Thread Name: Lyr Req: Cock a doodle doo
Subject: Lyr Add: ONCE I HAD A HEN
You mean - Once I Had an Old Hen - I sing this occasionally.
I got it from an old Bob Davenport recording nearly 40 years ago!!
Francis Shergold of Bampton Morris used to sing a version.

Tim Radford

Once I had an old hen
This hen did very well please me
And every time I feed my hen
I feed her all under the tree, tree

Hen went chicky shack
Cock went doodle-do
Hereƕs luck to all the hens
That make me cock go doodle do.

Duck --- Quack, Quack
Cat --- Meaow, Meaow
Dog --- Bow Wow
Cow --- Moo, Moo
Horse ---Neigh, Neigh
Wife --- Nag, Nag
