The Ballad of Joan Henny
A Blatant Rip-off By Rapaire
When Joan Henny was a little chickie,
Peckin' at her mama's corn,
Said: "I'm gonna lay eggs till my duct fills up
An' it's gonna be the death of me,
Lawd, Lawd. Gonna be the death of me.
Farmer says to Joan Henny,
Gonna bring me a steam layer 'round,
Gonna take dat steam layer out on de job,
Gonna whop them eggs on down, Lawd, Lawd,
Gonna whop them eggs on down.
Joan Henny tol' that farmer,
Lightnin' was in her eye;
Farmer, bet yo' las' red cent on me,
Fo' I'll beat it through the bottom or I'll die, Lawd, Lawd,
I'll beat it through the bottom or I'll die."
Joan Henny started out on de right nest,
De steam layer started on de lef'---
"Before I 'd let dis steam layer beat me down,
I'd lay my fool self to death,
Lawd, Lawd, I'd lay fool self to death."
Joan Henny said to her rooster,
"Rooster, why don' you crow?
I'm throwin' twelve poun's from my hips on down,
Jes' watch that oviduct ring,
Lawd, Lawd, Jes' watch that oviduct ring."
Oh, de farmer said to Joan Henny,
"I b'lieve this hen house sinkin' in,
Joan Henny said to her farmer, oh my!
"Ain' nothin' but my ducts suckin' win',
Lawd, Lawd, ain' nothln' but my ducts suckin' win."
Joan Henny tol' her rooster,
Rooster, you better pray,
For if I miss with dis sixty-pound egg,
Tomorrow'll gonna be yo' fryin' day,
Lawd, Lawd, tomorrow'll gonna be yo' fryin' day."
Joan Hennry tol' her farmer,
"Looka yonder what l see ---
Yo' layer's done broke an' it's hole's done choked,
An' you cain' lay eggs like me,
Lawd, Lawd, an' you cain' lay eggs like me."
De man dat invented de steam layer,
Thought he was mighty fine.
Joan Henny laid eggs fifteen times,
An' de steam layer only laid nine,
Lawd, Lawd, an' de steam layer only laid nine.
Joan Henny was layin' her a mountain,
An' her oviducts was strikin' fire,
She drove so hard she broke her pore heart,
An' she laid down her body an' she died,
Lawd, Lawd, she laid down her body an' she died.
Joan Henny had a pretty lil rooster,
An' he was dressed in red feathers and blue,
An' de las' words that she said to him:
"Coxcomb, I've been true to you,
Lawd, Lawd, Coxcomb I've been true to you."
Dey took Joan Henny to de fry pan,
An' dey fried her in de grease,
An' every patron at de KFC,
Says, "Dere fries a egg-layin' hen,
Lawd, Lawd, dere fries a egg-layin' hen."
