The Fox (Lyrics)

Listen (MP3)
Watch

The Fox went out on a chilly night
He took a left at the town stoplight
He was driving a Mustang, red and white
As he drove through the town-o, town-o, town-o
He was driving a Mustang, red and white
As he drove through the town-o

He drove up to the Goose drive-in
To the drive-up window and looked therein
And he gave the lady a foxy grin
As he rolled his window down-o, down-o, down-o
And he gave the lady a foxy grin
As he rolled his window down-o,

Gimme a goose, family size,
Drumsticks, breast, and thighs
With extra sauce and a side of fries
All roasted nice and brown-o, brown-o, brown-o
With extra sauce and a side of fries
All roasted nice and brown-o,

Well the old Mrs. Fiddle Faddle jumped out of bed
Out of the window she popped her head
Cryin' John, John the great goose is gone
The Fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o
John, John the great goose is gone
And the Fox is on the town-o

[BRIDGE (Fiddle)]

He drove back to his cozy den
And there were his little ones, 8, 9, 10
And his wife said, George, better go back again
And she stamped her foot on the ground-o, ground-o, ground-o
his wife said, George, better go back again
And she stamped her foot on the ground-o,
I told you fast food isn't for me,
Too much salt, too many calories,
Go find a goose who is running free
And scratching for food on the ground-o, ground-o, ground-o
Go find a goose who is running free
And scratching for food on the ground-o

So the fox he got back in his car
And he looked for a goose near and far
And he bought salad dressing in a jar
And lettuce by the pound-o, pound-o, pound-o
And he bought salad dressing in a jar
And lettuce by the pound-o,

Now they're a vegan fox family
No more meat, and no dairy,
But sometimes Mr. Goose gets free
And sneaks away into town-o, town-o, town-o
But sometimes Mr. Goose gets free
And sneaks away into town-o.

He goes around to visit the geese
And he preaches about love and peace
And the geese all watch him carefully
As he invites them to kneel down-o, down-o, down-o
And the geese all watch him carefully
As he invites them to kneel down-o, down-o, down-o
