I’m a silver headed rooster and I live in Lyall bay (x2)
I crow every morning and at the end of everyday

I’m a little over fifty and way past twenty-one (x2)
But I’m still young at heart try and catch me when I run

I can dance real good you ought to see me strut my stuff (x2)
I’m a silver headed rooster just tell me baby when you’ve had enough

Well whenever you’re in Wellington come and visit me (x2)
We can party all night long and then go swimming in the sea

Everyone that knows me says I’m a freewheeling soul (x2)
I wake up in the morning and I’m a ready to roll

I’m a silver headed rooster got those silver headed rooster blues (x2)
All the way from my white head down to my dancing shoes
