darla, they've brought your eggs into my kitchen
i know you're wishin' your bones weren't so soft
but your cage is just too small to move in,
we're fucking groovin' in the city
it's a pity that you can't be groovin' too, boo.

and i know that you weren't born for a pot pie,
that you weren't born for the cajun life
and i know that your ovulation's private
and you're ready to be fertilized.

darla, you never said you were unhappy
or you feel crappy
never said anything at all
but i know you know you're not living the good life
if i could i'd pick lock you free,
you'd live with jeff and me on fairmount st.
that'd be neat.

and i know that you weren't born for a pot pie,
that you were born for the cajun life
and i know that your ovulation's private
and you're ready to be fertilized.

    General Commentactually Why? made this song about a chicken stuck in a chicken coop her whole life just making babies for our consumption... he made it to see what other people would intreprete it as, but it is simply about a female chicken and her depressing existence, he is saying its not right for her whole life to be laying eggs for us in a coop... its actually a brilliant experiment and you are the rat...

    General CommentI kind of thought it was a metaphor for an older women who got stuck with a shitty husband who wanted it to be just the two of them, but now it's too getting too late for that, and so she feels totally trapped, is all, maybe.

    General CommentYoni said that it's literally about hens raised for eggs. He said that one night he was on the internet, looking at a website about why you should be vegan, and they were talking about how horrible the chickens are treated, and the next morning while he was taking a shower, he heard his sister and his mother making eggs in the kitchen, and he just started singing the song to himself. And two years later, it was recorded. =]

    I guess that shows you that not every song has to be a metaphor.

    General CommentHehe, love it. Rooster solo FTW!

    I don't really know what it's about, but I hope it describes the pain of a chicken. Would be interesting.

    General CommentYeah I think it's an ode to a chicken who's about to die
    simple as that...no need to read too much into it and make it some strange sexual metaphor.
    He's sad for Darla the chicken and is just letting her know that.
