What DOES the Fox Say

mouse’s new play mate
squeaks a lot, but doesn’t quack. . . 
my rubber ducky

rub a dub ba dub
five fish swimming in my tub. . . 
blub blub blub blub blub

reindeer on my roof
my puppies try to warn me. . . 
woof! woof! woof! woof! woof!

It isn’t the sound 
you need to worry about. . . 
*when elephants toot!

moo! The cows cried out
but cows can’t make the “v” sound. . . 
they crashed into me!

when birds sing tweet tweet
they need to realize that
cats are hearing “treat!”

out on my front lawn
lying silent and lifeless. . . 
*the frog that had croaked

clever little fox
whatever it is you say. . . 
I got nothing for ya!

*For my non-American friends who may not know 
The lingo, “toot” also means “to fart” and “croak” has
the slang meaning “to die.”

Per request of Scat A., my favorite sound in the song 
“What Does the Fox Say” is BLUB!!!” Just Love how
it comes out when I speak it!
