Sweet Dreams 04:26
Where do I meet you now you’re no longer here? Meet you dreamland where worries disappear You’re a whisper in the wind A flicker in the light A smile upon my cheek When you kiss me goodnight Sweet dreams, sweet dreams Made of memories You massaged my legs when I’d been running at school Helped me with my Latin tables Bam, Bas, Bamus Bam, Bas, Bamus You’d plait my hair with sleepy eyes Plait my hair from your sleepy bed Sweet dreams, sweet dreams Made of memories Memories of you alive Nothing prepares you Memories of you alive Now you’re no longer here to whisper in my ear Whisper in the wind, can you hear me? Now you’re no longer here to whisper in my ear Whisper in the wind, I can hear you You’re a whisper in the wind A flicker in the light Smile upon my cheek When you kiss me goodnight A whisper in the wind A flicker in the light Smile upon my cheek When I kiss you goodnight Sweet dreams, sweet dreams As you lay beneath the trees Sweet dreams, sweet dreams, sweet dreams

The Fox 02:37
The fox went out on a cold cold night Prayed to the moon to give him light He'd many a mile to go that night Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o He’d many a mile to go that night Before he reached the town-o He ran till he came to a great big pen Where ducks ’n geese were kept therein A couple of you gonna grease my chin Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o Said a couple of you gonna grease my chin Before I leave this town-o He grabbed the grey goose by the neck Threw a duck across his back He didn't mind their quack, quack, quack And the legs all dangling down-o, down-o, down-o He didn't mind their quack, quack, quack And legs all dangling down-o Old Mother Flipper-Flopper jumped out of bed Out of the window she stuck her head Crying, "John, John! grey goose is gone The fox is down on the town-o, town-o, town-o!” Crying, "John, John, grey goose is gone Fox is down on the town-o!” John he ran to the top of the hill To blow his horn both loud and shrill Fox said "better flee with my kill They'll soon be on my trail-o, trail-o, trail-o." Fox said "better flee with my kill They'll soon be on my trail-o” He ran till he came to his cozy den There were his little ones eight, nine, ten Crying, “Daddy, daddy better go back again It must be a mighty fine town-o, town-o, town-o!" Crying, “Daddy, daddy better go back again, It must be a mighty fine town-o” Then the fox and the wife without any strife Cut up the goose with a fork and 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-o
