I am the little red rooster, too lazy to crow for day
Keep everything in the farmyard upset in every way

The dogs begin to barking, hounds begin to howl
Watch out, strange cat people, little red rooster's on the prowl

If you see my little red rooster, please drive him home
Ain't had no peace in the farmyard since my little red rooster's been gone
