Chickery Chick    Sammy Kaye (#1 in 1945), Gene Krupa (#10 in 1945)

Once there lived a chicken who would say "chick-chick"
"Chick-chick" all day
Soon that chick got sick and tired of just "chick-chick"
So one morning he started to say:

    "Chickery chick, cha-la, cha-la
    Check-a-la romey in a bananika
    Bollika, wollika, can't you see
    Chickery chick is me?"

Every time you're sick an tired of just the same old thing
Sayin' just the same old words all day
Be just like the chicken who found something new to sing
Open up your mouth and start to say

- words by Sylvia Dee, music by Sidney Lippman
