Cock: Let My Hen Be

This is base on relationship. Here, there is a use of an imagery; cock. He protects what is his by warning the other roosters to stay of his hen. When reading this, please picture a cock, trying to get his way through a hen. On the contrary, another cock claims ownership of the hen a real cock, strong enough to win in the walk.

New Kid on the block     —-     newcomer to a place

Head in the block     ——     To sale at auction

Turn back the hand of time—–     Rewind time

Cock of the walk     —–     one who dominates others within a group

In dock             —–     Out of action for repair

Soda to hock         —–     Beginning to end

Leave my block         —–     Leave my Terrain

 

Cock: Let My Hen Be

 

Ay you young and growing cock

Be no new kid on the block

That doesn’t know the hen for the Cock

Put not your head on the block

I’m still that red comb big-cock

 

Red signs no turning back the clock

She’s belongs to the cock of the walk

Leave my hen or go in dock

Stop watching her feathers-out like a hawk

I’ll hunt you down from soda to hock

 

Ay you young and growing cock

Watch the clock, leave my block

I’m still that ruddy bigly cock

Cock-a-doodle-doo that hen is mine

Ay young roosters and little chicks.
