Jim Dixon Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits (117* d) Lyr Add: BENNY, THE MAGIC BUNNY (Kenny Roberts) 19 Feb 21

Words and music by Al Hoffman & Dick Manning.
As recorded by Kenny Roberts with the Owen Bradley Quintet on Coral (60660), 1952, which you can hear at the Internet Archive.

[A] Benny, the magic bunny
Has a little magic hat,
Says: “Rabba-zabba-zoo!”
And there’s a kangaroo,
Presto! Just like that.

Benny, the magic bunny
Makes a bunny’s ears stand up.
He puts a pussycat
Into the magic hat.
Presto! There’s a pup.

[B1] Rabbits run to see his tricks.
They come from far and near.
He can make himself tall.
He can make himself small,
Or even disappear.

[C] Benny, the magic bunny,
With his little magic hat,
Can take the darkest day
And make it bright and gay,
Presto! Just like that.


[B2] Benny never has to search
For food when he wants lunch.
He can reach in his hat,
And bingo! Like that,
There’s carrots by the bunch.
