lyrics

There once was a fox who sat on a stone
who cried as the animals wouldn’t leave him alone.
The crow came along saying don’t feel so bad.
The big brown bear said you ought to be glad.
It was only the hummingbird that didn’t mind the pouting,
for she was thirsty, and the fox was a fountain.
"Sob me a story I can take to the bank."
So the fox kept crying, and the hummingbird drank.

That’s making love, minus the making,
minus the love, and it’s yours for the taking.

So Viva my miracle, if ever you find
yourself on the stone, keep this in mind.
It’ll hurt like hell, but it ain’t gonna kill ya
And you might learn something, and at first it’ll thrill ya.
But it ain’t love if it’s pain, the two aren’t the same,
and those you say different are playing a game.
And games can be fun, even when you lose,
so don’t be afraid, just know what you choose:

That’s making love, minus the making,
minus the love, and it’s yours for the taking.
