O/K I am out there singing again! However I don't like to sing a word that I do not know the meaning of & likewise a phrase.
Anyone one any idea about the line:-
"Hens and chickens are flying over" in Shiny O?

"The hen and the chickens" are probably stormy petrels - birds which are similar to the albatross but light brown in colour. Sailors associated them with high winds and called them "Mother Carey's chickens".

from Lyr Req: Shiny-O or Shiney-O
