Subject: Lyr Add: CHICKEN IN THE FRIDGE (Jeff Deitchman)
Date: 24 Aug 97 - 01:26 PM

Here it is (finally)! This song was written by Jeff Deitchman, who mailed me the lyrics just 'cause Bill D asked him to. Mr. Bill is clearly a man of influence.

Unfortunately, Jeff doesn't have any tapes or CDs of this song. Magpie performs it occasionally.

Chicken in the Fridge

Chicken in the fridge, isn't she a darlin'
When you're just about starvin' in the middle of the night
You go trippin' down te stairs and you're gropin' just to find it
And you open up the fridge and you're blinded by the light

Hang on tight, you'll be squintin' for a minute
But if you bear and grin it you'll be sittin' pretty good
When your eyes get adjusted to the glow and the lustre
From the luminous foil all about that bird

Chicken in the fridge, this is what she sounds like
Whatever something sounds like, that's the way she is
Baby want a breast, papa want a thighbone
Little Sis a-pickin' at the chicken in the fridge

When I was seventeen I got me pretty lonely
For a one and only, hell, you know how it is
Well she laughed at my money but she called me "honey"
When I whispered to her softly, "I got chicken in the fridge."


I'm the kind of fella I don't like to go to meetin'
I'd rather be eatin' my chicken so fine
And they don't even give you butter when they serve the Lord's Supper
Just a soggy soda cracker and a half a sip of wine


Come Reckonin' Day, I don't care what they say
I'm gonna stand before my Hostess at the tollin' of the bell
I'll say, "Hang on, Hannah, you can hold your manna;
You ain't got chicken? I'll try 'em down in hell."

There's always "Ghost Chickens in the Sky" and "Them Chicken Cordon Blues."

Great song, reminds me of a Church of Ireland minister, who was left a parot by a late Catholic neighbor and friend when he died. Well, this parot not only had a Catholic vocabulary but was quite loud. So here we are with poor rev. James attempting to write his homily while said parrot is screaming F**KIN B*LLS ye B*sT*RD! GIT T'F**K OUTATHA YE BOLLOCKING BOLLOCKS! ... etc.. well, the good Reverend gave the bird a good talking too and went back to work, only to have the bird start up louder. This time he removes the foul mouthed fowl from its cage and gives it a good shaking only to be called things one seldom calls a church of Ireland minister. So, loosing the perverbial "it", the Reverand throws the bird into the freezer and sets back to writing. From within the Freezer he hears muffled cursing, then a shreek, then a long silence. Lamenting his temper, the reverand opens the door and removes the shivering bird.
When the bird is a bit revoverd he looks up at the reverand, and says, "Eh hemm... I say, Reverand, I am frightfully sorry, and will in future moderate my vocabulary, and if I might...ehmmm, well... ahhh.... just WHAT did the chicken do?"
Cheersm'dears, Larry
