Rooster

Written by: Brandlynn Young

Rooster lived up his days on earth
You could shoot the thing for what it’s worth

Four o’clock in the morning and the things up crowing
I was sound asleep, I think he’s knowing

I wipe the sleepy from my eyes
Tell him to shut up and then realize

That rooster lives to annoy me
But I just can’t let the rooster be

“Shut up” I say, but now I’m awake,
“Be quiet” I say, “For goodness sake!”

Right outside my window, the thing stands crowing
He’s getting on my nerves, I think he’s knowing

Never will a rooster outsmart me
Though loud may the crowing be

Tonight before I sleep, I’ll put my earplugs in
Then the rooster will lose, and I will win!
