Songs to Sing to Your Bunny

"Read To Your Bunny" (I)
(Sung to: "Rock a Bye Baby")

Read to your bunny in the tree top,
Read to your bunny and do not stop.
When she grows up,
Your bunny will read.
Read to your bunny,
And she'll succeed!


"Did You Ever See a Bunny" (T)
(Sung to: "Did You Ever See a Lassie")

Did you ever see a bunny, a bunny, a bunny,
Did you ever see a bunny, munching his lunch?
He munches and crunches, and munches and crunches.
Did you ever see a bunny, munching his lunch?

Did you ever see a bunny, a bunny, a bunny,
Did you ever see a bunny, flap his big ears?
He flips them and flaps them and flips them and flaps them.
Did you ever see a bunny, flap his big ears?

Did you ever see a bunny, a bunny, a bunny,
Did you ever see a bunny, hop down the lane?
He hips and he hops and he hips and he hops.
Did you ever see a bunny, hop down the lane?

 

"The Bunny-Pokey" (P)
(Sung to: "Hokey-Pokey")

You put your bunny ears in,
You put your bunny ears out,
You put your bunny ears in
And you wiggle all about.
You do the bunny pokey,
And you hop yourself around,
That's what it's all about.

You put your bunny nose in...
You put your bunny tail in...
You put your bunny foot in...
You put your whole self in...

Some songs adapted from Animal Piggyback Songs by Jean Warren.
