Ein delikater Song:


Two college boys from dear old Yale blew into New York town

For they were wise that on Broadway some chickens could be found.

They stroll'd around until they met two girlies just sixteen,

With rougish smile and golden hair and eyes that were a dream,

They grabb'd those maidens quick and both cried oh! you chick



Ev'rybody loves a chicken

Ev'rybody wants a girl that's cute and neat

All the boys they love small ones,

They don't care for old or tall ones

They love them thin and sweet

Ev'rybody loves a chicken

And that is why when girls pass by you'll hear the boys all cry

Chick! chick! chick! chick! chick! chick! chick!

Chick! chick! chick! chick! chick! chick! chick!

Oh! what I'd do for a chicken like you

Ev'rybody loves a chicken.


These college chaps have married and their lives are long, sweet dreams

Because the maidens they have won are dainty chicken queens.

No more they'll wander 'round the town and flirt as chicks pass by,

No gay white way, they've had their day, but they are bound to cry

When wifey cuddles near and whispers in his ear
