Fox, The


Oh the fox went out on a chilly night,
prayed for the moon to give him light
He had many a mile to go that night before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o
He had many a mile to go that night before he reached the town-o

So he ran 'til he came to a great big pen
where the ducks and the geese were kept therein
He said "One of you is going to grease my chin before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o
He said "One of you is going to grease my chin before I leave this town-o

He grabbed a duck by the neck
Swung a goose over his back
He didn't mind the 'quack, quack, quack' and the legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o
He didn't mind the 'quack, quack, quack' and the legs all dangling down-o

Well old mother flipper-flopper jumped out of bed
out the window she popped her head
She cried, "John, John, the gray goose is gone! And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o
She cried, "John, John, the gray goose is gone! And the fox is on the town-o

So John, he ran to the top of the hill
blew his whistle so loud and shrill
Fox, he said, "I better flee with my kill or they'll soon be on my trail-o, trail-o, trail-o"
Fox, he said, "I better flee with my kill or they'll soon be on my trail-o"

Well, he ran 'til he came to his cozy den,
there were the little ones - eight, nine ten
They said, "Daddy, better go back again 'cause it must be a might fine town-o, town-o, town-o
They said, "Daddy, better go back again 'cause it must be a might fine town-o

Then the fox and his wife, without any strife,
cut up the goose with a fork and a knife
They never has such a supper in their life and the little one chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o
They never has such a supper in their life and the little one chewed on the bones-o
