm wrong you'll say I told you so
And from now on I should just follow you
But mister rooster we're a team
And if I'm wrong then you're wrong with me
We're not young if there's a mess to clean
We don't say, “Well it wasn't me.”
I know it sounds crazy
But trust me just this once
Their my eggs and I get to choose
Which baskets they fit into
