alice the chicken


one sunny sunday alice came to supper
but please don’t tell our friend john
he was there yet unaware that she was at the table
he didn’t notice it was alice the chicken they were feeding on
alice the chicken was always john’s favorite
and she would follow where he led
many times john had saved her from the campbell’s can
because he noticed it was alice the chicken, his brothers put in the van
john will tell you alice was so special
and he might tell you that she did tricks
but if she did then it was with the roosters in the barn
everyone knew that it was alice the chicken, loosest chick on the farm
john did love the brown eggs that she gave
and so fed her ‘til she became quite large
she was so large that she could feed the family clan
and so they voted to put alice the chicken in the frying pan
it’s twenty years and john still misses her
and he still thinks that she ran away
no one ever has confessed to that evil deed
they just told him that alice the chicken got lost looking for feed
one sunny sunday alice came to supper
but please don’t tell our friend john
he was there yet unaware that she was at the table
he didn’t notice that it was alice the chicken, they were feeding on
