Hippity Hoppity…Easter’s on it’s way!

The Easter Bunny is part of every Easter celebration. “Peter Cottontail” by Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins is one of the most famous Easter songs of all time. Written in 1950, the song describes how the Easter bunny brings chocolates, gifts and happiness to everyone. In honor of Easter, here are the lyrics to “Peter Cottontail”. Go ahead and start singing. I bet you won’t be able to get the song out of your head for the next day or two.

Wishing you all a hippity hoppity Easter day!

Peter Cottontail – by Steve Nelson & Jack Rollins

“Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hopping’ down the bunny trail,
Hippity, hoppity,
Easter’s on its way.

Bringing’ every girl and boy Baskets full of Easter joy,
Things to make your Easter bright and gay.
He’s got jellybeans for Tommy,
Colored eggs for sister Sue,
There’s an orchid for your Mommy
And an Easter bonnet, too.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hopping’ down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Happy Easter day.

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hopping’ down the bunny trail,
Look at him stop, and listen to him say:
“Try to do the things you should.”
Maybe if you’re extra good,
He’ll roll lots of Easter eggs your way.

You’ll wake up on Easter morning
And you’ll know that he was there
When you find those chocolate bunnies
That he’s hiding everywhere.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hopping’ down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Happy Easter day.”
