know your chicken lyrics – cibo matto

sixteen years ago, one day,
i was walking down the street
i was cruising in brooklyn
you know what i mean?
something was cooking,
but wasn’t yet a chicken.

there was a man,
selling chicks in a box.
he said, “two for one, but three for two.”
i said, “that’s not bad,
here’s money for you.”
one was magenta,
the other was blue.

i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken

one day, the blue one went away.
the other grew up f*ckin’ well.
she was noisy every night.
i had always chicken-bite.

then i met a lover
one night, she made me dinner.
licking finger, i wondered
where she got the chicken.
then i met a lover.
one night, she made me dinner.
licking finger, i wondered
where she got the chicken.

i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken

spare the rod and spoil the chick
before you go and sh*t a brick.
spare the rod and spoil the chick
before you go and sh*t a brick
spare the rod and spoil the chick
before you go and sh*t a brick
spare the rod and spoil the chick
before you go and sh*t a brick

i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken

she went to college to study anatomy
i followed her father’s butchery
we got two babies. is it cool?
one was magenta, the other was blue.

i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
i know my chicken
you got to know your chicken
