MY CHOCíLATE RABBIT
(Gerald Marks, Milton Pascal)
As recorded by Rosemary Clooney on Columbia (90101-V), 1951, which can be heard at the Internet Archive.

I got a brand-new Easter outfit,
A coat and hat and all the rest,
But there was one thing more from the candy store
That I really loved the best.

I got a chocolate rabbit
For a special treat,
A great big chocolate rabbit
Sweet enough to eat.
So I ate his ears on Sunday,
His nose I finished Monday,
And Tuesday I nibbled on his feet.

I ate his tail on Wednesday.
Thursday, I kept on.
By Friday he was going.
Saturday he was gone.
Oh, I loved my chocolate rabbit
From the moment that he came,
And if I get another one,
I'll love him just the same.
