OK, so does anybody still have a link to the other "foul owl" video?
The one where the young guy walks into a Boston bar and is confronted by a trash-talking owl? The original link in this thread doesn't work anymore

I wrote a review of this song for RockPeaks back in 2009 ... don't think I ever shared the link.
I definitely mentioned this thread in it. :-)

We were talking about Quincy Jones in another forum today and it made me want to revisit this wonderful place.

It's a new year for this thread, now going on 14 years.

So, The Little Willies, featuring Norah Jones has a second album out with Fowl Owl on it. It's very different, appropriately sultry and country. Catch it on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUhX8-1Ea_Q

By the way, Norah Jones and Quincy Jones are not related, her father is Ravi Shankar.

Let me just pull this thread into 2012. It deserves it.
I posted here before, on 17 Feb 07 to be precise, when I wrote I was 33. I'm 38 now, and I've fathered two kids since... "The Owl" is one of the few track in my iTunes library that has the "Lyrics" field completed, and the only track where it doesn't contain the lyrics, but a summary of this page. I watched the video on Youtube again today and I still love it...

LYRICS :



All you little birds better lock up tight

'Cause there's a foul owl on the prowl tonight.

Hey, little lark, get outta the dark,

Foul owl on the prowl.

Cute little jay, stay outta his way,

Foul owl on the prowl.

You just might be the quail he'll tail,

Foul owl on the prowl.

You just might be the swallow he'll follow,

Foul owl on the prowl.

If you hear him hoot, scoot,

If you pass his tree, flee,

If you catch his eye, fly,

Don't wait to say goodbye.

He's got a yen for a purty little hen,

Foul owl on the prowl.

He's hungry for a chick, so get home quick,

Foul owl on the prowl...whhhooo.

If you hear him hoot, scoot,

If you pass his tree, flee,

If you catch his eye, fly,

Don't wait to say goodbye.

He's got a yen for a purty little hen,

Foul owl on the prowl.

He's hungry for a chick, so get home quick,

Foul owl on the prowl...whhhooo

I just bought a soundrtrack CD "In The Heat Of The Night" & "They Call Me Mr. Tibbs". It contains 20 tracks from ITHOTN including "FOUL OWL" & "BOWLEGGED POLLY". It also contains 15 tracks from TCMMT.

I got it through AMAZON. I got a used (Very Good) copy for about 10 bucks inc. S&H. They also show new copies starting at $ 39.99 at the moment.

Wow. Just amazing, this forum about this song--especially since the thread originated 11 years ago. (Is that some kind of record?) I'm nearly 52, and have been wondering for YEARS whether the ITHOTN jukebox song was some little-known or unreleased Sham the Sham & the Pharaohs track. I mean, its resemblance to "Little Red Riding Hood" is unmistakeable, and caught my attention the very first time I ever heard it back in the 60s.

So after years of wondering about it every time the movie has aired on television over the years, I finally decided this morning to research it. Imagine my delight at finding this forum and the other sites mentioned by posters here! The story behind the song is fascinating: just the type of obscure pop music trivia I love. Thanks to everyone here for helping set the record straight.

It's 2011 now, going on 11 years for this thread.
There's an artist in San Diego with a painting of a Foul Owl.

Could be on the prowl.

Here's a website with a nice treatment of the song, written by a reader or contributor of this thread.

By the way, is it possible that Glen Campbell played the banjo for this song? He was a big star in 1967, winning 4 Grammys.

Came across this by googling "Bow Wow on the Prowl" as I was watching In the Heat of the Night.
What a surprise to find it's really Fowl Owl not Bow Wow. An even bigger surprise is all the homework everyone did on this site. You folks know your stuff.
Now, if you Google Fowl Owl on the Prowl, you can get downloads, information on the song, the lyrics, the movie, etc.
Amazing how much information has been added since this thread started back in '00!

Thanks for the chords Martin. Having lots of fun. Great song for the kids.

Bowlegged Polly chords anybody?

Not too sure how "PC" Bowlegged Polly is being as it seems to be about inbreeding and deformity and all. I take it that this song was written by Quincy Jones. The racial context of the film and the fact that it was sung by the "Rhinestone Cowboy" makes the song bitingly satirical of the Deep South. This is just one example of the very clever use of soundtrack music and music effects in this great film.

I have DEFINITELY seen the diner juke box scene with the original Sam the Sham song! I recall not knowing who it was that was singing about Li'l Red Riding Hood and wanting to find out. But WHERE and WHEN could I have seen/heard it??? Has there been a director's cut of the movie made or something? This is puzzling the crap outa me!! i can find no talk of a 'restored' or 'alternative original' version anywhere on the web.

I just watched ITHOTN for the first time tonight on BBC 4 in the UK, shown after an excellent program with Rich Hall on the history of Hollywood portrayals of the South.

When the jukebox scene came on, I leant straight over to the computer and Googled "Bow wow on the prowl..." Read through this thread, chuckled heartily, was sure it would end somewhere, but was pleased to see people still posting on the song in 2010! Just bought the track on iTunes and had to come back and post so I could join the Foul Owl Club.

Since all the previous links to download an MP3 version were dead I went ahead and made an MP3 from the youtube video and now I'm posting a link here.

If you use a player that supports album art there's a nice shot of Ralph leaning over the jukebox included and the 'comments' field has a summary of factual info I got from this thread.

I remember watching this with my dad when I was home sick, and we got into an argument about whether or not it was a "real" song. Well, come to find out it wasn't - that was my first post! - and now I find that it's INSPIRED BY a real song. Welp, see you in 2010!

This is a great forum going here. I just watched In The Heat Of The Night, last night again for an uncounted times over the years. It's one of those movies you never tire of.
And like everyone else, can't wait until Anthony picks open that "Seeburg Jukebox" to get a free play of Foul Owl.

For such a catchy tune it seems strange how it never got any air play anywhere in the country.
I wonder if it was ever available back in the 90's when Napster first appeared and everyone was uploading and downloading each others music files. I recall finding a few music files that I thought were impossibe to be had back then.

Well, Fowl Owl to all. Keep the bird alive and sing'in.

Why are you sorry Beans? I think we've all pretty much agreed on that but its a wonderful ripoff. Copyright royalties made it much better to write "original" stuff that was similar to the country/pop that was probably on the radio at a small town southern country station and Ralph's jukebox.

Did you ever read the story of how much Stephen King continues to pay in royalties for his book "Christine?" Every chapter opened with a few lines from a 50's R&R classic. He said he'd learned a serious lesson and would never do THAT again!

A couple of weeks ago, ITHOTN came on TV (TCM) and I had the opportunity to watch it for the first time since encountering this thread and becoming conscious of the song.

I certainly enjoyed the experience ~ brought a whole new perspective to watching a familiar old film!

The producers wanted to use 'Li'l Red Riding Hood' by Sam The Sham and The Pharaohs, which was a huge camp hit on the airwaves in 1966.

CLICK HERE

Unfortunately, Sam, who was known for his big ego, demanded an absurd amount of money for the rights to the song. So the producers had Quincy Jones write up something similar, which of course cost them much less money. When I hear it it sounds like a parody of the Pharaohs song, but that's just me I guess. The two songs do sound extremely similar.

The avi file is 16 MBs.

I also have a 92 MB avi of the clip (downloaded & converted from a flv video available on YouTube) from the movie wherein this song is played.
As noted in my mp3 notice just above, if anyone knows how to make it 'permanently available' to all who happen by this small Foul (Fowl) Owl forum email me and I'll send the files to you.
{I'm not an "intellectual property" lawyer, so I don't know the copyright infringement pecularities in all this, but since it's only a movie clip & a song from the soundtrack it can't be such a big thing. Or maybe it is.}

I just watched the "In the Heat of the Night" DVD last weekend. The commentary narrative that you can turn on during this movie discusses this song. It said to avoid paying royalities to play an existing song, Quincy Jones, who wrote the theme song, wrote "Bow Wow on the Prowl." This song only existed for this movie. The only place where it maybe recorded is on the movie sound track. I guess they may have released a movie sound track LP.

If for no other reason than to keep this thing going...

I like everyone else googled this song and found this terrific thread. Simply amazing! Great song, great movie. Weird how the song has such a cult following.

Amazing thread, still going after all this time. Mudcat at it's best! Thanx for the many links, the YouTube one from Jim is really cool, no interruptions in the song.

It's great how one song can get such a response and be so informative
