I remember my grandmother had the sheet music to the very popular Sterling and von Tilzer song. I think most people who had a piano had a copy.
But who married Syerling's words to the "Chicken song?"

I think the best known words are:
"C" is for the little chick,
"H" is for the momma hen
"I" 'cause I love that bird
"C" for the cluck, cluck
"K" for the kackle, kackle
"E" and the little "N"
