To fanner Jones's I went one lovely February,
For change of air I had left town, for I felt so forlorn;
When a lovely scene burst on my sight, for there was pretty Mary,
With the cocks and hens all around her, she was feeding them with corn.

Chuck, chuch, chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck,
Said pretty little Mary, light as a canary;
Chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck,
As she call'd her chickens all around her.

I loved her from that moment, and would have felt much annoyed,
Had I thought another sought her hand for I'm a jealous Turk;
A prettier girl you could not see more prettily employed,
As she gave a sidelong glance at me, then went on with her work.
Chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck, &c.

I raised my hat politely, said, " Good-morning, to you, Mary,"
She Just glanced at me, slightly bowed her pretty little head ;
Said I, " My dear, you've stolen my heart, I really must be wary,
I'm deeply stabb'd with cupid's dart," she look'd at me, and said :
Chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck, &c.

I would be, day after day, with her completely stricken,
I could not tear myself away, but by her side I'd stand ;
I said, " Oh! would I were a bird," of course I meant a chicken,
To be fed, altho' perhaps absurd, by Mary's lovely hand.
Chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck, &c.

Six months with Jones I tarried, and I got so fond of Mary,
Tc beg she'd wed, I had no fear, so popp'd to her one day;
She consented, we were married, and what's more extraordinary,
We've got five chicks, to whom I hear my dear wife often say :
Chuck, chuck, chuck, chuck, &c.
