One Hen Song (Lyrics)


Lyrics

One hen. One hen, two ducks. One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese. One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters. One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulent porpoises. One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulent porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio’s tweezers.

One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulent porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio’s tweezers, SIX THOUSAND MACIDONIANS IN FULL BATTLE ARRAY! One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulant porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio’s tweezers, SIX THOUSAND MACIDONIANS IN FULL BATTLE ARRAY, eight brass monkeys from the ancient, sacred crypts of Egypt.

One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulent porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio’s tweezers, SIX THOUSAND MACIDONIANS IN FULL BATTLE ARRAY, eight brass monkeys from the ancient, sacred crypts of Egypt, nine apathetic, sympathetic old men on roller skates with a marked propensity towards procrastination and sloth.

One hen, two ducks, three squawking geese, four limerick oysters, five corpulent porpoises, six pairs of Don Alvarsio’s tweezers, SIX THOUSAND MACIDONIANS IN FULL BATTLE ARRAY, eight brass monkeys from the ancient, sacred crypts of Egypt, nine apathetic, sympathetic old men on roller skates with a marked propensity towards procrastination and sloth, ten lyrical, spherical, diabolical denizens of the deep who haul salt around the corner of the quay in a query… ALL AT THE VERY SAME TIME.

items added one at a time. CAPs to be said very loudly!

Comments

Song leader starts with “one hen.” and lets group echo. Song Leader then adds one item to the list on each repetition. It’s a challenge to the memory to see who can master the entire list without a cheat sheet. I learned this about 30 years ago at summer camp and can still do the whole thing from memory!
