I stand corrected. It's "Chicken On The Rocks."

I'm so glad you found that, BW :)

1. I couldn't get that song out of my head.

2. You have been so generous with your time on other episodes making links to the songs of those episodes that you made available through your own website. I'm sure it's fun to make those clips, but I'm glad you didn't make it yourself this time because you do work too hard, and it is appreciated :)

Thanks for finding this link :D

Gig-gle! How'd you manage to find it? Internets searching, or Deep-Throat e-mail informant?

Good find, Big-Will!

Not only that, but as the guy explains in the video clip, "Chicken On the Rocks" is simply a different arrangement of the intro / bridge to the old American folk song "Turkey in the Straw" -- which is why the music in the balls-bouncing scenes may have sounded vaguely familiar even if you'd never heard the "Chicken on the Rocks" Moog-synthesizer version. Now that I think about it, this same melody was also used more than a few times by Carl Stalling, the guy who directed the music for the classic WB cartoons in the '30s and '40s. (I seem to recall that Stalling used a slower-tempo version of the melody as a musical cue for characters who were dumb hicks and/or walking drunkenly.)

Here's Turkey in the Straw as performed by the Wiggles (if only I had some medicinal marijuana...)

EDIT: I've subsequently discovered that the actual name of the tune is Chicken Reel, and it was originally published in 1910 as a ragtime piano piece. But it's often performed as a medley with "Turkey in the Straw".

Here's a video of the actual song. (Not live.)

I'm guessing they've made their own version of this.
