Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems
Notes: words and music
by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1961 by author, 1963 by Schroder Music
People say the rabbits dance in the night time,
People say the rabbits dance in the glade.
In the daytime they play in the bramble's shade,
But in the night time they are not afraid.
I would like to see them dancing in the forest.
What a pretty thing!
Rabbits in the moonlight, dancing in a ring.
