Just us chickens, under a great big Cheshire sky,
just us chickens, no need to wonder why.
When it's a shinning golden day, the butcher's hands are far away,
It's just us chickens, just us chickens you and I.

Just us chickens, our eggs could be sons or daughters, all together,
at the bottom of the pecking order.
When the day's perfectly sussed, and your bathing in the dust,
it's just,
... us chickens, just us chickens you and I.

Additional vocals by guest chickens; Smudge, Helium, Decaff and Buckbeak, recorded by their human, poet Helen Kay.
