I GET THE NECK OF THE CHICKEN From the film "Seven Days' Leave" (1942) (Jimmy McHugh / Frank Loesser) Freddy Martin & Orch. (vocal: Eddie Stone) - 1943 Cab Calloway & Orch. - 1943 Bob Dorough - 1997 Hannah Richardson - 2001 (There's always one in every fam'ly And nobody loves him one bit There's always one in every fam'ly) And confidentially, I'm it I get the neck of the chicken I get the rumble seat ride I get the leaky umbrella Everyone shoves me aside When I jump in my shower each morn' Sure as fate, I'm too late, All the hot water is gone I get the neck of the chicken I get that burnt piece of toast I get that seat in the movies Smacko! in back of the post That's why I can't get over this dream that came true If I get the neck of the chicken How did I ever get you? (Orchestral Break) I get the neck of the chicken That's how they give me the bird And in the family snapshot Mine is the face that's all blurred When morning paper comes to the door Sure as fate, I'm too late And they're mine long about four I get the neck of the chicken I get the plate with the crack I get those evenings with Granma Everyone else can relax That's why I can't get over this fine howdy-do If I get the neck of the chicken How did I ever get you? (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2004)
