1.

G / / / The Fox went out on a chilly night, |G / D / He prayed for the moon to give him light, |G / C / For he'd many a mile to go that night, |G D G / |D / G / Be-fore he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o, |C / G / |D / G / | He'd many a mile to go that night, be-fore he reached the town-o.

2.

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

3.

He grabbed the grey goose by the neck, He threw a duck across his back, And he didn't mind the quack, quack, quack, And the legs all danglin' down-o, down-o, down-o, He didn't mind the quack, quack, quack, and the legs all danglin' down-o.

4.

Well the old grey woman jumped out of bed, Out of the window she popped her head, Cryin' "John, John, the grey goose is gone, And the Fox is on the town-o, town-o, town-o, John, John the grey goose is gone, and the Fox is on the town-o".

5.

He ran till he came to his nice warm den, 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".

6.

The Fox and his wife, without any strife, They cut up the goose with a fork and a knife, And 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.
