Eight chocolate bunny rabbits

    Sat upon a shelf

And one bunny looked around

    And then thought to himself:

 

“I hope someone will buy me.

    I’m as pretty as can be.”

A customer came in the shop

    And said he wanted three.

 

Five chocolate bunny rabbits

    Sat upon a shelf

And one bunny thought of this

    And then said to himself:

 

“This little girl who’s in our shop –

     Well, will she look at me?”

“Yes, I will buy just two them”

     And this left only three.

 

So three chocolate bunny rabbits

     Sat upon that shelf.

One chocolate bunny rabbit

      Said unto himself:

 

“Oh two lovely little customers -

    Someone’s little sons."–

“We'll have a bunny each," they said -

    which left behind just one.

 

There was one bunny sat alone

     Upon his lonely shelf

And this poor little bunny said

     Sadly to himself:

 

“Is there nobody that wants me?”

    And he began to cry,

But then I said I would buy him”

   So he also said: “Goodbye”.

 

There’s an empty shelf in this shop.

     The bunnies all were sold.

But  . . .  you had one for Easter -

      Well, that’s what I was told.
