Chickens For Peace

From the album Take Me With You Buy Now

- are you a chicken if you refuse to fight?

CHICKENS FOR PEACE

Chickens for peace!                                       

We’re chickens for peace!                               

And we don’t want to fry!                              

Chickens for peace!                                       

We’re chickens for peace!                             

One little war, and we’re                                 

Chicken-pot-pie!                                          

 

Chickens for peace!

We’re chickens for peace!

And no one respects, a chicken who begs!

Chickens for peace!

We’re chickens for peace!

One little slip, and we’re hard boiled eggs!

 

Chickens for peace!

We’re chickens for peace!

But we’re not chicken chickens!

We’re taking a stand!

Chickens for peace!

We’re chickens for peace!

And our chicken spirit

Is sweeping the land!

                                                                 

The doves and the hawks are still fighting         

The swans and the ducks are all wet!               

But us chickens have all been uniting!                  

And what chickens want, chickens get!!               

 

We’re chickens for peace!

We’re chickens for peace!

And we will win!  We’re not turkeys!  (Or geese!)

We’re chickens for peace!

We’re chickens for peace!

Hold up your beaks and join in!                         

Cause those bombs make hot water                 

That will make chicken soup from the grease         

Of us chickens for                                              

Peace!
