Our Brownie troop performed this musical version for the Children's Guardian Home in 1965 or 1966. My mother arranged the piano accompaniment. I'm glad to discover that these songs are not figments of my imagination.

I would love a cassette tape / cd or way of downloading the songs from Peter Rabbit...I'm trying to arrange a surprise for my younger sister, as we used to listen to these in the 1970s & I would sing all the songs for her...she needs cheering up & would absolutely LOVE to have this again!

If anyone could help make her dream come true,that would be incredible

Many thanks!

Pull that doggie's tail
Mommy said I shouldn't
It got mad and snapped at me
I got scared and climbed a tree

Eating all the fudge
Mommy said I should't
It's so good 'cause it's so thick
Ooops my belly, I feel sick

Go in Mommy's purse
Mommy said I shouldn't
Got the lipstick out the case
Couldn't get it off my face

Pull that doggie's tail
Mommy said I shouldn't
It got mad and snapped at me
I got scared and climbed a tree
Then I feel and hurt my toe
That's the way the story goes

CHORUS:
Things sometimes happen when you do a don't
So, when you do do a don't
Like Peter Rabbit
It becomes a happen when you don't a don't
So when you do do a don't
You won't forget it
You'll soon regret it
Don't you do a don't

Oh....my....goodness, I listened to these stories and songs as a child & sung to my own children. I still have the vinyl but haven't been able to play for years. I am still singing the tiggy winkle cup of tea song every time I make one. I have been googling the wrong thing for years to no avail but today I tried song words & this thread popped up, I read comments and as I write this I am listening to these beautifully spoken & sung stories after downloading from iTunes after inputting Beatrix Potter/Vivien Leigh. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this info, I don't know why it means so much to me but it does & so few people had this so thought I was nuts!! Mayb I am but who cares I can listen to them again x

Climbing up a tree, mommy said I shouldn't. I can do it here I go, whoops I fell and hurt my toe. Things sometimes happen when you do a don't.

Chorus: Cuz when you do, do a don't.. like Peter Rabbit, it becomes a habit, when you do a don't cuz when you do, do a don't you may regret it, you won't forget it, when you do a don't. (or you think you hafta, you're sorry afta, don't you do a don't)

Eating all the fudge, mommy said I couldn't. It taste good cuz it's so thick, oops my belly I feel sick. Things sometimes happen when you do a don't.

Chorus:

Open mommies drawers, mommy said I shouldn't, took me out right from my place, couldn't get it off my face. Things sometimes happen, when you do a don't.

Chorus:

Pull that doggies tale, mommy said I shouldn't. It got mad and snapped at me, then I went a climbed a tree, then I fell and hurt my toe, that's the way this story goes. Things sometimes happen when you do a don't.

Further to my last post, I've just seen chelseachick1905's link to the David Croft site, where you can play the full recordings of all the Vivian Leigh Beatrix Potter. But I can't make out one of the words in the recording of Here's my Sitting and Thinking Place. These are the lyrics with the word I can't make out denoted by question marks - any ideas?

Here's my sitting and thinking place,
Hidden at the bottom of the hill;
Here I can wonder any time of day,
Thinking of this and that,
With the hen and the robin and the dear old cat.

Here's my sitting and thinking place,
Everything is beautifully still;
No one to ???? all my thoughts away.
They're welcome to have a chat,
With the hen and the robin and the dear old cat.

My wife has just retired after 27 years of child-minding, and we started going through all the equipment we had collected during those years. Amongst the things we found was the LP 'The Beatrix Potter Stories - 1', which are The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies and The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle. I've not played it but it looks reasonable, and the sleeve is quite good apart from some child having underlined all the titles, without a ruler.
If anyone would like it and sends me their address they can have it for the cost of the postage, first come first served.

That song is from The Floppy Bunnies story and I believe it is sung by Peter rabbit or Benjamin Bunny or both at different times. If you haven't already done so, download the files from scott's message and you will find it on track 4.

Thank you so much for the files. I have been looking for these stories and songs for years. I had Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, the floppy bunnies and Ms. Tiggywinkle on cassette when I was a kid. My sister and I listened to them for hours and sang along to the songs. Now I have the songs for a whole new generation and can't wait to share them with my sister again :)

Does anyone remember the song -

follow your heart,
follow it blindly,
and it will take you
on a journey to a star,
a million, million miles
need not seem very far,
so follow your heart,
and there you are.

I grew up listening to Peter Rabbit tales and for years now this song keeps on popping into my head. Where can I find the full song lyrics as I'm sure I have remembered parts wrong and I'm sure it must have been longer than that??
Also, does anyone know who sang it?

Thanks everyone x

Why do I do it?
What can it be?
There's naughtiness in everyone
But twice as much in me
I'd give the world if only I could,
Now and again, be good.

Why do I do it?
Am I to blame?
The others can be naughty
But it never seems the same.
No one believes I'd like to be good
Never the less I would

I think a halo would suit me,
Dangling over my head.
When they behold me,
They wouldn't scold me,
They'd say well done instead...

Why do I do it?
What is the cure?
My brothers and my sisters find it easy I am sure
That's how I've been ever since I begun
Why do I do it?
Why do I do it?
Why do I do it?
BECAUSE IT'S FUN!!!

My wife grew up on these, and so did our own kids!

I digitized the six tales I had on vinyl, and cleaned them up (they now sound very good). I then found a seventh story (Johnny Town-Mouse) on the web.

Finally, I joined them all together into a single audiobook, complete with artwork and chapter markings for each of the seven stories.

These recordings deserve to live on! Here's my audiobook version:

Peter Rabbit Stories, narrated by Vivien Leigh (41 MB)
