VP_001261 Verse 1Two college boys from dear old Yale blew into New York town For they were wise that on Broad way some chickens could be found. They stroll'd around until they met two girlies just sixteen, With rougish smile and golden hair and eyes that were a dream, They grabb'd those maidens quick and both cried oh! you chick Chorus 1Ev'rybody loves a chicken Ev'rybody wants a girl that's cute and neat All the boys they love the small ones, They don't care for old or tall ones They love them thin and sweet Ev'rybody loves to love a chicken And that is why when girls pass by you'll hear the boys all cry Chick! chick! chick! chick! chick! chick! chiick! Chick! chick! chick! chick! chick! chick! chiick! Oh! what I'd do for a chicken like you Ev'rybody loves a chicken. Verse 2These college chaps have married and their lives are long, sweet dreams Because the maidens they have won are dainty chicken queens. No more they'll wander 'round the town and flirt as chicks pass by, No gay white way, they've had their day, but they are bound to cry When wifey cuddles near and whispers in his ear
