Little Peter Rabbit


Children will love to sing and dance
along with this fun Animal song!

Lyrics

Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose.
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose.
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose so
he flipped it and he flopped it
but it wouldn't go away.

CHORUS
Poor little Peter Rabbit,
poor little Peter Rabbit,
poor little Peter Rabbit,
so he flipped it and he flopped it
but it wouldn't go away.

Little Peter Rabbit had a butterfly on his chin (x3)
so he shooed it and he shooed it
but it wouldn't go away

CHORUS

Little Peter Rabbit had a spider on his knee (x3)
so he flicked it and he flicked it
but it wouldn't go away.

CHORUS

Little Peter Rabbit had an elephant on his toe (x3)
so he pushed it and he pushed it
but it wouldn't go away.
