Chickens are quirky creatures that make for good fodder for a song. They are also a popular topic of conversation, so it’s not surprising that some songs have chickens in them.
The most famous of these songs is Train’s 2001 hit “Drops of Jupiter.” But what did that really mean? Frontman Pat Monahan recently stopped by BuzzFeed New York to explain.
The aforementioned song is about a fairytale character who has a mouth that smells just like chicken, and her narrator thinks it’s the best thing ever.
This song features a slew of ridiculous dance moves and some pretty hilarious lyrics, including “You knees start wiggling all over the place,” and “Tears will be shed.” It’s also the most cheesy of the chicken-related songs we’ve found.
This odd-looking song is a fun little number that includes some pretty simple and repetitive lyrics about a mother chicken. But if you look closer, it’s actually a clever ode to the humble hen.
This oddly shaped country song is about a chicken that has one leg, so it’s a nice touch to have the title mention this little fact.
This one’s a bit of a hoot, but it does have a few good quotables. It’s a cute little song about an odd ol’ town that is full of chickens, and its most notable quote is about the train that takes your chickens away.
