Electric Light Orchestra – The Fox lyrics

I wait till everyone`s asleep
Then out into the night I creep
No one can see me now
Or hear me running, soundlessly

The moon`s the only light I need
To search for food, young ones to feed
But as the dawn is drawing near the earth, my way`s not clear
I`m trapped on the outside

Moonlight save me, moonlight save me
Moonlight save me, moonlight save me

Unearthly fear, it grips my skin
Unearthly sound, the hunt begins
I hear excited cries
But dare not look from where I`m hiding

The multi-coloured humans ride
Soon they will find me where I hide
The brown and white tormentors
Begin to howl and then I`m running

Moonlight save me
I cut across the trail I left five miles before
One chance to throw them off my scent but I`m not sure
An elder told me it had worked sometime before

My heart is beating like a drum
I make the ridge, but can`t go on
I turn to face my death
But nothing comes to stop me breathing

Down in the clearing now I see
They`re searching all around for me
Confusion everywhere
But I am safe up here, I`ve won, I`ve won, I`ve won, I`ve won, I`ve won
