Once there lived a chicken who would say "chick-chick"

"Chick-chick" all day

Soon that chick got sick and tired of just "chick-chick"

So one morning he started to say:

"Chickery chick, cha-la, cha-la

Check-a-la romey in a bananika

Bollika, wollika, can't you see

Chickery chick is me?"

Every time you're sick and tired of just the same old thing

Sayin' just the same old words all day

Be just like the chicken who found something new to sing

Open up your mouth and start to say

Oh!

"Chickery chick, cha-la, cha-la

Check-a-la romey in a bananika

Bollika, wollika, can't you see

Chickery chick is me?"
