HEY LITTLE HEN (Ralph Butler / Noel Gay) Nat Gonella Also recorded by: Chas and Dave; Joe Loss. (Cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck) (Spoken) Hey, little hen, how about laying me an egg. (Chicken noises to music) Now, listen, cut out the singing. I want you to lay me an egg. ("Too tired".in chicken voice) Too tired, nothing. Lay me an egg! ("Are you registered with me?" .in chicken voice) Now listen, I don't want to be registered with you, I'll probably pull a feather off you in a minute (Squawk, cluck, cluck, cluck) (Squawk, cluck, cluck, cluck) Now don't get mad, don't get mad (Sung) I had a lot of chickens, a large chicken run But owing to conditions I'm now down to one I give her all the tit-bits the dear little thing And just to keep her up to scratch, I go to her and sing: Hey little hen, when, when, when Will you lay me an egg for my tea. Hey little hen, when, when, when Will you try to supply one for me Get into your nest, Do your little best, Get it off your chest, I can do the rest. Hey little hen, when, when, when Will you lay me an egg for my tea. (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - November 2005)
