Egg Song

 
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Egg Adams:

It's a masterpiece, I say!



They will cheer every word, every letter

Jefferson:

I wish I felt that way

Franklin:

I believe I can put it better

Now then attend, as friend to friend

On our Declaration Committee

For us I see immortality

All:

In Philadelphia City

Franklin:

A farmer, a lawyer, and a sage

A bit gouty in the leg

You know it's quite bizarre

To think that here we are

Playing midwives to an egg

All:

We're waiting for the chirp, chirp, chirp

Of an eaglet being born

We're waiting for the chirp, chirp, chirp

On this humid Monday morning in this

Congressional incubator

Franklin:

God knows the temperature's hot enough

To hatch a stone, let alone an egg

All:

We're waiting for the scratch, scratch, scratch

Of that tiny little fellow

Waiting for the egg to hatch

On this humid Monday morning in this

Congressional incubator

Adams:

God knows the temperature's hot enough

To hatch a stone

Jefferson:

But will it hatch an egg?

Adams:

The eagle's going to crack the shell

Of the egg that England laid

All:

Yes, so we can tell, tell, tell

On this humid Monday morning in this

Congressional incubator

Franklin:

And as just as Tom here has written

Though the egg may belong to Great Britain,

The eagle inside belongs to us!

All:

And as just as Tom here has written

We say to hell with Great Britain!

The eagle inside belongs to us!
