Lack of Education
Lyrics from The Fox and the Hound
Written by Jim Stafford
Performed by Pearl Bailey as Big Mama
[Big Mama:] Now, if you're so foxy and old Chief is so dumb
Then why does that hound get the fox on the run?
'Cause he's got the hunter
And the hunter's got the gun
Lack of education!
If you pal around with that Copper hound
You'll wind up hangin' on the wall
Keep you nose to the wind
And you'll keep your skin
'Cause you won't be home
When the hunter comes to call
[Tod:] Oh, Big Mama, I know Copper would never track me down.
Well, Copper, he's my best friend.
[Big Mama:] Ho ho, your best friend!
Now, Copper's gonna do what he's been told.
Suppose he's chasin' an old fox in an old fox hole
And along comes the hunter with a buck shot load.
[Big Mama:] Elimination
[Dinky:] Lack of education!
[Big Mama:] You better believe it, Tod!
