Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit (rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit)

You've got a beautiful chin 
You've got beautiful skin 
You've got a beautiful face 
You've got taste

You've got beautiful eyes 
You've got beautiful thighs
You've got a lot without a doubt 
But I'm thinking 'bout blowing you out, 'cause

You won't stop talking 
Why don't you give it a rest?
You've got more rabbit than Sainsbury's 
It's time you got it off your chest

Now you was just the type of girl to break my heart in two
I knew right off when I first clapped my eyes on you
But how was I to know you'd bend my ear holes too with your incessant talking?
You're becoming a pest

Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit (rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit)

Now you're a wonderful girl 
You've got a wonderful smell 
You've got wonderful arms 
You've got charms

You've got wonderful hair 
We make a wonderful pair
Now I don't mind having a chat
But you have to keep giving it that

Now, you won't stop talking 
Why don't you give it a rest?
You've got more rabbit than Sainsbury's 
It's time you got it off your chest

Now you was just the type of girl to break my heart in two
I knew right off when I first clapped my eyes on you
But how was I to know you'd bend my ear holes too with your incessant talking?
You're becoming a pest

Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit
Yup, yup rabbit, yup, yup, yup rabbit, bunny, rabbit, rabbit
