Description: Egg Lady

I got the egg lady money but the egg lady got no eggs.
I got the egg lady money but the egg lady got no eggs.
So I ain’t gettin’ none over easy, no “sunny side ups” today.
I gotta wait for Friday -- that’s what the egg lady say.

I went to see her and her chickens on Tuesday, I had three dollars for a dozen more.
She say, “You better come back on Friday, and when you do you better bring me four.”
She say, “The hens are gettin’ kinda fussy and they’re refusin’ to cooperate.”
She say, “The hens have joined the chicken union, and they’re complainin’ ‘bout their layin’ rate.”

I got the egg lady money but the egg lady got no eggs.
I got the egg lady money but the egg lady got no eggs.
So I ain’t gettin’ none over easy, no “sunny side ups” today.
I gotta wait on her hens ‘til Friday -- that’s what the egg lady say.

So I got hungry for an omelet on Wednesday, you know I just couldn’t wait no more.
I decided I would satisfy my cravin’. You know I headed to the grocery store.
I bought a dozen Grade As and some cheeses, and I done cooked me up a special meal.
And when I went to see the egg lady Friday, I told her simply she could cancel the deal.

I got the egg lady money but the egg lady got no eggs.
I got the egg lady money but the egg lady got no eggs.
So the lesson of the story for chickens, who get together and refuse to lay,
There’s a billion more hens on this planet, with a billion more eggs every day.
I got the egg lady money but the egg lady got no eggs.
