The fox went out on a chilly night
He thanked the Moon for giving him light For he’d many a mile to go that night
Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o He had many a mile to go that night
Before he reached the town-o He rode till he came to a great big pen
Where the ducks and the geese were put therein Will a couple of you be my friends?
Before I leave this town-o, town-o, town-o “Yes!” they said, “we will be your friends
Before you leave this town-o” Then John he went to the top of the hill
Blowed his horn both loud and shrill The fox he said, “It has been quite a thrill
And now I must hit the trail-o, trail-o, trail-o” I will be back soon; I will, I will!
Now it’s time to hit the trail-o”
