Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits.
Then there's the Maori version of Run Rabbit, Oma räpeti.

Oma räpeti, oma räpeti
Oma, oma, oma
Oma räpeti, oma räpeti
Pühia te kaiako

Pako pako pako
Ko te tangi ö te pü
Oma räpeti, oma räpeti
Oma, oma, oma         

Run rabbit, run rabbit
Run, run, run
Run rabbit, run rabbit
Shoot the teacher

Bang, bang, bang
goes the farmer's gun
Run rabbit, run rabbit
Run, run, run


I don't know about the 'shoot the teacher' bit - that's from the NZ Folk
site.
