  • Dog goes "woof"
    Cat goes "meow"
    Bird goes "tweet"
    And mouse goes "squeek"
    Cow goes "moo"
    Frog goes "croak"
    And the elephant goes "toot"
    Ducks say "quack"
    And fish go "blub"
    And the seal goes "ow ow ow"

    But there's one sound
    That no one knows
    What does the fox say?

    "Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!
    Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!
    Gering-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!"
    What the fox say?

    "Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!
    Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!
    Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!"
    What the fox say?

    "Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!
    Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!
    Hatee-hatee-hatee-ho!"
    What the fox say?

    "Joff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!
    Tchoff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!
    Joff-tchoff-tchoffo-tchoffo-tchoff!"
    What the fox say?

    Big blue eyes
    Pointy nose
    Chasing mice
    And digging holes
    Tiny paws
    Up the hill
    Suddenly you're standing still

    Your fur is red
    So beautiful
    Like an angel in disguise
    But if you meet
    A friendly horse
    Will you communicate by
    Mo-o-o-o-orse?
    Mo-o-o-o-orse?
    Mo-o-o-o-orse?
    How will you speak to that
    Ho-o-o-o-orse?
    Ho-o-o-o-orse?
    Ho-o-o-o-orse?

    What does the fox say?

    "Jacha-chacha-chacha-chow!
    Chacha-chacha-chacha-chow!
    Chacha-chacha-chacha-chow!"
    What the fox say?

    "Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!
    Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!
    Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!"
    What the fox say?

    "A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
    A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
    A-hee-ahee ha-hee!"
    What the fox say?

    "A-oo-oo-oo-ooo!
    Woo-oo-oo-ooo!"
    What does the fox say?

    The secret of the fox
    Ancient mystery
    Somewhere deep in the woods
    I know you're hiding
    What is your sound?
    Will we ever know?
    Will always be a mystery
    What do you say?

    You're my guardian angel
    Hiding in the woods
    What is your sound?
    (Wa-wa-way-do, wub-wid-bid-dum-way-do, wa-wa-way-do)
    Will we ever know? (Bay-budabud-dum-bam)
    I want to (Mama-dum-day-do) I want to, I want to know!
    (Abay-ba-da bum-bum bay-do) Writer/s: Bard Ylvisaaker, Christian Loechstoeer, Mikkel Eriksen, Nicholas Tor Hermansen, Vegard Ylvisaaker

  • George from Vancouver, CanadaSeems odd that the show's name is Norwegian and is on Norway TV, but the song's in English?
  • Camille from Toronto, OhA song with a gimmick: "What does the fox say?" As the song continues, the lyrics become "what the fox say?" and imo, these guys are pretty close to that other expression, abbreviated "WTF". No matter how innocent sounding the lyrics on the surface, I'm sure they have a double meaning, and when these guys sing this song in concert, I bet they unabbreviate those other words at the top of their lungs along with the audience.
  • Heafy from Kincumber South, AustraliaMany people think a fox howls/barks (because they look canine like), but they actually make a crying sound similar to a baby's cry.
