It was Saturday morning in the henhouse
All the chickens were going to town
Filling the nests with fresh laid eggs
While the roosters strutted around

The meanest rooster in the henhouse
Was one they called Big Red
He stood pretty tall for a rooster
And had a huge, red comb on his head

The other roosters were scared of Big Red
And they knew not to mess with his chicks
Big Red enjoyed picking fights with them
But they were all wise to his tricks

The farmer opened the henhouse door
And herded a big, new chicken inside
She was the strangest hen they'd ever seen
And all the roosters puffed up with pride

Big Red immediately rushed to her side
And claimed the chicken as his very own
She stuck her beak in the air and walked away
And left him standing there all alone

For months, he tried to impress her
His comb like a flaming ember
Big Red never stood a chance and then
She disappeared come late November

The old rooster lost his will to live
And his behavior turned downright quirky
For this big old braggart never realized
That he had fallen in love with a turkey
