The first time I ever saw a fox
I shall never forget
He was not in the forest
Or in a zoo

The first time I ever felt a fox
Was when I touched that coat
And wept sorrowed tears
It felt so soft and smooth

The first time I saw a fox

Had I not checked the label

The first time I saw a fox
Rage rushed through me
Tears flowed from me
Sorrow overcame me

The first time I saw a fox
Was in that store
On that day
In that way

This was not

The first time
I would ever see
A fox
