THE ROOSTER SONG
(A. Domino)
FATS DOMINO

There was an ol' lady from Houston
She had two hens and a rooster
Her rooster died, ol' lady cried
My hens don't lay like they used to
Ain't that ashame, ain't that ashame
Ain't that ashame, she lost a helpin' hand
Her next door neighbour O'Cappy
He seems to be very happy
He can plant his corn, they will grow long
'Cause the rover rooster is gone
Ain't that ashame, ain't that ashame
Ain't that ashame, she lost a helpin' hand
I know a lady named Sue
Her rooster died too
She didn't sigh, she didn't cry
She made her a pot of stew
Ain't that ashame, ain't that ashame
Ain't that ashame, she lost a helpin' hand
