One cold frosty night (One cold frosty night)
I believe -- it was in the winter --
Two foxes went out for some prey.
They trotted along in frolicsome song
To cheer their lone-li-ly way, way, way,
To cheer their lone-li-ly way.
They trotted along (They trotted along)
In hopes -- to find --
A rabbit or a goose astray.
Well, at last 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 he could wish for his dinner.
Well, at last they found a hole by the ground
And they both went in like sinners, sinners, sinners,
They both went in like sinners.
They both went in (They both went in)
With a squeeze -- and a grin --
And the chickens they were quickly killed.
Well, one of them munched and he feasted and he lunched
Till his belly was fair-li-ly filled, filled, filled,
Till his belly was fair-li-ly filled.
The other fox was wise (The other fox was wise)
He looked all around -- with both of his eyes --
And would hardly eat 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)
Turned very red -- with 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.
