The Fox
Nickel Creek Lyrics


The Fox went out on a chilly night
He prayed for the moon to give him light
For he'd many a mile to go that night
Before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o
He'd many a mile to go that night before he reached the town-o

He ran till he came to the farmer's pen
The ducks and the geese were kept therein
He said "a couple of you are gonna grease my chin,
Before I leave this town "
Said a couple of you are gonna grease my chin, before i leave this town-o

He grabbed the great goose by the neck
And he threw a duck across his back
And he didn't mind the quack quack
And the legs all dangling down-o
He didn't mind the quack quack
And the legs all dangling down-o

The old grey woman jumped out of bed
She ran to the window and popped out her head,
Crying John, John, the great goose is gone
And the fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o
John, John, the great goose is gone and the fox is on the town-o

He ran till he came to his nice warm den
And there were the little ones, eight, nine, ten
Sayin' Daddy, Daddy, better go back again
For it must be a mighty fine town-o, town-o, town-o
Daddy, Daddy, go back again for it must be a mighty fine town-o

The fox and his wife, without any strife
Cut up the goose with a fork and a knife
They never had such a supper in their life
And the little ones chewed on the bones-o, bones-o, bones-o
They never had such a supper in their life
And the little ones chewed on the bones

Town-o town-o
Finally find his little skinny behind
Gonna kick it all over this town!

Well, the Gates been a'runnin' ever since that day
Thinks he can hide but he can't get away
When I finally find his little skinny behind
Gonna kick it all over this town-o

Ethan Peacock

When the gates found out about my plan , He packed up his bag, turned tail and ran, Megalo-man took it out on the lam, And hid way underground-o, ground-o, ground-o, Megalo-man took it out on the lam, And hid way underground-o

Touched down at Seattle and got off the plane. Hit Starbucks to get out of the rain. Paid all of my dough for a thimble of joe full of foam and a cinnamon brown-oh, brown-oh, brown-oh all of my dough for a thimble of joe full of foam and a cinnamon brown-oh

Jed Is Also Here

Well that didn't do enough to ease my pain, I went down to Dulles and I got on a plane saying "This is all Billy Gates's fault and I'm gonna be tracking him down-o, down-o, down-o, this is all Billy Gates's fault and I'm gonna be tracking him down-o. "

There's still plenty of quality bluegrass in the world. When it comes to art, anything you're looking for is being made now more than ever; you just gotta find it.
