"Chicken Wolf" as written by John Kay and Michael Monarch....
You comin' here
Tellin' me how proud you are
Some clown just handed you
A shiny little silver star
You say, over there, the men are brave
While the chickens stay away
Cause they're all too much afraid
To fight for somethin' they should believe in
I'm sorry friend, you've got it backwards

They won't follow when your whistle blows
Won't come runnin' when your rooster crows
Don't eat the same old crow until their minds have gone
They don't fear the squawk of the little silly chicken hawk
Uh, uh huh, help us clean our own backyard
Before you go to preach abroad
Believe me it won't be easy

As you well know, not every bird can roam the sky
I see your wings, man, but can you fly?
All I see when I look down, something jumpin' on the ground scratchin' dirt
Cluckin' in the barnyard, tell me, could that be you?
In that case, lay another egg
Try to save yourself from the bar-be-cue

    My InterpretationDear Pilgrims,

    This song is about a Vietnam Army Veteran Recruiting at a college campus to sell students on the notion of joining the Army during the Vietnam War. The students point out the flaws in the Recruiter's logic starting with his zeal that was bought by shiny metals and promotions and military brainwashing. The recruiter believes the men over there are brave because they are fighting for something they believe in when the exact opposite is true i.e. it is braver to not to fight because one has to go against public opinion ... "I see your wings man ... but can you fly" sums up the truth i.e. having a Colonel's rank (i.e. an eagle with its wings open) A shiny bird logo however, doesn't reveal the truth of a man's righteousness or character. Amen.
