lyrics

Chicken in a hutch
He don't do much
Just pecks and flaps and wanders about
His cousin chick
Was getting sick
But someone's let the chicken out

He raised alarms
About battery farms
The work of a hero never ends
He gave the birds
What they preferred
To stop them munching all their friends

I want to get out of town
I want to bring Tesco down
I want to make cabbage stew
I want to keep chickens too
I want to raise goats and lambs
I want to be a rural man
I want to be rock'n'roll
Like Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall

He grows PSB
In the shade of a tree
He's such a country stereotype
He overdosed
On a nine bird roast
He knows his woodcock from his snipe

I want to get out of town
I want to bring Tesco down
I want to make cabbage stew
I want to keep chickens too
I want to raise goats and lambs
I want to be a rural man
I want to be rock'n'roll
Like Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall

In welly boots
He hunts and shoots
He picks his herbs in the morning dew
He's got it right
He's living the life
That's why I want to be like Hugh

It's not just for his dashing silhouette against the sky
Hughie's got integrity and that's the reason why

I want to get out of town
I want to bring Tesco down
I want to make cabbage stew
I want to keep chickens too
I want to raise goats and lambs
I want to be a rural man
I want to be rock'n'roll
Like Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall

Ooh ooh ooh, I wanna be like Hugh ooh ooh
I wanna walk like Hugh, talk like Hugh too ooh ooh
You'll see it's true ooh ooh someone like me ee ee
Can learn to be like someone like Hugh (one more time)
Can learn to be like someone like Hugh
