The Fox

  • Being wiry and thinking loudly
    About the things sent to make you move
    You can't help it, there's no one in the world
    Knows you just, just the way you do
    So we keep darting through the holes
    As the hunter and the fox
    Run the gauntlet's savage road

    Winter's heavy and partly cloudy
    And the snowfall leaves the tracks that catch a few
    Bit if you're wiley, you will leave them lying
    Snared up in the traps that they set for you
    And it's an evergreen affair
    As temptation taunts the fox
    Into the hunter's waiting lair

    And for mile after mile you'll never see me tire
    You'll never see me slow down, for a while
    Cause I am the fox, like it or not
    I'm always gonna be there running over the rock
    Yes I am the fox, a fascinating cross
    Of sharp as a whip and tough as an ox
    Yes I am the fox

    It may sound crazy but it's often lonely
    And the restless heart should be captured once in a while
    Then you can use them, and you often fool them
    Into believing whatever you desire
    So I'll keep moving through the night
    The hunter and the hunted
    On their designated flights Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
