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!

About zookeeper12

I am the very blessed mother of 12 and wife to Craig. We are God's favorites. Oops. I think that might have been a secret. We have been homeschooling since 1992 and recently received new curriculum in the form of a catering business started in November of 2010. Our newest season of adventure comes with 2 grandbabies and I'm sure God has more in store for us! Oh, and we're all pretty goofy. This blog is pretty random - everything from recipes and organization to spiritual issues and child raising.I might go on an occasional political rant but so many are already doing that, I will try to restrain myself and save it for the "pros." This is also a journal of our adventures as a family. So many folks have asked me to write a book - this is the best I can do and there are enough books on big, homeschooling families. I'm too random for a book anyway. What's not shared is lost. That's why I'm here.
