Barenaked Ladies – Fox On The Run lyrics

She walks through the corn leading down to the river.
And her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun.
She took all the love that a poor boy could give her
And left me to die like the fox on the run.

Like the fox (like the fox, like the fox) on the run.

Now everybody knows the reason for my fall
This woman tempted down in paradise hall. (That doesn't sound too bad.)
This woman tempted me and she took me for a ride
Now I'm like a lonely fox cause I need a place to hide.

You know, she walks through the corn leading down to the river.
And her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun.
You know, she took all the love that a poor boy could give her
And left me to die like the fox on the run. (boy)

Like the fox (like the fox, like the fox) on the run.

We'll drink a glass of wine and fortify the soul.
We'll talk about the world and friends we used to know. (great friends)
I've seen a string of girls who have put me on the floor.
The game is nearly over and my hounds are at my door.

You know, she walks through the corn leading down to the river.
And her hair shone like gold in the hot morning sun.
You know, she took all the love that a poor boy could give her
And left me to die like the fox on the run.

Like the fox (like the fox, like the fox) on the run.

Like a bird (like a bird) on a wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I'm tried (I'm tried) in my ways
To be free

Hit it!

I wanna rock right now
I'm a Base and I came to get down
I'm not internationally known
But I'm known to rock the microphone

Because I get stupid, I mean outrageous
Stay away from me if you're contagious
'Cause I'm a man, no, I'm not the loser
To be an M. C. Is what I chooser

Ladies love me, girls adore me
I mean even the ones who never saw me
Like the way that I rhyme at a show
The reason why, man, I don't know (I don't know) cause

It takes two (It takes two, It takes two) to make a thing go right
