AIN'T NOBODY HERE BUT US CHICKENS
(Whitney - Kramer)
LOUIS JORDAN (Mercury 71023, 1956)

One night farmer Brown was takin' the air
He locked up the barnyard with the greatest of care
Down in the henhouse something stirred
When he shouted "who's there?", this is what he heard
There ain't nobody here but us chickens
There ain't nobody here at all
So calm yourself, stop that fuss
There ain't nobody here but us
We chickens tryin' to sleep and you bust in
And hobble-hobble, hobble-hobble, it's a sin
There ain't nobody here but us chickens
There ain't nobody here at all
You're stompin' around and shakin' the ground
You're kickin' up an awful dust
We chickens tryin' to sleep and you bust in
And hobble-hobble, hobble-hobble, it's a sin
Hey, tomorrow is a busy day
We got things to do, we got eggs to lay
We got ground to dig and worms to scratch
It takes a lot of sittin' gettin' chicks to hatch
There ain't nobody here but us chickens
There ain't nobody here at all
So calm yourself and stop that fuss
There ain't nobody here but us
Kindly point that gun the other way
And hobble-hobble, hobble off and hit the hay

Hey, tomorrow is a busy day
We got things to do, we got eggs to lay
We got ground to dig and worms to scratch
It takes a lot of sittin' gettin' chicks to hatch
There ain't nobody here but us chickens
There ain't nobody here at all
So calm yourself and stop that fuss
There ain't nobody here but us
Kindly point that gun the other way
And hobble-hobble, hobble off and hit the hay
Hey bossman, what'd you say
It's easy pickin'
There ain't nobody here but us chickens!
