All right now listen. At this time I would like to introduce a friend of ours
A very talented guy named John Sebastian. Come on man

Alright
Man, that’s what I call a New York joint, man
You can pick your teeth with a New York joint

Well, I’m the little red rooster, too lazy to crow the day
Little red rooster, too lazy to crow the day
Keep everything in the barnyard upset in every way

Dogs begin to bark, the hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark and the hounds begin to howl
Look out strange cat people, the rooster’s on the prowl

Dogs begin to bark, the hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark, the hounds
Look out strange cat people, my rooster’s on the prowl

If you see my rooster, come on and drive him home
If you see my rooster baby, come on and drive him home
Ain’t been no peace in the barnyard since my little red rooster been gone

Well, I’m the little red rooster babe, too lazy to crow the day
Well, I’m the little red rooster, too lazy to crow the day
Keep everything in the barnyard upset in every way

    This song abounds with sexual metaphors: little red rooster is the writer's penis. Apparently, he can't get it up because he's too tired or won't get it up because he's too lazy, which upsets 'the barnyard', which is either a metaphor for a woman's vagina or just his covey of women.
