A chicken farmer went out on one dark and dusty day
And by the coop he rested as he went along his way
When all at once a rotten egg hit him in the eye
It was the sight he dreaded: Ghost Chickens in the SkyTM

This farmer had these chickens since he was twenty-four
Working for the Colonel (pronounced "Kernel," eh?)(TM) for thirty years or more
Raising all those chickens up to send them off to fry
And now they want revenge: Ghost Chickens in the Sky

Their beaks were black and shiny, their eyes were blazing red
They had no meat or feathers - oh! These chickens all were dead!
They raised that farmer up and he died by the claw
They cooked him extra crispy, and served him with cole slaw

So let this song remind you if you want eternal peace:
Don't raise up harmless poultry for to cook 'em up in grease
Remember: don't raise animals that you will some day kill
For a chicken may come haunt you, but TofuTM never will.


Traditional music, based on Ghost Riders in the Sky
Words traditional Boy Scout campfire song
