lyrics

DON’T COUNT YOUR CHICKENS
Mike Bryden 2017

CHORUS
I’ve got 4 eggs (I’ve got 4 eggs)
I’ve got 4 eggs (I’ve got 4 eggs)
I’ve got 4 eggs (I’ve got 4 eggs)
They’re going to be 4 chicks

But one of my eggs rolled on the floor
Rolled through the kitchen, out the front door
We all ran after but it was faster
And that’s the end of that pour egg’s chapter
Farmer always said to close the front latch
And never count your chickens before they hatch
That’s ok, it’s fine with me
I’m still happy ‘cause I still have 3!

CHORUS
I’ve got 3 eggs (I’ve got 3 eggs)
I’ve got 3 eggs (I’ve got 3 eggs)
I’ve got 3 eggs (I’ve got 3 eggs)
They’re going to be 3 chicks

Then one day I was fishing at sea
An egg went overboard, oh dear me!
It floated away out of my reach
We looked everywhere, even combed the beach
Farmer always said to release what you catch
And never count your chickens before they hatch
I don’t feel blue and neither should you
I’ve got more eggs, yeah I’ve still got 2!

CHORUS
I’ve got 2 eggs (I’ve got 2 eggs)
I’ve got 2 eggs (I’ve got 2 eggs)
I’ve got 2 eggs (I’ve got 2 eggs)
They’re going to be 2 chicks

You’ll never guess what happened to egg number two
I lost it one day when I went to the zoo
There were monkeys and gorillas, snakes and alligators
And somewhere in there my egg said see ya later
Farmer always said that monkeys love to scratch
And never count your chickens before they hatch
I’m not glum cus I still have one
Me and my egg gonna have a lot of fun

CHORUS
I’ve got 1 egg (I’ve got 1 egg)
I’ve got 1 egg (I’ve got 1 egg)
I’ve got 1 egg (I’ve got 1 egg)
They’re going to be 1 chick

Now I’m keeping my egg warm in the sun
I’m taking good care of my very last one
She’s gonna grow up and be a great chicken
We’ll go bike riding and I’ll take her picnicking
Farmer always said to fix a flat you need a patch
And never count your chickens before they hatch
I had 4, then 3, then 2, then 1
Oh my gosh, my egg’s gone and now I have none!

CHORUS
I’ve got no eggs (I’ve got no eggs)
I’ve got no eggs (I’ve got no eggs)
I’ve got no eggs (I’ve got no eggs)
They’re is going to be no chicks

Well without my eggs I’m feeling kind of low
The farmer was right, she really did know
But then I woke up and what did I see
All my baby chicks were coming back to me!

CHORUS
I’ve got 4 chicks (I’ve got 4 chicks)
I’ve got 4 chicks (I’ve got 4 chicks)
I’ve got 4 chicks (I’ve got 4 chicks)
They’re going to be my friends

I’ve got 4 chicks (I’ve got 4 chicks)
I’ve got 4 chicks (I’ve got 4 chicks)
I’ve got 4 chicks (I’ve got 4 chicks)
They’re going to be my friends
