Cockfight

And the feathered chests swell,
when one cock looks to another,
on the manure, at the top of his voice,
the cock crows for his bride.
 
They rooster around with proud steps,
sharpened beaks, sharpened spurs,
Eye for an eye, each cock for himself,
yes, they were born to fight.
 
No cock, even when he still crows,
has ever even laid an egg,
so it really doesn't matter to me at all,
in the end, nothing remains but screams.
 
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
 
Feathers fly, claws scratch,
Peck and pull, get torn down,
puff back up, about to burst,
but it was only the plumage.
 
Because they are fighting for the honor,
for the favor of the fair ladies,
completely shredded, the winner looks
towards his female, he's one of the lame.
 
No cock, even when he still crows,
has ever even laid an egg,
so it really doesn't matter to me at all,
in the end, nothing remains but screams.
 
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
 
Cock-a-doodle-doo
Cock-a-doodle-doo
Cock-a-doodle-doo
Cock-a-doodle-doo
 
The cock
Cock-a-doodle-doo
The cock
Cock-a-doodle-doo
The cock
Cock-a-doodle-doo
The cock
Cock-a-doodle-doo
 
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
The cock is dead, the cock is dead,
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
he can't crow anymore, cock-a-doodle-doo
