"Don't count your chickens before they're hatched."

Story Behind the Song

Wrote this to put what seemed like the end of the world into perspective.

Lyrics

ALL MY EGGS

Words & Music By
Ted Myers

1. I PUT ALL MY EGGS IN ONE BASKET
AND THAT BASKET WAS YOU
I PUT ALL O' MY HOPES
ALL O' MY DREAMS
ALL MY HAPPINESS TOO

2. WHEN THE BOTTOM DROPPED OUT OF THAT BASKET
IT LEFT ME WITH NOTHIN' AT ALL
NOW I CAN SEE WHAT A FOOL I HAD TO BE
TO SET MYSELF UP FOR THAT FALL

CHORUS:
HEY NOW (RUN AROUND, RUN AROUND)
HEY NOW (RUN AROUND, RUN AROUND)
HEY NOW, AND TRY TO KEEP IT TOGETHER

3. I COUNTED MY CHICKENS BEFORE THEY WERE HATCHED
THEY ALL TURNED TO BE CROWS
THEY ATE ALL THE CORN
AND THEN THEY FLEW AWAY
I GUESS THAT'S THE WAY THE STORY GOES

REPEAT CHO.

BRIDGE:
HUMPTY DUMMY HE SAT ON A WALL
HUMPTY DUMMY HE HAD A GREAT FALL
ALL THE KING'S WOMEN
ALL THE KING'S MEN
COULDN'T PUT THAT DUMMY BACK TOGETHER AGAIN

REPEAT CHO., INSTRUMENTAL, FIRST VERSE
