DT Lyrics:





Subject: Chicken Soup
From: Tinker
Date: 02 Oct 00 - 10:51 PM

It's cold season and I can't remember the words to this song which came home from Hebrew Nursery School with my boys... Any help?
CHICKEN SOUP

You eat when you're hungry
You eat it when you're cold
???????
CHORUS
Everybody loves chicken, chicken
Everybody loves chicken soup 2x

I know there were several verses and it's not in the DT or forum.
But after reading the family songs thread it's echoing with intermittent words in my mind. HELP!
Tinker

Maurice Sendak made a kids' rhyme and minibook that went through the months of the year, with the refrain, "Happy once, happy twice, happy chicken soup with rice," with the first word changing with the months. Might this be it? It is in a little set "The Nutshell Library" with three other minibooks; I saw it again recently but it was first out in I believe the 70s, maybe 60s, and like some other early Sendak could be set to music readily.

Subject: Lyr Add: CHICKEN SOUP (Fran Avni)

My transcription from Spotify:


CHICKEN SOUP
As sung by Fran Avni on "The Seventh Day: Very Special Songs for Shabbat" (2006)

1. It'll feed ya when you're hungry, warm ya when you're cold.
You're never too young for it, never too old.
When you're feeling sick, it's much better than a pill.
Come on in and get your fill.

CHORUS: 'Cause ev'rybody loves chicken, chicken,
Ev'rybody loves chicken soup.
Everybody loves chicken, chicken,
Ev'rybody loves chicken soup.

2. You can have it with noodles—or rice,
Carroty noodles(?) of your fav'rite spice.
When you're down it's a pick-me-up.
Come on in; have a little cup.

3. You can serve it with a ladle, pour it from a jar.
A bowl or a cup will do no matter where you are.
It's always delicious served pipin' hot,
And very nutritious drank(?) straight from the pot.
