Here's a Little Egg

Here's a little egg, so smooth and white.

Peck, peck, peck, there's something inside!

Peck, peck, peck, here comes a little beak.

Peck, peck, peck, here comes two little feet.

Peck, peck, peck and pick, pick, pick.

And crack, crack, CRACK!

Out pops the baby chick!

A chicken, so called to and by little children.
Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
