Domino Fats – The Rooster Song lyrics

There was an old lady from Houston
She had two hens and a rooster
Her rooster died, the old lady cried
My hens don't lay like they used to!

Ain't that a shame!
Ain't that a shame!
Ain't that a shame
She lost a helping hand

Her next door neighbor O'Cappy
He seems to be very happy
He can play in his corn, they will grow long

'Cause the old rooster is gone

Ain't that a shame
Ain't that a shame
Ain't that a shame
She lost a helping hand

I know a lady named Sue
Her rooster died too
She didn't sigh, she didn't cry
She made her a pot of stew

Ain't that a shame
Ain't that a shame
Ain't that a shame
She lost a helping hand
