Barnyard Boogie

Sometimes we just need to be silly and have fun.  In this beloved barnyard song we meet a singing, swinging rooster who can't contain himself and has to share with the world his own, unique way of welcoming the sun each morning.

Themes:  Barnyard, enthusiasm, courage

 

Barnyard Boogie

I know a rooster down on the farm
Everyday at dawn he sounds the alarm
He doesn't do it like the other roosters do
He sings "Cock-a-doodle-oodle-oodie-oodie-oodie-oo"

Chorus
He's a singin', swingin' rooster
He loves to improvise
He's the kind of clucker who was born to harmonize
And everyday at dawn as the sun begins to rise
You can hear him do the barnyard boogie

Now all over the country everybody's heard
About the barnyard boogie and the one they call "the bird"
Bantams and leghorns, they can't resist the beat
Bobbin' up and down while they're dancin' with their feet

Chorus

So if you're up at dawn and you want a little treat
Come over to the barn where the air is fresh and sweet
Cars'll be lined up and down the lane
But once you've heard him crow
You'll understand just why they're sayin'

Chorus
