Got a little red rooster
And that rooster lazy just to crow for day
I got a little red rooster
And that rooster too lazy to crow for day

    Also gut, ich gebe zu, war soeben in der Dezemberkälte, draussen vor dem Haus, habe die verschneiten Alpen betrachtet, eine Tabakpfeife geraucht und einen Whiskey getrunken, bin also etwas euphorisch, aber... ich mag Big Mama Thornton. Es ist alles so unheimlich ehrlich.

    Not sure her chicken sounds are up to much. Would suggest you try out Slim Gaillard's very crude and very funny "chicken rhythm". His clucks are hilarious.

    ... and she led the way with Hound Dog as well. She deserves her footnote in rock history. I haven't had time to check out her "Ball and Chain" - antyhing to do with the Janis classic?
