PETER COTTONTAIL
Written by Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins
As recorded by Gene Autry on Columbia (38750), 1950.

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin' down the bunny trail.
Hippity-hoppin’, Easter's on its way.

Bringin' every girl and boy
Baskets full of Easter joy,
Things to make your Easter bright and gay.

He's got jelly beans for Tommy,
Colored eggs for sister Sue.
There's an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet, too.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin' down the bunny trail.
Hippity hoppity, happy Easter day.

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin' down the bunny trail.
Hippity, hoppin’, Easter's on its way.

Try to do the things you should.
Maybe if you're extra good,
He'll roll lots of Easter eggs your way.

You'll wake up on Easter mornin’
And you'll know that he was there,
When you find those choc'late bunnies
That he's hiding ev'rywhere.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity, happy Easter day.
Hippity hoppity, happy Easter day.
