The Chicken Or The Egg
Which come first, the chicken or the aig?

Which come first, the chicken or the aig?

How could somethin' so fat and burly

Come from somethin' so smooth and pearly?

Which come first, the chicken or the aig?



Which come first, the feather or the shell?

Which come first, the feather or the shell?

When you see one egg or t'other,

Do you ever think about its mother?

Which come first, the feather or the shell?



Now eggs are all so purty, lyin' on a plate,

Or sittin' here in a carton, neat and straight.

And lookin' inside a box of eggs might make you feel so great,

But do you ever wonder where they was, before they was inside that crate?



Which come first, the chicken or the aig?

Which come first, the chicken or the aig?

Now if you wanted to begin again,

Would you start with an omelette or a hen?

Which come first, the chicken or the aig?
