Reviews:
Facts:
  • When heard on Dr. Demento, the edits will either be a duck call, bleeps or more commonly, clucks. Some of these were done as the record played, giving some variance to many playings. (Tim P. Ryan)
  • Parody of "Psycho Killer" by Talking Heads (CapSuper)
  • Song Lyrics:
    I can't seem to face up to the facts
    I'm tense and nervous and I can't relax
    This Colonel Sanders job is gettin' me down
    A crazy chicken chasing me all over town

    CHORUS:
    Psycho Chicken--what the f**k?
    Bwak bwak bwak bwaaak bwak bwak bwak bwak bwaaak bwak
    Better run run run run run run run away

    I don't know just what to do
    He's got a grudge against Frank Perdue
    He's clucking a lot, but he's not saying anything
    I plucked him once--why pluck him again?

    CHORUS

    Colonel Sanders wants to cook his goose
    but Psycho Chicken's still on the loose
    ("Hmm, a little chickie--" BWAAK!! "OHH!!")

    They caught him down in Ohio
    They cut off his head and they put him in the oven
    They put him in a box right next to a roll
    Put some coleslaw around his legs and someone took him home
    Ate him for lunch and he tasted real fine ("BURP!")
    but the guy who ate him, he just lost his mind!

    HALF-CHORUS (with "Qu'est-ce que?")

    CHORUS (with "What the f**k?")

    ("Ooh, it's all covered in feathers!")
