Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits
Subject: Lyr Add: RUN LITTLE RABBIT (Cab Calloway)
(A. Gibson)
As recorded by Cab Calloway and his Orchestra on Okeh (6084), 1941, which you can hear at the Internet Archive.

Run, little rabbit.
Hit the road, little rabbit.
Got done(?), big rabbit.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

Find a log, little rabbit.
I got my dog, little rabbit.
You’re in the fog, little rabbit.
* * * * *

You may dodge and Susie-Q,
But I’ll boogie-woogie after you.
You better not sit; you better not sigh.
I’ll run you round and shoot you down and fry your hide.

You better run, big rabbit.
Hit the road, big rabbit.
I got my gun, big rabbit.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

[Asterisks represent “bangs” on a drum.]
