Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits.
There the fox and the hare, the badger and the bear
and the birds' on the green-wood tree,
there's the pretty little rabbits all engaging in their habits
and they've all got a mate but me.

From the Bob and Jacqueline Patten Collection
Collected in Rockliffe / Wreay, Cumbria, England, UK

John O'Connell from Baile Mhuirne, Co. Cork gave me the song, originally an English folk song and published in The Oxford Book of Traditional Verse. (Jimmy Crowley, notes 'Uncorked!')
