What Does the Fox Say?  Author: Ylvis Illustrator: Svein Nyhus



Ylvis is a comedy duo from Norway consisting of brothers Vegard and Bård Ylvisåker. They debuted as professional variety artists in 2000 and have since had a string of highly successful variety shows, humoristic concerts, TV shows, radio shows and music videos. They are currently the host of popular Norwegian talk show, I kveld med Ylvis (“Tonight, with Ylvis”). Their song “The Fox” went viral on YouTube in September 2013 with over 230 million views, which brought the brothers to international attention.

The lyrics to the song are as follows:

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?

[Chorus 1]
What the fox say?

What the fox say?

What the fox say?

What the fox say?

[Verse 2]
Big blue eyes
Pointy nose
Chasing mice
And digging holes
Tiny paws
Up the hill
Suddenly you’re standing still

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Your fur is red
So beautiful
Like an angel in disguise
But if you meet
A friendly horse
Will you communicate by
How will you speak to that

What does the fox say?

[Chorus 2]
What the fox say?

What the fox say?

“A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!
A-hee-ahee ha-hee!”
What the fox say?

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?
I want to
I want to

want to know!
(Abay-ba-da bum-bum bay-do)

Here are my fall nails that inspired this blogpost.
