Peter Cottontail

Okay, I've heard the song on the radio once this morning and I can't get it out of my mind!!
Of course, like any other song that gets stuck in your head, I can't remember ALL of the words!!
CAN YOU? (Try to sing it all the way through first without checking out the lyrics below.)

So, after going over it at least a zillion times (okay, maybe only about 100 times), I finally looked them up online.

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Easter's on its way

Bringin' ev'ry girl and boy
A basketful of Easter joy
Things to make your Easter
Bright and gay

He's got jelly beans for Tommy
Colored eggs for sister Sue
There's an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet too.

Here' comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity Happy Easter Day

Look at him hop and listen to him say,
"Try to do the things you should"
Maybe if you're extra good
He'll roll lots of Easter eggs your way

You'll wake up on Easter morning
And you'll know that he was there
When you find those choc'late bunnies
That he's hiding ev'rywhere,

Here' comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppityHappy Easter Day.


Now, for the true Easter trivia question? Who sang the version that gets played on the radio most?

Give up?

Gene Autry (for those of you too young to recognize him, he was the "Singing Cowboy")


I've been dipping candy all day today. I'm now wearing chocolate, smelling chocolate, seeing chocolate (even with my eyes closed) and thinking chocolate!!! I keep reminding myself I do this out of love for the family but that doesn't stop me from getting pretty tired of this stuff!!! maybe I'll share some of my chocolate quotes with you on Sunday. I've already planned on telling y'all the story of the Night Before Easter, tomorrow.

Bet y'all have some funny Easter tales of your own.

Now you have me singing that song!
(And thinking about chocolate!)
Thanks a LOT.

Ok - what's with the rabbit song? Why do these things get stuck in our heads? Every morning on my school bus run I'm hummy whatever song or commercial I heard last on the radio. Some are quite annoying. I think the worst one is if I see a dear - I'm singing:
Doe and deer - a female deer, ray - a drop of morning sun.
I'll stop now.
