"LONDON FOX (A LULLABY)" [2014]


Late last night

Out in the London fog

On the corner of

Queensdale and Addison

With red eyes wide

I spied a London fox

And I died inside

Growing mad again

 

O London fox

O London fox

O London fox

Won’t you knock it off?

 

With all my might

Out in the London fog

I got to Bassett Road

And Ladbroke Grove

So enflamed with pride

There stood the London fox

In all her hide

And all her bones

 

O London fox

O London fox

O London fox

Please knock it off

 

O London fox

O London fox

O London fox

Just knock me off
