Said the first little chick,

With a queer little squirm,

"I wish I could find

A fat little worm."

Said the next little chick,

With an odd little shrug,

"I wish I could find

A fat little bug."

Said the third little chick,

With a shrill little squeal,

"I wish I could find

Some nice yellow meal."

Said the fourth little chick,

With a small sigh of grief,

"I wish I could find

A little green leaf."

"See here," called the hen

From the near garden patch,

"If you want any breakfast

Just come here and scratch!"
