Subject: Lyr Add: THE TWO FOXES
Well, some time later, I have actually learned the Two Foxes song I mentioned last year. Here it is.

THE TWO FOXES

On a cold frosty night
On a cold frosty night
I believe it was in the winter
Two foxes went out for prey
They trotted along with a frolick and song
To cheer their long lilly way way way
To cheer their long lilly way

They trotted along
They trotted along
In hopes to find
A rabbit or goose astray
Until they came to some better game
In the farmer's barn by the way way way
IN the farmer's barn by the way

On the roost there sat
On the roost there sat
Some chickens, very very fat
As a fox could wish for his dinner
They came til they found a hole in the ground
And they both crept in like sinners sinners sinners
And they both crept in like sinners

They both crept in
They both crept in
with a squeeeeze and a grrrin
And the chickens were quickly killed
And one fox lunched and he crunched and he munched
'til his belly was fair lilly filled filled filled
'til his belly was fair lilly filled

The other fox was wise
The other fox was wise
He looked all around with both of his eyes
And he hardly ate at all
For when he came in with a squeeze and a grin
He noticed that the hole was small small small
He noticed that the hole was small

The other fox, you see
The other fox, you see
Grew very very red from embarrassment
At the end of a farmer's pole
He got that way with a whick and a whack
With his bottom corked up in a hole hole hole
With his bottom corked up in a hole.
