Subject: Lyr Add: BENNY THE BOB TAILED BUNNY (G MacKenzie)
Words and music by Brad Browne & Irving Bibo.
As recorded by Gisele MacKenzie on Capitol #1997, 1952, which you can hear at the Internet Archive.

[A] Benny the bunny, that funny little bunny,
Benny the bob-tailed bunny—
If you’ve been good, you’re on his list,
So when Easter comes around you won’t be missed.
Benny the bunny, he’ll make your day so sunny
When you jump out of bed,
For you’ll find eggs upon your chair,
On the stair, most ev’rywhere,
And who do you think it is that paints and puts them there?
It’s Benny the bob-tailed bunny!

[B] Watch out! (Watch out!)
And mind your mom and dad.
Benny said to give you all this warning.
And he’s (and he’s)
The bestest friend you’ve had.
You’ll find that out one certain Sunday morning.
