Hen House

I went down to the hen house, the hen house
To see what I could happen to find
There’s my old chicken, my chicken
Good old Martha, that hen of mine


Her nest was empty, it’s empty
There were no eggs to be found
So I had to sit and wait
Wait for her to lay an egg down


I sang to her this song
And she gave one brown egg to me
Just goes to show you, to show you
Nothing in this word is free


I took the egg to the kitchen 
And cracked it in a hot frying pan
This song is now over, its over
So don't ask for any bacon
