Teenage Mutant Kung Fu Chickens Ray Stevens
written by C.W. Kalb, Jr.
On a [C#]chicken farm just downstream from [B]Oak Ridge Tenn[C#]essee
A nuclear reactor leaks some water [B]accide[C#]ntly
What [F#]happened next is like a horror s[C#]tory by Ralph Nader
That toxic waste leaked into a [B]brood house i[C#]ncubator
[D]Inside that chicken coop they always [C]keep the TV [D]on
Said the programs help the chicks to grow, [C]help to keep them [D]calm
As [G]4 little chickens put that heavy w[D]ater down their gullets
The kung fu show was on the air and somethin' h[C]appened to those [D]pullets
They began to [D]grow, and [G]grow, with that [C]kung fu [G]show locked in their [A]brains
That's the [G]only w[C]ay we can e[A]xplain
[A]Teenage mutant [G]kung fu c[D]hickens (buck-buck-buck)
[D]Big as a house strong [C]as the d[A]ickens (buck-buck)
[D]Anything they want is easy [C]pickins (buck-buck-buck)
For t[A]eenage mutant kung fu c[D]hickens (buck-buck-buck)[C]
One s[D]aid his name was Fricassi, the s[C]econd Cordon B[D]leu
The third was Catchetori, and the [C]fourth they just c[D]alled Stew
They [G]could've been dangerous having grown so [D]big on heavy water
But they decided they would live their lives on the s[C]ide of law and [D]order
[A]Teenage mutant k[G]ung fu [D]roosters (buck-buck)
[D]Bad guys won't have it easy [C]like they u[A]ster (buck-ack)
They [D]come with tai kuando and all the [C]fixins (buck-buck-buck)
They're t[A]eenage mutant kung fu c[G]hickens (buck-buck-buck)
[C]Yeah, we's just all down there at the barn holdin' the auction
So we wouldn't lose the farm, when all of a sudden these big pullets
With black scarves 'round their fore'ds come over that hill yonder and
Surrounded them bankers, pecked 'em on the heads, dropped 'em like green persimons.
Yeah then they went down there at the bottom 'forty, start scratchin' around like
chickens'd wan' to do, 'fore you know it they'd plowed that whole field ready for plantin'.
Yeah, they saved our farm.
