Rhyme: Here is a bunny (Make fist with two fingers up straight.)
With his ears so funny.
Here is his hole (Circle fingers and thumb of other hand.)
In the ground.
When a noise he hears, (Rotate rabbit as if hearing noise.)
He pricks up his ears,
And jumps in his hole (Jump rabbit ears into hole.)
In the ground.

Come and let us gently wake them with a merry tune
Oh how still, are they ill, wake up soon
