Cottontail Lyrics

Way back in my childhood
I heard a story so true
'Bout a funny bunny stealin' some boo from a garden he knew

His mamma got worried
She told the bunny one day
Better watch for the farmer, heed what I say or he'll blow you away

(Oh..) He knew his mamma is right
So why don't he do what she say?
Maybe he just don't dig it
Or maybe a habit, or 'cause he's a rabbit

Count the crop, (better stop?)
You better stop and hop away

Out of the garden where carrots are dense, I found a hole in the fence
Every mornin' when things are still, crawl through the hole and eat my fill

The other rabbits say I'm taking dares, and maybe I'm wrong but who cares?
I'm a hooked rabbit! Yeah I got to cure a habit

[Count the crop] Yeah everyday I'm tryin' to avoid it
[Count the crop] What do I do, I know that I enjoy it
Really and true, I'm beggin' momma's pardon
All the time I'm headin' for the garden

Wee! Everything is sweet when the farmer's nappin'
Every little carrot is a stolen delight
And I keep forgetten' that the thing ain't right

So one day when I was deep in the meal
That farmer pulled a big "creep and steal"
Came at me with a big shot gun, and did I runnn!

I hustled really swiftly
Yeah split from there without a second to spare
I could hear the bullets fly' through the air

Now I knew what mamma told me, now I knew that she would scold me
She knew what I'd soon be feeling
If I didn't stop my stealin'

The farmer he really had sense
He plugged up the hole in the fence
Had me runnin' madly through the garden
Looking for a hole to crawl in

Hey, hey. You pick up what I say?
Hot head rabbit, if you keep your habit
Your mamma told ya when you hop, that if you stop you count the crop
He gets his beets and guns for you
Because carrots and you make a very fine stew

Son, he'll catch you on the run so you gotta find a quiet little corner where the farmer never comes
You got plenty patches so you snuggle in between them
Dig what I mean, I gotta tell you that'll keep you eatin

Run ya rabbit run. Now you had your fun
Run before you feel the shot gun, run on, run

Well now while you're in a panic you're forgettin' the garden gate. All you got to do around is lay around and wait
Right now the farmer thinks he gotcha. He really is itchin' to seal your fate

Don't ya see him? By the hole in the fence? You can beat him, it's a natural sense
While he's over by the fence a while away, keep on running 'til you're outta that gate

Now the farmer he was pantin to death
He never figured he was out gunnin'
That a while that he was catching his breath
He woulda needed it to out run him

Maybe you remember what you're mom told ya
Maybe take a beating, let your Pa scold ya
So hit the gate better be ready to wail
And when you do, you show the man your tail

[Wi Woo] Hurry up before you change your plan
[Wi Woo] Better run from the farmer man
[Wi Woo] Ooo you best make tracks
[Wi Woo] You dog-gone pesky hare
[Wi Woo] Head for home, bro
[Wi Woo] You got away with showing your tail
[Wi Woo] Weee! Dont' ever roam, ready to go home

Now you're goin' home to Mommsy and Popsy, and your little brothers Flopsie and Mopsie
Now you're gonna do what Momma intended. Now you know your carrot stealin' has ended

I've heard the old story
One rabbit's foot will bring luck
But they're much more lucky, luckier, natch, if that rabbit's attached!
