"Fox On The Run" as written by Andrew Scott, Stephen Priest, Brian Connolly and Michael Tucker....
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

[Chorus]

    General CommentAbout groupies. That's why they refer to "talking about every band. And the names you drop are second hand."

    General Commentit's either a plastic surgery victim ("You looked all right before"), a newbie transvestite ("Okay - you think you got a pretty face/But the rest of you is out of place "), or a washed-up groupie ("you talk about just every band /But the names you drop are second hand ").
    Or a surgically altered transvestite groupie. Yeah.

    Either way, they don't write pop songs like this anymore. So sweet, you'll need a filling.

    General CommentThe song is about a prostitute. Dunno why she's referred to as a 'Fox On The Run' but the band says it's so.

    General CommentI think this beats 'Ballroom blitz'. I love this song better. It's got more glam rock too it with great vocals.

    General Commenti think its about the morning after... at night, with beer goggles on, she looked fine, but the next day she's no fox.

    General CommentI always kinda figured it was about some girl who suddenly found herself "popular," because she changed her ways. Now she's a stuck-up bitch who thinks she's better than everyone else and demands attention.

    But that's just my guess. It kind of fits, but whatever.

    General Commentwow... and here was i thinking that "Ballroom Blitz" was their only good song! Man, everyone thinks of sweet as a one hit wonder band, but they had tons of good songs!

    General CommentIts about people that are fake.

    Like "You looked okay before" and "You - you talk about just every band / But the names you drop are second hand / I've heard it all before"

    Its just saying that he wants nothing to do with people that just tag along and that conform to their friends, not being their own person.
