My Uncle Used to Love Me But She Died

My uncle used to love me but she died
A chicken ain't chicken 'til it's lickin' good fried
Keep on the sunny side,
My uncle used to love me but she died
 
Who'll give me quarter,
Thirty cents for a ring of keys
Three, sixty five for a dollar bill of groceries
I'll have me a car of my own someday,
But till then I need me a ride
 
My uncle used to love me but she died
My uncle used to love me but she died
A chicken ain't chicken 'til it's lickin' good fried
Keep on the sunny side,
My uncle used to love me but she died
 
Hamburger, cup of coffee, lettuce and tomato
Two times a dime to see a man kiss the alligator
One more time around free on the ferris wheel ride
 
My uncle used to love me but she died
My uncle used to love me but she died
A chicken ain't chicken 'til it's lickin' good fried
Keep on the sunny side,
My uncle used to love me but she died
 
Apples are for eatin' and snakes are for hissin'
I heard about a huggin' and I heard about a kissin'
I read about it free in a fifty cent illustrated guide
 
My uncle used to love me but she died
My uncle used to love me but she died
A chicken ain't chicken 'til it's lickin' good fried
Keep on the sunny side,
My uncle used to love me but she died
 
Well my uncle used to love me but she died
A chicken ain't chicken 'til it's lickin' good fried
Keep on the sunny side,
My uncle used to love me but she died
 
My uncle used to love me but she died
My uncle used to love me but she died...

Roger Miller was famous for making nonsense songs, like an uncle being 'she'.
Let me shed some light on it though:
1. Licking good fried means that the only way to eat chicken is with your hands and you lick your fingers from the flavorful juices/ grease of the chicken, keep it on the sunny side means golden brown (not too dark) from overcooking.
2. He's trying to sell keys (worthless) to get some change.
3. Numerically $3.65 for a $1.00 worth of groceries, he was overcharged.
4. Two times a dime (20 cents) to see an alligator side-show act, alligator wrestling, too. Common in Gulf Coast states of the USA. They are still around but the price is higher.
5. The sound snakes make is said to be a 'hiss'.
6. Standing around looking at 'girlie books' in gas stations and quick service stores was once common. That avoided the embarrassment of the purchase.
7. It is prevailing slang to hear cent instead of cents for change that is plural even though it is not correct grammatically.
8. 'til = until
