    I LOVE THE SONG!!!! Dog goes woof, cat goes meow. Bird goes tweet, and mouse goes squeak. Cow goes moo. Frog goes croak, and the elephant goes toot. Ducks say quack and fish go blub, and the seal goes OW OW OW. But there's one sound that no one knows... WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY? Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding! WHAT THE FOX SAY? Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow! Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow! Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow! WHAT THE FOX SAY? Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho! Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho! Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho! WHAT THE FOX SAY? Joff-tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff! Joff-tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff! Joff-tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff! WHAT THE FOX SAY? Big blue eyes, pointy nose, chasing mice, and digging holes. Tiny paws, up the hill, suddenly you're standing still. Your fur is red, so beautiful, like an angel in disguise. But if you meet a friendly horse, will you communicate by mo-o-o-o-orse, mo-o-o-o-orse, mo-o-o-o-orse? How will you speak to that h-o-o-orse, h-o-o-orse, h-o-o-orse? WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY?! Jacha-chacha-chacha-chow! Jacha-chacha-chacha-chow! Jacha-chacha-chacha-chow! WHAT THE FOX SAY? Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow! Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow! Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow! WHAT THE FOX SAY? A-hee-ahee ha-hee! A-hee-ahee ha-hee! A-hee-ahee ha-hee! WHAT THE FOX SAY? A-oo-oo-oo-ooo! Woo-oo-oo-ooo! WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY?! The secret of the fox, ancient mystery. Somewhere deep in the woods, I know you're hiding. What is your sound? Will we ever know? Will always be a mystery what do you say? You're my guardian angel hiding in the woods. What is your sound? (A-bubu-duh-bubu-dwee-dum a-bubu-duh-bubu-dwee-dum) Will we ever know? (A-bubu-duh-bubu-dwee-dum) I want to, I want to, I want to know! (A-bubu-duh-bubu-dwee-dum) (Bay-buh-day bum-bum bay-dum)

                      Well, the fox says "ring-a-ding-ding-ding-ding, wa-pow-pow-pow-pow" and the like, but that aside, that is a good book. Now sing it with me in a chorus! Dog goes woof, cat goes meow...
