Lyrics

Once a little rabbit went hopping thru the woods

Poking and teasing whoever he could

He was feeling so mad, the little rabbit said

"I'm gonna bop somebody on the head."

         He saw a little mouse scurrying by

         He reached right down and poked her in the eye

Then he hopped and he hopped all the way home

And he stopped - and he cried - cause he was all alone

 

Again the little rabbit went hopping thru the woods

Poking and teasing whoever he could

He was feeling so mad, the little rabbit said

"I'm gonna bop somebody on the head."

         He saw a little spider weaving his web

         He reached right out and broke all the thread

Then he hopped and he hopped all the way home

And he stopped - and he cried - cause he was all alone

 

Again the little rabbit went hopping thru the woods

Poking and teasing whoever he could

He was feeling so mad, the little rabbit said

"I'm gonna bop somebody on the head."

         Then the little rabbit heard the Red Bird sing

         He jumped up high and bopped her on the wing

"Stop!" sang the bird, "this really must end

Hitting's no way to make a friend

If you feel angry, then use your words

And I'll be your friend," sang the wise little bird

 

Now the little rabbit plays under the trees

He says what he feels, doesn't hit or tease

Red Bird flies singing her song - “hm, hm, hm”

And the little rabbit hops and hums right along, “hm, hm, hm!”
