A cleverly worded Country Comedy piece about that sensitive subject of nose picking! It's a story song with little vignettes talking about the subject. This is hillbilly country with chickens as background singers.

Story behind the song
I always wanted to write a comedy piece like those I listened to growing up on the Dr. Demento Radio Show. Things like "Shaving Cream", "Witch Doctor", "Guitarzan" were always fun to listen to and have staying power. I thought it would fun to try it. This is my first attempt and I hope you like it.
Lyrics
Just Pickin’ By Christopher Wade Eicher Copyright 1988 Here’s a little ditty the boys and me wrote about a favorite American pastime. We hope you like it….Here we go… V1. Sittin’ in Traffic, nothing to do Radio’s broke, got a hole in your shoe. But life itself is pretty OK, your nose is your friend you pick a friend today Chorus: Pick Pick Pickin’ Pick Pick Pickin’ Pickin’ your life away Pick Pick Pickin’ Pick Pick Pickin’ Pickin’ like a chicken on the 5th of May (2, 3, 4, 5…..) V2. Got a friend in the band .. a pretty nice guy, But he’s got one vice and he ain’t shy When the band is done and they leave the bar, That pickin’ don’t stop with his Guitar (Oh you know what I mean. We all do it…ain’t nothing to it) Chorus: Pick Pick Pickin’ Pick Pick Pickin’ Pickin’ your life away V3. Well your sittin’ there at that traffic light, and up on your left a-comes “Miss Right” Then you look to the left and you happen to see her sink a manicured nail to knuckle three. (All the way to China town, There goes romance. Right out to pasture.) Chorus: Pick Pick Pickin’ Pickin’ your life away V4. There’s a little boy in a shoppin’ mall, a not real big, about yay tall He’s occupied as you look and linger as daylight loses an index finger. (A little nasal nougat.) Chorus: Pick Pick Pickin’ Pick Pick Pickin’ Pickin’ your life away (Cinco DeMayo Chicken style) CHICKENS SING A VERSE V5. There’s a little girl her name is Bridgette, She don’t hesitate to bury a digit But she’ll use a finger and that ain’t dumb, ‘cause you’ll widen a nostril if you use a thumb (Talk about your stretch marks, how embarassin’. ) Chorus: Pick Pick Pickin’ Pick Pick Pickin’ Pickin’ like a chicken on the 5th of May (June, July, August….) V6. (And now the moral of the story) It’s Ok to unclog your noses, it helps in life to smell life’s roses But all we ask is be discreet when using a digit to harvest nose meat Chorus: Pick Pick Pickin’ Pick Pick Pickin’ Pickin’ your life away Pickin’ like a chicken on the 5th of May (That’s the end, ain’t no more. I think the chickens and me will ride gloriously off into the sunset. Always wanted to do that. Alright chickens, let’s go. Wagon Hoooooooo (Galloping SFX))
