Sweet - Fox On The Run




"Fox on the Run" is a song by the British band Sweet, first recorded in 1974. It was the first Sweet single written by the band, rather than producers Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman, and was their 14th single overall. The song became the best charting single in Australia in 1975, with six weeks at number one.


Two versions were recorded by Sweet. The original version was produced by Mike Chapman in association with Nicky Chinn on the European version of the 1974 album Desolation Boulevard. Sweet also recorded and produced a more pop-oriented version as a 7" single in 1975, which is the more familiar version of the song. The 1975 single version was included on the Capitol Records version of Desolation Boulevard.






Lyrics



I don't want to know your name

'Cause you don't look the same

The way you did before

OK you think you got a pretty face

But the rest of you is out of place

You looked all right before


Fox on the run

You screamed and everybody comes a-running

Take a run and hide yourself away

Fox on the run

F-foxy, foxy on the run and hideaway


You-you talk about just every band

But the names you drop are second hand

I've heard it all before

I don't want to know your name

'Cause you don't look the same

The way you did before
