What does "be busy hatchin" mean?

Emily

By saying his thoughts would "be busy hatchin", he is saying that he would be thinking of getting ideas if he had a brain. The phrase "be busy hatchin" is particular to this song, not a standard English phrase.

What does "nigh" mean here? Is it adverb or adjective? And "on" seems not necessary here, is it speaker's mistake?

Kai

"Nigh" here is used as an adverb to mean near, almost, or close to. "Nigh" is a very old-fashioned word and is not very common to use anymore, but it is most common to use in British English. The word "nigh" in this case is often followed with "on" or "onto", so "on" is not a mistake here.
