A FOX WENT OUT IN A HUNGRY PLIGHT.
2.  The fox when he came to yonder stile,
He lifted his lugs, and he listened a-while, "0,ho!" said the fox,"'tis but a short mile From this to yonder town, 0!" &c.
3.  The fox he came to the farmer's gate,
When whom should he see but the farmers drake, I love you well, for your master's sake, I long to be picking your bones, O! &c.
4.  The grey goose came right round the hay-stack, " O, ho!" says the fox," You're very fat;
You'll do very well to ride on my back, From this to yonder den.O!" &c.
5.  The farmer's wife she jumped out of bed, And out of the window popped her head; "John! John! John! the grey goose is gone,
And the fox is off to his den, 0!" &c.
6. The farmer he loaded his pistol with lead, And he shot the old fox right through the head; "Ah,ha!" said the farmer,"You're now quite dead, And no more you'll trouble the town, 0!" &c.
