Sleeping Bunnies

Lyrics

See the little bunnies sleeping till it's nearly noon
Come and let us gently wake them with a merry tune
Oh how still, are they ill, wake up soon
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop.

See the little birdy sleeping till it's nearly nine
Come and let us gently wake them from their nest of vine
Up we climb, just in time, wake up soon
Flap little birdies, flap, flap, flap
Flap little birdies, flap, flap, flap
Flap little birdies, flap, flap, flap
Flap little birdies, flap, flap, flap.

See the little alligator sleeping till it's noon
Come and let us gently wake them with a merry tune
In we creep, while the alligator sleeps, wake up soon
Snap little alligator, snap, snap, snap
Snap little alligator, snap, snap, snap
Snap little alligator, snap, snap, snap
Snap little alligator, snap, snap, snap
Then Flap little birdies, flap, flap, flap
Flap little birdies, flap, flap, flap
Flap little birdies, flap, flap, flap
Flap little birdies, flap, flap, flap
Then Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop.

Information About Sleeping Bunnies

The origin of this song is unknown, but it is quite popular among children and parents today. Not only is it a popular song, it is also a very popular nursery rhyme. It seems that it has been around since the 1950's.

This song could be a very popular morning song when children are just waking up or if they are at school, shortly after nap time or very early in the morning, perhaps before any other lessons begin.

This song can be used in helping children to learn how to tell time and to learn their numbers. In the lyrics that feature time, teachers and parents can set up a clock and show the children where the numbers on the clock are and what time is represented by each.

The children can also get in some exercise and physical activity during this song. The bunnies are said to be hopping, so during those lines, the children cane all hop together and pretend that they are bunnies.

Till its nearly noon

They're so still, Are they ill?
Wake up soon.
