To-morrow the Fox will come to Town by Thomas Ravenscroft

58. To-morrow the Fox will come to Town.

To-morrow the Fox will come to town;
Watch! watch! watch him well!
To-morrow the Fox will come to town;
Oh, neighbours, watch him well!
I must desire you, neighbours all,
To halloo the Fox out of the hall,
And cry as loud as you can call,

CHORUS.

Whoop! whoop! whoop! whoop! whoop!
And cry as loud as you can call;
Oh, watch him neighbours well!

He'll steal the hen out of the pen;
Watch! watch! watch him well:
He'll steel the hen out of the pen;
Oh, neighbours, watch him well!
I must desire, &c.

He'll steal the duck out of the brook;
Watch! watch! &c.

He'll steal the lamb from near the dam;
Watch! watch! &c.
