Subject: Lyr Add: BUNNY ROUND-UP TIME (Gene Autry)
Words and music by Leo Israel and Stephen Gale [ASCAP credits Hermann Krasnow]
As recorded by Gene Autry on Columbia (39217), 1951, which you can hear at the Internet Archive.

[A] Over the prairie, Texas bluebells chime.
Get along, little cowboy; itís bunny round-up time.
Go ridiní to dreamland where cottontails do roam.
Get along, little cowboy; youíll bring a bunny back home.

[B] Thereís a little toy bunny a-hoppiní right by.
Thereís a sweet chocílate bunny with a jellybean eye,
But you got up your pony and on he goes
Till you rope a white bunny with the peppermint toes.

Yippee-I, yippee-A, yippee-I.

Then over the prairie while Texas bluebells chime,
Ride home, little cowboy, from bunny round-up time.
