The Chicken Song

The Chicken Song by Spitting Image was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, May 17, 1986 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Spitting Image was a British TV show that ran from 1984-1996. The program featured latex puppets, many of which were caricatures of famous people who they made fun of. The cast of the show performed this song as the puppets, and it became a recurring bit. The lyrics are about how annoying the song is. Apparently, the goal was to create an earworm that would burrow into the brains of listeners despite the inane lyrics warning them that the song would stick in their heads. The song is a parody of catchy Pop songs that do the same thing.
