I Know a Chicken

This developed out of an improvisation with the kids. They were playing with egg-shaped "shakers" and I needed a song to go along with it. What could be more fun than shouting out a little blues?

CD Version:


Oh, I know a chicken (I know a chicken)

And she laid an egg (and she laid an egg)

Yeah, I know a chicken (I know a chicken)

And she laid an egg (and she laid an egg)

Oh my goodness (oh my goodness)

It’s a shaky egg! (It’s a shaky egg!)

 

Now shake them fast! Shake ‘em fast!


Shake them fast! Shake ‘em fast!


Shake your eggs! Shake ‘em fast, shake it fast!

 

Oh, I know a chicken (I know a chicken)

And she laid an egg (and she laid an egg)

Yeah, I know a chicken (I know a chicken)

And she laid an egg (and she laid an egg)

Oh my goodness (oh my goodness)

It’s a shaky egg! (It’s a shaky egg!)

 

Now shake them slow, you know how it goes

Shake them slow, because you know how it goes

And shake them fast! Oh, shake those eggs!

Shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it!

 

Oh, I know a chicken (I know a chicken)

And she laid an egg (and she laid an egg)

Yeah, I know a chicken (I know a chicken)

And she laid an egg (and she laid an egg)

Oh my goodness (oh my goodness)

It’s a shaky egg! (It’s a shaky egg!)

 

Now shake them in a circle, round and round

Don’t you let them touch the ground


When you shake ‘em round and round


Now shake them up and down

Shake ‘em up and down, you got to

Shake it up and down

 

Oh, I know a chicken (I know a chicken)

And she laid an egg (and she laid an egg)

Yeah, I know a chicken (I know a chicken)

And she laid an egg (and she laid an egg)

Oh my goodness (oh my goodness)

It’s a shaky egg! (It’s a shaky egg!)
