I don't know just what to do He's got a grudge against Frank Perdue He's clucking a lot, but he's not saying anything I plucked him once-why pluck him again?-CHORUS. Colonel Sanders wants to cook his goose but Psycho Chicken's still on the loose ("Hmm, a little chickie-" BWAAK!! "OHH!!") They caught him down in Ohio They cut off his head and they put him in the oven They put him in a box right next to a roll Put some coleslaw around his legs and someone took him home Ate him for lunch and he tasted real fine ("BURP!") but the guy who ate him, he just lost.
