Cottontail City

BunniesJump7

In Cottontail City, a city so pretty
‘Twas there that I first met dear Buttons & Bows.
They sang their sweet songs through streets all day long.
They sang: “Hippity-hoppity! Hip-hop-heigh-ho!
Hip-hop-hip-hop-ho! Hip-hop-hip-hop-ho!
Hippity-hoppity! Hip-hop-heigh-ho!”

In Cottontail City, dear Bows looked so pretty.
She wore in her fur many lavender bows.
Then Buttons the Bunny, who was rather funny,
Joined her in singing. It was quite a show!
“Hip-hop-hip-hop-ho! Hip-hop-hip-hop-ho!
Hippity-hoppity! Hip-hop-heigh-ho!”

In Cottontail City, they sang their sweet ditty.
The people did gather, a crowd start to grow.
And soon everyone there, was having such fun there,
They cheered: “Encore!
Please sing more, dear Buttons & Bows!”
“Hip-hop-hip-hop-ho! Hip-hop-hip-hop-ho!
Hippity-hoppity! Hip-hop-heigh-ho!”
