Testo The Fox

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

He ran 'til he came to the (?) pen
Where the ducks and the geese were kept therein
He said, "a couple of you are gonna grease my chin
Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o
A couple of you are gonna grease my chin before I leave this town-o"

He grabbed the grey goose by the neck
Threw the ducks across his back
He didn't mind the "quack, quack"
And the legs all danglin' down-o, down-o, down-o
He didn't mind the "quack, quack," and the legs all danglin' down-o

The old woman jumped out of bed
Out of the window, she popped her head
Cryin', "John, John, the grey goose is gone
And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o
John! john! the grey goose is gone and the fox is on the town-o!"
Well he ran til he came to his cozy den
There were his little ones, eight, nine, ten
Cryin', "daddy, daddy, better go back again
Cause it must be a mighty fine town-o, town-o, town-o
Daddy, daddy, better go back again cause it must be a mighty fine town-o!"

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

(Yeah)
