The Fox

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, etc. [Repeat with just one '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, etc. [Repeat with just one '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, etc. [Repeat with just one '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" etc. [Repeat with just one '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, etc. [Repeat with just one '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, etc. [Repeat with just one 'bones-o.']
