Some worry that the world will end tomorrow,
Some worry about the new millennium,
About crashes in the market,
How computers might spark it,
But we're all in this right up until the end!

But there's a birdie lying
underneath my window,
Because he couldn't see the window pane,
He was flying along real happy,
When he took the great big nappy,
And suddenly his arse shot through his brain!

A man who didn't want to be happy,
He griped and swore and lived in misery,
He decided to change his ways,
On that day of all those days,
When he was fried by lightning
suddenly on the street!

There's a chicken that was
hatched somewhere this morning,
Won't even get to know its mother hen,
All it knows is other chickens,
They're happy to be livin',
But they're all fried chicken in the end!

Now there's a driver of
a car out on the highway,
Was speeding and didn't even think,
Of a skunk crossing the road,
That got squashed for being too slow,
But the driver's kicking up the bigger stink!

We all know that it's got to happen,
You're lucky if you're happy until the end,
But if you're griping or just plain miserable,
Your frown is just too visible,
Think about that birdie now and then!

Yes, if you're griping or just plain miserable,
Your frown is just too visible,
Think about that birdie,
and the skunk that didn't hurry,
'Cause we're all just like
that chicken in the end!
I mean it, Mama,
We're all just like that chicken in the end!
The big tump!
