It’s a beautiful morning out here in the hood
After hunting for mice that tasted so good.
There’s a quiet in the wood that’s callin’ for a nap
So shut yo face and don’t gimme no crap.
Hey who’s the sucka that’s blowin’ that horn
Destroying the quiet of this peaceful morn
And makin’ my blood boil hot with scorn?
I’ll make him wish he never was born.
And now there’s a stench that smells like dog
Smells so bad I’d swear it was a hog.
I gotta move along and find a better place
Without a trace of the stink in this space
And just in case those dogs wanna race.
Now what’s this crap– they startin’ to howl.
I’m pretty damn sure they don’t want me as a pal
If they think they can scare me, I’ll give ‘em a run
And show them how us foxes have fun.
A run through the woods to give ‘em my scent
Then a quick left turn to wonder where I went.
Then a trot down the hill to walk through the creek
Done got ‘em so tongue tied they can’t even speak
So, I run in the open to give them a thrill
And then back track so someone yells “hounds running heel”
I love the confusion that leads to contusion
So I sit and rest much to my amusing.
But somehow they’ve recovered and seem to have discovered
In spite of my perfection, the path to my direction.
I squeeze through the fence where the wire has been cut
But not cut enough for a big dog butt.
As I circle behind to run in a loop,
That first hound leaves the wire and jumps over a coop.
I might have underestimated the degree of their drive
So my goal now is to get out of here alive.
I made sure my afterburners were all the way on
Made a few jukes and was totally gone.
And jaunted through the swamp to coat my feet with muck
Just hopin’ for some luck that I wouldn’t get stuck.
Raced out the other side and stopped to take a rest
When I heard those stupid dogs livin’ up to the test
And me doin’ my best to not have cardiac arrest.
So then I made up my mind that I was in a bind
Of the worst kind with them dogs so close behind.
In order to quiet that damn hound sound,
With a final burst of speed, ‘dis fox has gone to ground.
