Okay, this started out as a joke posted on my FB Page by my friends (and sometime Beta Readers), Kit and Michelle.  It read as follows:

“Kit and I think that this would be a great “what-not-to-do” piece for Music Mondays <nudge, wink, just kidding : ) >”

I’m curious, so I click.  And I find this really, really goofy video, The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?).  It has to be a joke.  They can’t be serious?

And get this, it has over 121 million views!  Yep, not 121 views, 121 million.

The video was so ridiculous I just couldn’t use it.  Although, I had two glasses of wine so I did giggle a lot. However, I am a writer. I wasn’t going to entertain such silliness.

This morning I sat down at my computer, devoid of inspiration.  I was going to go running, which always helps, but we just said good-bye to our exchange student and my husband snored last night.  I was tapped, exhausted.  In fact, I went back to bed.  (I think I’m fighting a cold, and I am not fighting it well.  Hmmm, there’s an inane pun in there somewhere.)

Where was I?

Right, needed inspiration.  I checked out the iTunes Top 200.  Hold on to your hats, folks.  The Fox is #7.  It seems clear that the universe is trying to send me a message.  I am a writer and I totally entertain this kind of silliness. (Either that or we are nearing the Fall of Western Civilization.)

Brace yourself:

The end is nigh, folks.  We’re talking last days of Rome stuff.

Mitch? Kit? I so blame you two.

And I am NOT paying $1.29 to download this song.

Tee-hee!

Tee-hee!

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 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?

(Fox Sings)
Wa-wa-way-do Wub-wid-bid-dum-way-do Wa-wa-way-do

Will we ever know?

(Fox Sings)
Bay-budabud-dum-bam

I want to

(Fox sings)
Mama-dum-day-do

I want to
I want to know!

(Fox sings)
Abay-ba-da bum-bum bay-do
