The Clocking Hen

★ The Clocking Hen Lyrics:

“Will you take a walk with me,
My little wife, today?
There’s barley in the barley-field,
And hay-seed in the hay.”

“Thank you,” said the clocking hen;
“I’ve something else to do:
I’m busy sitting on my eggs,
I cannot walk with you.”

“Clock, clock, clock, clock!”
Said the clocking hen :
“My little chicks will soon be hatched,
I’ll think about it then.”

The clocking hen sat on her nest–
She made it in the hay;
And warm and snug beneath her breast
A dozen white eggs lay.

Crack, crack, went all the eggs,
Out dropped the chickens small.
“Clock!” said the clocking hen,
“Now I have you all.”

“Come along, my little chicks,
I’ll take a walk with you.”
“Hallo!” said the barn-door cock,
