A Chicken Ain

A Chicken Ain't Nothing But A Bird

Louis Jordan

(Babe Wallace, Decca 24643, 1949)

Everybody's talkin' about chicken
Chicken's a popular word
But anyway you go, you're bound to find
A chicken ain't nothing but a bird
Some people call it a fowl
That's the story I've heard
But let 'em call it this and let 'em call it that
A chicken ain't nothing but a bird
You can boil it, roast it, broil it
Put it in a pan or pot
Brown it!
Eat it with patatoes, rice or tomatoes
Chicken is still what you got, boy
It was a dish for ol' Cesar
Also King Henry the Third
But Columbus was hip, he said take this tip
A chicken ain't nothing but a bird

You can boil it, roast it, broil it
Put it in a pan or pot
Brown it!
Eat it with patatoes, rice or tomatoes
Chicken is still what you got, boy
It was a dish for ol' Cesar
Also King Henry the Third
But Columbus was hip, he said take this tip
A chicken ain't nothing but a bird
A chicken ain't nothing but a bird
