Could anyone confirm what words the choir sing in the middle of Death Trip, please?

It sounds like "All the boys say run like a chicken run, you'll take some licking son, run, run run." :laugh: :lol:

This has been bugging me since I first heard the song in the mid seventies. The question was published in a music paper in 1975 but was never answered.

Many thanks.

Adam

That sounds about right to me except I thought it was "All the boys say you run like a chicken runs...."
