Sat in the music room at my friend Tony's house he started singing a really silly rhyme, that quickly developed into a song. I've always liked the structure of 'If I was a rich man' so changed it to 'if I was a chicken'. It's one of those songs you have to write with another person just to check the radar settings.
I've always looked at spoof songs with envy in a way because of the obvious reality created. That's really what we did with the chicken song. "It exists", would be my own official statement. Whether people ever find it is really just based on time.
A quick glimpse into life at the time!
