On Your Way Up Again (the Fowl Song)

My papa done told me: don't put all your eggs in one basket
Because you might be countin' your chickens before they hatch
Which brings us to the question: "Why did the chicken cross the road?"
If I knew that, I know why a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
Now we all wanna be free like an eagle
But we also know what it's like when someone flies the coop
And I think that's a real birdseye view of the situation

Once around the corner, once around the bend
When you're on your way up again
Go and tell the grocer, and go and tell your friend
When you're on your way up again

You see the people on the way up, see people on the way down
When you hit rock bottom, only way you can go is up
Now we all know it's real lonely at the top
So don't bite the hand that feeds ya, you just might get burned
Patience is a virtue, so you best wait your turn

Once around the corner, once around the bend
When you're on your way up again
Go and tell the grocer, and go and tell your friend
When you're on your way up again

Do unto others as you want done unto you
One isn't as much as the other, you know that ain't true
Don't get your foot in the door, follow your own way
Don't let the success fool you, you won't go astray
When the shoe is on the other foot and that is how it stands
One of these days I'm takin' the law in my own damn hands

Once around the corner, once around the bend
When you're on your way up again
Go and tell the grocer, and go and tell your friend
When you're on your way up again
