Well, a hen and a rooster from way out West Said the hen to the rooster, "I love you the best" The rooster said, "You're a pop-eyed liar, I seen you flirting with the big Shanghai" Who broke the lock? I don't know Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Well, I'll find out before I go Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Down in the henhouse on my kness I thought I heard a chicken sneeze It was only rooster saying his prayers And thanking the Lord for the hens upstairs Who broke the lock? I don't know Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Well, I'll find out before I go Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Now, my old hen's a good old hen But she ain't laid a egg since I don't know when Old hen cackle, cackling a lot Next time she cackle, gonna cackle in the pot Who broke the lock? I don't know Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Well, I'll find out before I go Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Now, there was an old rooster 'bout forty years old He'd done lots of things that'd never been told His toes curled up, he could not scratch But the young hens say his eggs still hatch Who broke the lock? I don't know Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Well, I'll find out before I go Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Now, the old rooster he said to the hen "You know I love you, so let me in" The hen said, "No! Just go away" I'm sitting with my egg that I did lay Who broke the lock? I don't know Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Well, I'll find out before I go Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Said the big red rooster to the little red hen "You ain't laid an egg in the Lord knows when" Said the little red hen to the big red rooster "You ain't been around quite as often as you used to" Who broke the lock? I don't know Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Well, I'll find out before I go Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Then the old fox said to the hen "Open up the door or I'll break it in" The hen said, "No!" and began to squawk Ordered the rooster to secure the lock Who broke the lock? I don't know Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Well, I'll find out before I go Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Down by the farmer's barnyard gate Blowed my horn, both soon and late Farmer's dog couldn't bark nor bite But the son of a gun, he could read and write Who broke the lock? I don't know Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Well, I'll find out before I go Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Now, Deacon Johnson and Missus Jones Used to fool around when Jones weren't home Come home one morning 'bout a quarter to four Who went out that back door Who broke the lock? I don't know Who broke the lock on the henhouse door Well, I'll find out before I go Who broke the lock on the henhouse door (Contributed by - July 2008)
