Lyrics

Well the fox went out on a chilly night

He prayed for the moon to give him light

He had many a mile to go that night

Before he’d reach the town-o, town-o, town-o

He had many a mile to go that night

Before he’d reach the town-o

 

Well he ran ‘till he came to a great big bin

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”

He said “a couple of you are gonna grease my chin,

Before I leave this town-o”

 

Well he grabbed a gray goose by the neck

And he threw a duck across his back

He didn’t mind their QUACK, QUACK, QUACK

And their legs all danglin’ down-o, down-o, down-o

He didn’t mind their QUACK, QUACK, QUACK

And their legs all danglin’ down-o

 

Then old Mrs. Flipper Flopper jumped out of bed

And out of the window she stuck her head

She said “get up John the gray goose is gone

And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o”

She said “get up John the gray goose is gone

And the fox is on the town-o”

 

So John he ran to the top of the hill

And he blew his horn both loud and shrill

The fox, he said “I better flee with my kill

Or soon they’ll be on my trail-o, trail-o, trail-o”

The fox, he said “I better flee with my kill

Or soon they’ll be on my trail-o, trail-o, trail-o”

 

So the fox he ran to his cozy den

And there were his little ones 8, 9, 10

They said “Daddy, daddy better go back again

 ‘cuz it must be a mighty fine town-o, town-o, town-o”

They said “Daddy, daddy better go back again

 ‘cuz it must be a mighty fine town-o!”
