In the year of the chicken our hearts shall burst forth
On the jets of their pure flaming bravery
They’ll soar through the skies like that noblest of fowl
Splashing blood in their wake over egret and owl
To unite in explosions of ventricles and valves
In the year of the chicken

In the year of the chicken our minds shall be blown
Roused from slumber submission and slavery
The brains of the people shall gnaw through their heads
And arise with the legions of recently dead
To rejoice as through tunneling lasers we are led
In the year of the chicken
