The Odd Couple

The Odd Coupl

The skunk and the fox formed an odd couple,

Joining forces to make a quick buck.

When the skunk balked, the fox didn’t scruple,

When the fox held back, the skunk ran amok;

When the skunk was cold, the fox was hot;

When the skunk was bold, the fox was yellow;

When the fox was ready, the skunk was not;

When the fox was firm, the skunk was jello.

But each night when the farmer fell asleep

And the watchdog dreamed of a great big bone,

They milked all the cows and fleeced all the sheep,

And harvested crops that others had sown.

As birds love worms and bees love honey,

This couple loves nothing more than money.
