I heard a little chicken chirp
Language: English 
I heard a little chicken chirp:
My name is Thomas, Thomas Earp,
and I can neither paint nor write,
I can only put other people right.

All people that can write or pain
do tremble under my complain.
For I am a chicken, and I can chirp,
and my name is Thomas, Thomas Earp.
