Thread Name: Little Bunny Foo Foo - words?
Subject: RE: Little Bunny Foo Foo - words?
Oral tradition obviously has huge play here.

I seem to remember Cilla Fisher and Artie Tresize doing it at Trowbridge Village Pump Festival nearly half my life-time ago.

As best I recall it went like this :-

[sung]
Little bunny Foo Foo
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bopping them on the head

(replace "ing" with "in'" if it suits your diction :-)

[spoken (in a "Listen With Mother" voice)]
Down came the Good Fairy and she said

[sung]
Little bunny Foo Foo,
I don't want to see you (again, use "wanna" if it suits)
Scooping up the field mice,
and bopping them on the head.

[spoken]
Now I'll give you 3 chances and if you don't behave I'll turn you into a goon.

Repeat counting down 2 chances, 1 chance ("Now you've got one more chance...).

Last time :-

[sung]
Little bunny Foo Foo
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bopping them on the head

[spoken]
Down came the Good Fairy and she said

[sung]
Little bunny Foo Foo,
I didn't want to see you
Scooping up the field mice,
and bopping them on the head.

[spoken]
Now you've had your 3 chances so I'm going to turn you into a goon.

And she did and the moral is "Hare today, goon tomorrow"...
