Ain’t Nobody Here But This Chicken! Really. It’s just chicken.

Ain’t Nobody Here But Us Chickens is a fun song that was written back in 1946, way before the musical debuted in the West End in 1990! Originally recorded by some guy called Louis Jordon, the song hit it’s pinnacle when it was performed by Gonzo and friends on The Muppet Show.
This toe-tapping number is all about a farmer who goes to check on his chickens, and from inside the hen house gets the reply “There ain’t nobody here but us chickens… there ain’t nobody here at all… so calm yourself and stop that fuss… there ain’t nobody here but us” from a voice that sounds rather like a fox pretending to be a chicken.
But what happened to all the chickens? I think they might have just ended up on my plate.
*Actually it’s not really a recipe.
