A rabbit bein' chased by a big, black dog Through the early mornin' fog Over the meadow and past the bog, They were runnin' The rabbit had jumped a fence or two Cause that's what rabbits like to do Big black dog had to jump 'em too They was runnin' Now this black dog had a brother 'Cept he was white as snow One looked like the other Least that's how the story go So the black dog's chasin' the rabbit down the road And he seen a familiar face he knowed He said, "Hey there white dog, what you say? Take over chasin' this rabbit, all right? Thank you, get away! Take over chasin' this rabbit Or they'll be no rabbit stew today for us." And here what the white dog say He say, "That rabbit smiled as he went by He know he got you beat, that's why. You wait here and I'll chase a while Cause I hate to see a rabbit smile." So off he go, off the white dog go. Now when that little rabbit looked around He jumped four feet off the ground He said, "That big old dog that's chasin' me Why, he's taken off his jacket and he's runnin' free He's taken off his jacket and he's catchin' me." Now there's a moral to this story For crazy rabbits with dreams of glory Any rabbit think a dog wear a jacket Should get out of the rabbit racket. One dog's brother is another dog's child And no one likes to see a rabbit smile
