Ghost Chickens in the Sky

Ghost Chickens in the Sky

For the fun of it….

It’s a shame they took a perfectly good song like “Ghost Chickens in the Sky” to make such a ridiculous parody like “Ghost Riders in the Sky.” What’s the world coming to?

(I don’t remember where we found this song but I DO know we were searching online for goofy I mean, serious, songs to sing on our trip to Florida a few years ago.  Originally, it referred to “the Colonel” but I like Chick-fil-a so you can change it back if you want but we like the change.)

 

A chicken farmer went out

One dark and stormy day

Against the coop he rested

As he went along his way

All at once a rotten egg hit him in the eye

It was the sight he dreaded:

Ghost chickens in the sky.

 

(Chorus)

Yippee ki yay

Yippee ki oh-oh-oh

Ghost chickens in the sky

 

The farmer raised these chickens since he was twenty-four

Working for Chick-fil-a for thirty years or more

Killing all these chickens and sending them to fry

Now they want revenge….Ghost Chickens in the sky.

(Chorus)

 

The farmer raised these chickens since he was twenty-four

Working for Chick-fil-a for thirty years or more

Killing all these chickens and sending them to fry

Now they want revenge….Ghost Chickens in the sky.

(Chorus)

 

Their beaks were black and shiny, their eyes a burnin’ red,

They had no meat or feathers, these chickens all were dead.

They picked the farmer up; he died by the claw.

They fried him extra crispy….and ate him with coleslaw.

(Chorus – repeat last line)

 

True story.

What’s not shared is lost,

Michelle

Enjoy!
