Bunnies in the Meadow       (Tune of: Wheels On the Bus)Bunnies in the meadow go hop, hop, hop
Hop, hop, hop
Hop, hop, hop.
Bunnies in the meadow go hop, hop, hop
All morning long.

... bounce up and down
... crunch: "Munch, munch, munch"
... shake-shake their tails


Rabbit Rabbit Carrot Eater
Rabbit rabbit, carrot eater
He says there is nothing sweeter
Than a carrot every day
Munch and crunch and run away

Bunny-Pokey
(Tune of "Hokey Pokey")
You put your bunny ears in
You put your bunny ears out
You put your bunny ears in and you shake them all about
You do the Bunny-Pokey and you turn yourself about
That's what it's all about!

You put your bunny nose in…
You hop your bunny feet in…



Did You Ever See a Rabbit?
(Tune of "Did You Ever See a Lassie?")
Did you ever see a rabbit?
A rabbit, a rabbit
Did you ever see a rabbit that hops so fast?
Hops this way and that way
And this way and that way
Did you ever see a rabbit that hops so fast?

… that hops so slow?
….that hops on one foot?
… that hops backward?


If You're Hoppy and You Know It
(Tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It")
If you’re hoppy and you know it, hop around
If you’re hoppy and you know it, hop around
If you’re hoppy and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you’re hoppy and you know it, hop around.

…hop around
…shake your tail
…stomp your feet
…wiggle your nose

Little Peter Rabbit song
(Tune of "Glory, Glory Hallelujah")
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose
And he flicked it till it went away (toe, ear, paw, etc.)

Over in the Meadow
Over in the meadow,
Underneath the sun,
Lived a Mother Rabbit
And her little rabbit one

“Hop,” said the Mother.
“I hop,” said the one.
So they hopped and they plopped, underneath the sun.

Over in the meadow,
Where the stream runs through,
Lived a Mother Froggie,
And her little froggies two

“Swim,” said the Mother.
“We swim said the two.
So they swam and they splashed, where the stream runs through.

Over in the meadow,
In a hole in a tree,
Lived a Mother Bluebird
And her little birdies three.

“Sing,” said the Mother.
“We sing,” said the one.
So they sang sweet songs, in the hole in the tree.

Over in the meadow, 
By an old barn door,
Lived a Mother Mousie,
And her little mice four

“Squeak,” said the Mother.
“We squeak,” said the four.
 So they squeaked and they peeked by the old barn door.

Over in the meadow,
In a snug beehive,
Lived a Mother Honeybee
And her little bees five

 “Buzz,” said the Mother.
 “We buzz,” said the five.
 So they buzzed all day in their snug beehive.

Rabbit, Rabbit, What Do You See?
Rabbit, rabbit, what do you see?
I see a butterfly flying by me!
Butterfly, butterfly, what do you see?
I see a frog hop-hopping by me! 
Frog, Frog, what do you see?
I see a mouse squeaking by me! 
Mouse, mouse, what do you see?
I see a squirrel climbing by me! 
Squirrel, squirrel, what do you see?
I see a bluebird flying by me!
 Bluebird, bluebird, what do you see?
I see: • A white rabbit • A yellow butterfly • A green frog • A gray mouse • A brown squirrel That’s what I see!
