Eligible, not too stupid
Intelligible, and cute as Cupid
Knowledgeable, but not always right
Salvageable, and free for the night

Well my heart's runnin' round
Like a chicken with its head cut off
All around the barn yard
Fallin' in and out of love
Poor thing's blind as a bat
Gettin' up, fallin' down, gettin' up
Who'd fall in love
With a chicken with its head cut off?

Woah Nelly

My wife doesn't understand me
Many dozens, hope to land me
I'm for free love
And I'm in free fall
This could be love
Or nothin' at all

But my hearts runnin' round
Like a chicken with its head cut off
All around the barn yard
Fallin' in and out of love
Poor thing's blind as a bat
Gettin' up, fallin' down, gettin' up
Who'd fall in love
With a chicken with its head cut off?

We don't have to be stars exploding in the night
Or electric eels under the covers
We don't have to be
Anything quite so unreal
Let's just be lovers, 'cause

Well, my heart's runnin' round
Like a chicken with it's head cut off
All around the barn yard
Fallin' in and out of love
Poor thing's blind as a bat
Gettin' up, fallin' down, gettin' up
Who'd fall in love
With a chicken with its head cut off?

It ain't pretty
