Dog goes woof, cat go meow.
Bird goes tweet, and mouse goes squeak.
Cow goes moo. Frog goes croak, and the elephant goes toot.
Ducks go 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!

WHAT THE FOX SAYS!

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! ?

WHAT THE FOX SAYS!
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!

WHAT THE FOX SAYS!
A-oo-oo-oo-ooo!
A-oo-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? Will we ever know?
I want to, I want to, I want to know!

    Ylvis is apparently clueless about what a fox says. So he writes an awesome song that sounds epic and has annoying 5th grade boys blurting lyrics out every 5 seconds. Don't get me wrong, i love this song. It's just that the video is... Questionable. The lyrics are easy to remember, so annoying kids are belting them out all the time and not being respectful to other people's ears. On the plus side, the song is awesome! Ylvis is awesome! His voice is awesome! Despite it's weirdness, the video i also awesome! Yolo, peace out, and goodbye peeps! -marry oli
    (p. S. For those who don't know a fox actually makes a strange barking sound not quite like a dogs. )

    Best song ever! My brother introduced me to this song and ounce I introduced it to my cousin the introducing kept on going and then wapapapapapa pow my whole family loved it every time my mom hears someone put it on she runs to that person and starts dancing yes my family is weird!

    Well the meaning of this song is that:
    Ylvis has no idea of what a Fox says so he makes weird noises and puts on a Fox costume and makes a music video!

    I almost forgot even my school loves the song! There was an assembly and all the little small first graders sang the song it was so hilarious! I laughed so hard I could not stop laughing until I went to the classroom it was awesome! This song is one of the top ten greatest songs in 2013!

    What it means really is just talking about animals but my brother loves. This song and so does my three sisters we all love it even people in. My class as soon as I heard it in the weekend and then when I got back to school every body starts to sing it but it is kind of getting annoying because I hear heaps of people sing it all the time, there is like at least one person singing it each day so basically it's literally stuck in my head and now I can't stop singing it. So it's like when I sing it my brother.
