Sunday Samples 342

September 8, 2013

Again, I’ve been lax and busy with other things, but this Sunday I have the perfect, weird selection. The Norwegian group Ylvis has posted what seems to be a late — but strong — entry in the contest for 2013’s “song of the summer” with “The Fox”, which reminds me of an electronic version the sort of thing Flight of the Conchords would do. The video has quickly gained popularity and notoriety — with excellent, surreal reason — and it makes me ponder other possibilities for electronic kids’ music. Maybe a deep-house groove on the importance of handwashing?

Dog goes woof; cat goes meow
Bird goes tweet and mouse goes squeak
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]
