This is a repeat song. There is one leader and it is done in front of an audience. It is helpful if there are people who know the entire sequence in the audience so they can everyone along. This is how it goes:

Leader: One fat hen

All: Repeats

By the end, most often people can't keep up so you only have the few people who already know it by heart reciting the entire thing while everyone looks uncertainly around while mumbling and pretending they know how it goes! It's a blast and a hoot rolled into one!
