Sons e o verbo Go (goes) "the cat goes meow": Como funciona

Eu vi hoje em um vídeo dos cantores Ylvis, chamado the fox (inclusive se vocês não viram eu recomendo, é muito divertido) e no início do vídeo o cara diz uma monte de nomes de animais seguidos da palavra goes e depois o nome dos sons que esses animais fazem, exemplo: Duck goes quack. A minha dúvida é quanto ao sentido da palavra goes aqui, ele significa nesse caso "vai"? Se sim não ficaria meio estranho?
Desde já muito obrigado! Ah e vejam o vídeo é muito bom hehehehehe.

E se eu usar "does" no lugar de "goes", terá o mesmo sentido?

Not really, at least to my thinking.

Firstly, DO is to "activities", wich is something you do by your own volution.
Do is used also in some "fixed expressions" e.g. do well (estar bem de vida, se dar bem em algo -numa prova etc)

You won´t see the "cat did meow", not in a usual way.
Notice the "general activities" here.

I must say, great question of yours. You are a sharp knife on the drawer. ;)

Ah, I was going to forget...

You can use DO when you are referring to it the second time, as in:
The sheep went baa (she bleated) when she saw me bringing the bale of hay. She does it everytime she spots me with hay.
To avoid repeating verbs you can use DOES/DO/DID.
