Little Foxes

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter/Grasshoppah

A lyric in 'Box of Rain' never performed by Hunter so far as I know. But recorded by Grasshoppah on their album Whoa Mama.

Sleepyhead
off to bed
The stars all twinkle bright
One by one
snug and tight
the little foxes sleep
Bullfrog sing
Crickets ring
Midnight shadows creep

You can't see the little foxes
Running through the woods at night
You can't see the hand that guides
Trust that it will guide you right


Safe and sound
Ring around
the roses in your head
Nightlamp glow
Time to go
Up the stairs to bed

The moon is shining
Through the lemon tree
Three blind mice in
har-mo-ny
Singing on the doorstep
way down under the breeze
"What about me?"

The cat is washing in the hall
The dog is by the fire
since you cannot have it all
Pick your true desire


In their den
snug and tight
the little foxes sleep
Bullfrog sing
Crickets ring
Midnight shadows creep
Midnight shadows creep
Midnight shadows
Midnight shadows
Midnight shadows creep
