I had an old hen she had a wooden leg
Best old hen that never laid an egg
Laid more eggs than any hen around the barn
Another dirink of whiskey wouldn’t do me any harm

CHORUS:
Cluck old hen cluck and sing
Ain’t seen an egg since way last Spring
Cluck old hen cluck and squall,
Ain’t laid an egg since way last fall

My old hen’s a good old hen
She lays eggs for the railroad men
Sometimes one sometimes two
Sometimes enough for the whole damn crew

CHORUS

Cluck old hen, cluck in the lot
Next time you cackle you’ll cackle in the pot
