Sam Cooke - Little Red Rooster Lyrics




I'm a little red rooster,
Too lazy to crow for day
I'm a little red rooster,
Too lazy to crow for day
Keep everything in the barnyard,
Upset in every way

Dogs begin to bark now,
And the hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark now,
And the hounds begin to howl
Watch out stray cat,
The little red rooster's on the prowl

If you see the little red rooster
Won't you please drive him home
If you see the little red rooster
Won't you please drive him home
Been no peace in the barnyard
Since that little red rooster's been gone

I'm a little red rooster,
Too lazy to crow for day
I'm a little red rooster,
Too lazy to crow for day
Keep everything in the barnyard,
Upset in every way

Sam Cooke Little Red Rooster Comments
  1. gwen reed

    Great music my mom jam right here🤒

  2. laminage

    He was also a major influence on Smokey Robinson. You Really Got A Hold On Me was inspired by Bring It On Home To Me. I heard his Catalogue is owned by Michael Jackson. He, like Jackie Wilson is also very much a UK Icon as well.

  3. Truth Seeker

    Wait. What? Let me find out Sam Cooke did a Frank Ocean on us before we could ever imagine what a Frank Ocean was.

    The Best of the Best what else can I say. .This is Soul and this is Truth. One of the well known characteristics of a man is to keep women bickering and fighting among themselves; especially over him! The Soul of Sam Cooke is explicitly Beautiful and Great! The 'Instinct' abilities of real musicians to interrelate communicating by 'Soulful Sounds' cannot be taught in any school..this have to be heard and felt through out ones body, mind, soul and spirit!! My early childhood started on the lower East Side of Detroit, Michigan. I started singing on my Uncles crap table many moons ago! I ate, slept, lived by, studied by Black Soul Music! My Uncle was a 'Street Person' thus I missed a lot of the Christian Church influence. Still by the help of the Divine Spirit I lived without ever in my life smoking anything, never drinked alcohol or used street drugs/nor sold any ever in my life! Now that I am old, still Lovin' Soulful Good Music. ..This Old Hen is still rocking, humming and stopping to wonder how I did it!?!? My Religious Disciplines fell from the East and Africa. ..I Love This Sound ALWAYS...Groove ON...

    Rolling Stones should have left it alone.....

    This wasn't the original either... And if anything, the Stones were much more closer to keeping with the original.

    Anita Walker

    Sam Cooke just knew songs he didn't write or compose, he still made them his own

    Mark Sheriff

    @Big Z Lacrosse Network cool. I am a fan of both the Stones and Sam Cooke. By chance would you know who did the original?

    Big Z Lacrosse Network

    @Mark Sheriff It was written by Willie Dixon for Howlin' Wolf.

    green323turbo

    Howlin wolf played in england with the Stones as backup in early 60's.. the Stones version is the great. This is a bit too mellow.

  15. Denise Green

    wow  old memories

  16. Laura Womack-Cromartie

    What memories and wonderful sounds come to life when I'm listening to Sam Cooke singing, thank you Nostalgickjukebox for all the Sam Cooks songs you share. 

    Carolyn Williams

    Laura Womack-Cromartie: THANK YOU WHOEVER YOU ARE WHO CAN APPRECIATE THE SHEER SOUL AND LOVE OF THE GIFT THAT SAM COOKE WAS GIVEN. HE USED IT TO MAKE US UNDERSTAND HIS RHYTHM AND BLUES AND LIFE FOR OUR COMFORT; USE IT NOW FOR JUST THAT... COMFORT OF HEART. IT WON'T BE LONG AND PRAY THAT YOU ARE HERE WHEN HE RETURNS WITH THAT GOLDEN VOICE TO SING PRAISES TO OUR CREATOR. PS. 83:18; JOHN 17:3; ACTS 24:15!!!
    PRAISE JAH!!! 💜💜💜
