"Chicken Surprise"
i've done more than she could tolerate
i've been bad stayin' out too late
this time she's really mad
lord knows I may be had
one false move from me
and she may be irate
stayin' home now would be more than wise
no goin' out for a beer, burger or fries
she's cookin' somethin' just for me
it's her own recipe,
somethin' she calls "Chicken Surprise"
so tonight i'm gettin' "Chicken Surprise"
looks like she done caught on to my lies
it's all feelin' kinda phony
'cause the kids are gettin' macaroni,
but for me she's fixin' "Chicken Surprise"
i think she done had all she could take
tell me why did she cook herself a steak?
if I eat her casserole
i might need poison control
but I can't call if i am not awake
so tonight i'm gettin' "Chicken Surprise"
looks like she done caught on to my lies
it's all feelin' kinda phony
'cause the kids are gettin' macaroni,
but for me she's fixin' "Chicken Surprise"
but wait now just hold on a minute
there's somethin' lookin' back at me in it
this is no time to be rude
but it looks just like cat food
this thing she's fixin' "Chicken Surprise"
tonight i'm gettin' "Chicken Surprise"
i'm-a havin' me some "Chicken Surprise'
Mmm - mmm - that's pretty good honey....

"Chicken Surprise"
My wife and I were out to eat one night in one of them fancy restaurants. Bein' that I ain't had any hits, we were immediately sent to the bar.
While we waited, I overheard a man say that he had to get home! He said his wife had made him "Chicken Surprise".
Now I got to thinkin' that this guy had better not be in too much trouble, for say, hangin' out at this bar too late, or too often, without his wife, 'cause "Chicken Surprise" could be just about anything!
If there was a can of dog food dumped out on a plate,
I imagine some folks might eat it if some other folks told 'em it was "Chicken Surprise"! I wrote this song in honor of that man who might have gone home and ate God knows what! I just hope he wasn't in trouble!
