Here is a bunny

Here is a bunny with ears so funny (hold up index and middle fingers for ears)

And here is his hole in the ground (make a circle with the other hand)

At the first sound he hears, he pricks up his ears (extend two fingers)

And hops in the hole in the ground (fingers jump into the hole)

If you’re hoppy and you know it

If you’re hoppy and you know it, hop around

If you’re hoppy and you know it, hop around

If you’re hoppy and you know it

And you really want to show it

If you’re hoppy and you know it, hop around.

…shake your tail

…stomp your feet

…wiggle your nose

The bunny pokey

You put your right paws (hand and foot) in

you take your right paws out.

You put your right paws in,

and you shake them all about.

You do the Bunny Pokey,

and you hop all around.

That's what it's all about!

You put your left paws in....

Your put your pink nose in...

You put your cotton tail in...

You put the whole bunny in...
