The Rooster song lyrics and guitar chords with sheet music and tin whistle notes for The Fureys. Also recorded by Irish country singer ''Farmer Dan'' .

 We had some (G) chickens, no eggs would they lay
We had some (D) chickens, no eggs would they (G) lay
Oh, my wife said, “ (C) Honey, we're losing (G) money!” - oh yeah
“Because them (D) chickens no eggs will they (G) lay!
Then came a (C) rooster into our (G) yard
and he caught them (D) chickens right off of their (G) guard
They're laying (C) eggs now like they never (G) used to
Since that (D) rooster came into our (G) yard

We had a milk cow, no milk would she give
We had a milk cow, no milk would she give
oh, my wife said: “Honey, we're losing money!” - oh yeah
“Because that milk cow no milk will she give.”
Then came a rooster into our yard
and he caught that milk cow right off of her guard
she’s giving  yoghurt  like she never used to
Since that rooster came into our yard

We had an elephant, no tusk would it grow
We had an elephant, no tusk would it grow
the wife said: “Honey, we're losing money,” - oh yeah
“Because that elephant no tusk will it grow.”
Then came a rooster into our yard
and caught that elephant right off  of  its guard
He’s laying eggs now -  out of solid ivory
Since that rooster came into our yard

We had a  rooster, he was awfully gay
We had a  rooster, he was funny that way
oh my wife said; -Honey,  we're losing money!” – oh yeah
“Because that rooster is funny that way.”
Then came a chicken into our yard
and she caught that rooster right off of his guard
He's laying hens now like he never used to
Since that chicken came into our yard.
