You have as merry a voice as any angel in heaven.
A poor widow lived in a small farm with her two daughters. She had many animals but her greatest possetion was the rooster, Chanticleer.
Chanticleer had seven wives but his favorite was Pertelope. One night he has a nightmare where he is chased by a fox that kills him. When he confesses his dream to Pertelope she tells him he is a coward so he ignores the dream.
While in the field he sees the evil fox Don Russel. He then starts to run away until the fox calls him and gets his attention by complimenting him on his voice.
No more flattery!
After complimenting him on his voice Don Russell tells him that he wants to hear him sing. So Chanticleer closes his eyes to sing and the fox grabs him from the neck and starts to run with him toward the woods. All the other animals start running towards them to help him.
Chanticleer then tricks the fox into letting him go. As soon as he opens his mouth Chanticleer flies on to a tree so he will be out of his reach.
Don Russell tries again to convince Chanticleer to come down from the tree by flattering him, But Chanticleer does not fall for it anymore. He learned not to be fooled by flattery and he won't make the same mistake again.
