I don't care what they say
I'm gonna keep it anyway
I won't let them stretch their necks
To see my little black egg with the little white specks

Chorus:

I found it in a tree
Just the other day
And now it's mine, all mine
They can't take it away

Verse 2:

Here comes Mary, here comes Lee
I've got what they want to see
I won't let them stretch their necks
To see my little black egg with the little white specks

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

Oh, goldurn, what can I do?
The little black egg's gonna tell on you
I won't let them stretch their necks
To see my little black egg with the little white specks

The little black egg (with the little white specks)
To see my little black egg
To see my little black egg... [repeat to fade]

    General CommentThis song is simply nothing but fun.
    I can see why it was an out-take, as It doesn't seem to fit on any album of the time, but it's still a fun song.
