lyrics:  

Well the fox went out on a chilly night
Prayed to the moon to give him light
Many miles to go that night
Before he reached the town
Town-o, town-o, many miles to go that night
Before he reached the town

He ran 'til he came to the farmer's den
The ducks and the geese were keep therein
"A couple of you are gonna grease my chin
Before I leave this town"
Town-o, town-o, "a couple of you are gonna grease my chin
Before I leave this town"

He grabbed the grey goose by the neck
Threw a duck across the back
He didn't mind the quack quack quack
And the legs all dangling down
Down-o, down-o, he didn't mind the quack quack
Legs all dangling down

The old gray woman jumped out bed
Out of the window she popped her head
Crying, "John, John, the grey goose is gone
The fox is on the town"
Town-o, town-o, "John, John, the grey goose is gone
The fox is on the town"

[when played as part of the Barnyard Suite:
above > jam > Cluck Old Hen > Spider > jam > below]

Well he ran 'til he came to his nice warm den
There were the little ones 8, 9, 10
"Daddy, daddy go back again,
It must be a mighty fine town"
Town-o, town-o, "Daddy, daddy go back again
Must be a might fine town"

Fox and his wife without any strife
Cut up the goose with a fork and knife
They never had such supper in their life,
With the littles ones chewing on the bones
Bones-o, bones-o, they never had such a supper in their life
Little ones chewing on the bones
