Every little bunny
Has a habit that is funny.

It doesn't matter where he goes
He always wrinkles up his nose.

Ena Hawken

I am a Little Bunny

I am a little bunny.
Eyes on the sides of my head.
I see to the left and right,
Behind me and ahead.

I am a little bunny,
These are my very long ears.
They help me hear many sounds,
I can hear from far and near.

I am a little bunny,
My strong legs are for jumping.
Warning others of danger,
I use my feet for thumping.

I am a mother bunny,
With a white and fluffy tail.
I lift it up into the air,
Babies now follow my trail.

This Little Bunny

This little bunny has two pink eyes.
This little bunny is very wise.
This little bunny is soft as silk.
This little bunny is white as milk.
This little bunny nibbles away
At cabbages and carrots the livelong day!

Funny Ears

Here is a bunny with ears so funny
And here is his hole in the ground.
When a noise he hears, he pricks up his ears,
And jumps in his hole in the ground.

Here's a Rabbit

Oh, here's a fluffy rabbit
With two ears so very long
See him hop, hop, hop about
On legs so very strong.
He nibbles, nibbles carrots
For his dinner every day
And as soon as he has had enough
He hops, hops, hops away.

Robbie the Rabbit

Robbie the Rabbit is fat, fat, fat
His soft little paws go pat, pat, pat
His soft little ears go flop, flop, flop
And when Robbie runs, he goes hop, hop, hop.

Little Peter Rabbit
(to the tune of "Battle Hymn of Republic")

Little Peter Rabbit had a
fly upon his ear.

Little Peter Rabbit had a
fly upon his ear.

Little Peter Rabbit had a
fly upon his ear.

And he flicked it till it flew away!

The Rabbit

Brown bunny sites inside his burrow
Till everything is still,
Then out he slips along the furrow,
Or up the grassy hill.

He nibbles all about the bushes,
Or sits to wash his face,
But at a sound he stamps, and rushes
At a surprising pace.

You see some little streaks and flashes,
A last sharp twink of white,
And down his hidy-hole he dashes
And disappears from sight.

Edith King

There is nothing so sweet as a bunny
A dear, little, sweet, little bunny
He can hop on his toes
He can wiggle his nose
And his powder puff tail is quite funny.

Bright, Shiny Noses

(to the tune of "My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean")

Some rabbits have bright shiny noses
I'm telling you now as a friend
The reason their noses are shiny--
Their powder puff's on the wrong end
Wrong end, wrong end
Their powder puff's on the wrong end
Wrong end, wrong end
Their powder puff's on the wrong end.


My two white rabbits chase each other
With bumping backs.
They go hopping, hopping,
And their long ears
Go flopping, flopping.
And they make faces with their noses
Up and down.

I went inside their fence
To play rabbit with them.
And in one corner
Under a loose bush
I saw something shivering the leaves.
And I pushed and looked.
And I found-
There in a hole in the ground-
Three baby rabbits
HIDDEN away.
And THEY made faces with their noses
Up and down.
