lyrics

Just the other day, I scampered past the fallen spruce patch. I'd gone before.

Through the wooden maze, I carried on, until a jaw trap had caught my tail.

It held me down, then I broke free without it.

Without a tail, I've too much shame for living, but
if all my friends would follow I would not have a care that I had

left my tail in sorrow, crying in despair. 

Waiting for tomorrow, to see how I should fair convincing

all the other foxes to lose theirs.

Softly stepping on the leaves among the ground nearby my leash

the eyes of all the other foxes 'round the bush, they spoke to me.

As I replied, I gave them reasons to pursue a look like this,
"the tail is heavy, and a useless body part you would not miss"

They stared me down, one had denied about it.

"You stretched the truth, that you'd rather walk without it."

They worked it out, my mind was dull to think,

if all my friends would follow I would not have a care that I had

left my tail in sorrow, crying in despair. 

Waiting for tomorrow, to see how I should fair convincing

my own self to swallow, a life I could not bear.
