Ian Burdon Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits. (84* d) Lyr Add: I DON'T WANT A BUNNY WUNNY (Tom Paxton) 15 Feb 07


As well as Jennifer's Rabbit mentioned above, Tom Paxton also penned the following to commemorate President Jimmy Carter's encounter with one of the fearsome (and apparently amphibious) rodents

I Don't Want a Bunny Wunny:

      I don't want a bunny wunny in my little row boat
      In my little row boat in the pond
      For the bunny might be crazy and he'll bite me in the throat
      In my little row boat in the pond

President Carter got into his boat
Wasn't in a hurry, wanted to float
Think about the country, think about sin
Along swum a rabbit, and it tried to climb in
And what did Jimmy say

Look at him swimming, look at him fly
Ears laid back and a gleam in his eye
Hissing through his front teeth, swimming like a seal
If you were the President, how would you feel
You'd prob'ly say

President Carter saved the day
Splashed with the paddle, rabbit swam away
Jimmy was a hero, felt it in his bones
Said in the words of John Paul Jones
