The Rabbit Trappers Song 1. Oh, my traps are all a-jangle, At an easy swinging tangle, I'm setting in a circle Keeping round a fringe of trees; Although I'm mud and gory spattered, And my clobber's torn and tattered I'm as carefree as the bunnies Till they fall for one of these. 2. Oh, I'm under no man's orders And I recognise no borders, There's a welcome everywhere for me And my old dungarees; I'm a _____ rabbit trapper, And a canny bunny snapper, And I whistle through the bushland, Though I'm wet up to the knees. 3. While you guys are courting tabbies, I'm out among the rabbies, I can hear them bucking, squealing, Oh, a dozen traps ahead, And again while you are flirting At the last trap I am certain To be bagging up my bunnies, Keeping tally as I tread. So Ginger make the railway early, There's a shy and dinkum girlie Let's me juggle with the cream cans As she write cheques out for me. RG Apr98
