The Lyrics

A sentimental powder-puff tale of a rabbit habit. For the record, I've changed the last (repeated first) verse to a final chorus, for narrative reasons. It shouldn't cause any confusion.
BUNNY

See the grass, how long it's grown
But then, it hasn't been too long
She grazed on it
I laughed at her long floppy ears
Fed her on asparagus spears,
'Twas such a hit

From 'Fuzzy Friends' pet store you came
And I ran home, thought up your name
It seemed so right
Came runnin' in all excited
Slipped and almost dropped you down
And we played all that night

She was cute, a real sweetheart,
Kinda dumb and … not so smart
And I loved her so
I surprised her with some lettuce
Cos and iceberg and some cresses
Two years ago

And it would sure bamboozle her
When I came in from school so late
'Cause I would know
For her supper she'd be dyin'
All the groceries she'd be tryin'
'Fore I said so

And Bunny, I miss you
You made me feel good
May the Great Hare be with you
In Paradise Wood

What great times we would have had
If it wasn't for my Dad
Pain in the neck
Needed one more six-pack, he
Went to the garage with the key
'Back in a sec!'

Ignition, jammed it in reverse
Checked around for Mama's purse
Released the clutch
Then a sickening crunch - and woe!
How on earth was he to know?
She'd … left her hutch

And Bunny, I miss you
Up in Paradise Wood
And though I'd like to kiss you
Those buck teeth - never could

Next day school was such a drag
Shuffled home and dumped my bag
Mum said 'Surprise for you!
Thought that you might like a treat
But dammit, I was out of meat
So - rabbit stew!'

Tears of joy rolled down my face
We bowed our heads and said a grace
Then ate her up
Spring potatoes, aubergines
Tender Bunny, onion greens
On we did sup

And Bunny, delish, you
You sure tasted good
Much better than fish, you
Satisfy us - you could!

You can Callmelennie, but that was the SECOND best rabbit themed parody I've seen here at Amiright; right behind my own "Lennie And His Pets" .... (I really am an idiot ;-D)

That's sick -- and yet, Glenn Close might approve.
AFW - October 24, 2012 - Report this comment
This song is tricky to rework...good job ...don't know about eating rabbit..maybe with some wine and fava beans

A great parody of one of the most insipid pop songs ever.
Lifeliver - October 25, 2012 - Report this comment
Thanks for comments, all. The satisfying aspect of this for me was not so much the Hannibalesque humor but control over and pacing of the narrative.

Callmelennie - Thanks for dropping in and directing me to your intriguing rodentiae.

Michael - Well, I approve of Glenn Close. I don't think I've ever seen an actress enjoy herself so much as she did in her portrayal of Cruella De Ville.

AFW - thanks mate. The lines aren't so tricky, but for this song I think finding a suitable vehicle is.

JB - The OS certainly was insipid, the very paragon of maudlin. Yet it sold millions all over the world. Strangely, although I couldn't stand it back in the day, I don't mind it so much now. Having experienced (and lost) a loving marriage, it tugs a heartstring here and there with its attention to the silly details that you recall in a relationship that mean nothing to anyone else. Also, I think Bobby Goldsboro's voice is somewhat underestimated outside country-shmaltz circles.

Finally, let it be known that I love animals, and I don't mean for supper. I also love black humor.

Groan! Extra credit fro the clutch/hutch rhyme (groan again!) ;D

They weren't 'crappy pun' groans, were they? Would you like to know which parts of this are autobiographical?
Meriadoc - October 27, 2012 - Report this comment
Nope, the groans were for running over and eating the rabbit - heh heh. Crappy puns are always fun! As for autobiographical - I'm afraid to ask.... :O

I wonder how much autobiography goes into parodies - bits here, bits there...? I can think of a couple of ours right of the top of my head that had some bits of icky autobiography in it. ;)

@ Meriadoc: Since you were wondering ... I've eaten rabbit stew. As Crocodile Dundee would have said 'It tastes like s**t but you can eat it', but I think that verdict is more a reflection of my mother's cooking. In my youth rabbit plagues ravaged Australia, so wild rabbit was not an uncommon item on the thrifty country household's menu.

Apart from frequent and unavoidable roadkill, I've never actually killed a rabbit in cold blood, but I did run over our cat Wacka (not for the sake of a six-pack though). I did everything I could for him, but unfortunately he didn't make it. I once bought my kid sister a pet rabbit at a market. I can't remember what happened to him, but I don't think he lasted very long.

I occasionally had to rescue rabbits from the cat (different one, Wacka's mother Betty Boop). She would drag fear-paralysed victims twice her size along the road, sometimes 100-200 metres. She used to store them live in the toilet until she was ready to fulfil her 'Plains of the Serengeti' fantasies. Our fault - we used to watch a lot of wildlife documentaries in those days. So you're right about the damage of too much TV. Dogs had more noble role models like Lassie and Rin Tin Tin.
