Rabbit, come and play with me,
Long Ears, come and play with me.
Rabbit, Rabbit, do not hide,
Let us frolic side by side.
Rabbit, Rabbit, pick a bloom,
Long Ears, Long Ears, pick a bloom.
Pick a flower, Rabbit, do,
Choose a red one or a blue.
Rabbit, show me bunch of flowers,
Long Ears, show me bunch of flowers.
Oh, how gay it is and bright
Rabbit, Rabbit, hold it tight!
Rabbit, join me in a dance,
Long Ears, join me in a dance.
Rabbit, Rabbit, dance away,
Dance the whole long summer day!
