Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits.
There's a number of songs/rhymes about rabbits in this thread:
thread.cfm?threadid=97895&messages=33#1935296 Lyr Add: Mistah Rabbit Patting rhyme .

I'm interested in reading other examples of rabbit/hare/bunny songs posted in this thread.

Also, I've a question for Billy the Bunnie: Is the Australian song "Run Rabbit Run" that you mentioned in your first post the same as the 19th century African American song "Run N***** Run" ,also known as Run Children Run" and other such titles?

The chorus of that song [using the "children" title] is "Run Children Run/the patterollers get you/run children run/it's almost day".
