The Brer Bunny Bop
Bunny was a trickster and a mean one too
He loved to play his jokes on all the folks he knew
One day he found a way to play a funny prank
On two snakes living by the riverbank
Every bunny let's hop
With a hippidy-hop don't stop
We're bouncing to the Brer Bunny Bop
Both the snakes thought they were living all alone
Thought the muddy riverbank was all their own
Until the day Brer Bunny came a-hoppin' along
He found a way to make his day and prove them wrong
One by one he visited each muddy slope
Holding in his rabbit paw a piece of rope
He knocked upon the door and when the snake uncurled
Said "I'm the strongest rabbit in the whole wide world!"
Bunny asked the snakes to try a tug-of-war
But neither of the snakes knew what he had in store
He gave them each the rope but it was all pretend
They didn't know the other snake was at the other end
Both the snakes were thinkin' this was easy to win
They tried their very hardest to pull Rabbit in
But Rabbit sat there laughing and he just couldn't stop
As they fell into the water with a big SPLASH-PLOP!
