Lyrics

Lucifer in Frognal
Listening to The Higsons
One night in November
And I thought I heard them singing
Said "I gotta let this hen out
And give this hen some eyeballs
Running out of living"

Won't you see for me
Won't you see to me

Listening to The Higsons
One night in November
And I thought I heard them singing
Sing "I gotta let this hen out"
The Higsons come from Norwich
But I prefer East Grinstead
I'm running out of living

Won't you see to me
Won't you see for me

Listening to The Higsons

Gotta let
Gotta let this hen out


<Alternates>
And they eat a lot of porridge   15a
