THE CHICKEN AND THE HAWK
(Jerry Leiber - Mike Stoller)
BIG JOE TURNER (Atlantic 1080, 1956)

Well, a girly chicken
Fell in love with a chicken hawk
Well, a girly chicken
Fell in love with a chicken hawk
Fell head over heels
For that hawk's sweet talks
She said, take me up hawky
Take me up in the sky
She said, take me up hawky
Take me up in the sky
I'm just a little bitty chicken
And I don't know how to fly

He said, up, up and away, we goin' fly all day
Up, up and away, we goin' fly all day
Up, up, up, up and away

He met a bald headed eagle
Flyin' up there in the blue
He met a bald headed eagle
Flyin' up there in the blue
Well, the eagle told the hawk
I'm goin' steal that chicken from you
Well, the hawk start flyin'
Like a V8 single jet, brrrrr
Well, the hawk start flyin'
Like a V8 single jet, mmmmmm
He said, cool down chicken
The eagle ain't got us yet

He said, up, up and away, we goin' fly all day
Up, up and away, we goin' fly all day
Up, up, up, up and away

Well, you asked him for the sun
Did you ask him for the moon?
Well, you asked him for the sun
Did you ask him for the moon?
He said, cool down baby
We're goin' to be there soon

He said, up, up and away, we goin' fly all day
Up, up and away, we goin' fly all day
Up, up, up, up and away
