lyrics

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
