Jennifer's Rabbit (Tom Paxton) Jennifer slept in her little bed With dreams of a rabbit in her little head Jennifer's rabbit, brown and white Left the house and went to town one night Along with a turtle and a kangaroo And seventeen monkeys from the city zoo They went for a ride on an old street car They tried to drive it but they didn't get far They all got tired and decided to go To see the people in the picture show Jennifer's rabbit, white and brown Looked in the windows of the shops downtown He found a dress for Jennifer to wear And a pretty blue ribbon for her long blond hair Then the rabbit and the turtle and the kangaroo Bowed to each other like polite folks do They went to a shop where the cookies are free And they all had cookies and oolong tea Then, "My!" said the turtle as the clock struck three "The hour is growing very late for me." "Not at all," said the rabbit. "If you give me a chance, I'll lead all the monkeys in a hula dance!" So they danced all night and the moon danced too Then the rabbit and the turtle and the kangaroo Jumped into bed and closed their eyes And were fast asleep before the sun could rise And Jennifer slept in her little bed With dreams of a rabbit in her little head Copyright Tom Paxton recorded by Tom Paxton MC
