Subject: Lyr Add: THE RABBIT WITH THE TWO BUCK TEETH
THE RABBIT WITH THE TWO BUCK TEETH
Words and music by Jimmie Dale & Roger Genger.
As recorded by Mervin Shiner on Decca (27977), 1952, which you can hear at the Internet Archive.

Did you see the rabbit with the two buck teeth?
Did you ever count the carrots that rabbit could eat?
Now it may sound strange, but I have been told
Since he ate fourteen carrots, he is worth his weight in gold.

Did you ever see the rabbit with the two buck teeth?
Did you ever meet a rabbit with so much conceit?
Now he puffs his chest as he walks around,
‘Cause he owns all the cabbage and the lettuce his town.

Now it doesn’t seem right and we all agree
That a rabbit should never gloat.
With his eyes so bright, he laughs with glee
When he says: “I’m the rabbit with my own fur coat.”

Did you ever see the rabbit with the two buck teeth?
Now he has a funny habit: shakes hands with his feet.
Some people think it’s sweet, but wait until you meet
The rabbit with the two buck teeth.
