I Don't Want A Bunny Wunny

  • (Tom Paxton)

      I don't want a bunny wunny in my little row boar
      In my little row boat in the pond
      For the bunny might be crazy and he'll bite me in the throat
      In my little row boat in the pond

    President Carter got into his boat
    Wasn't in a hurry, wanted to float
    Think about the country, think about sin
    Along swum a rabbit, and it tried to climb in
    And what did Jimmy say

    Look at him swimming, look at him fly
    Ears laid back and a gleam in his eye
    Hissing through his front teeth, swimming like a seal
    If you were the President, how would you feel
    You'd prob'ly say

    President Carter saved the day
    Splashed with the paddle, rabbit swam away
    Jimmy was a hero, felt it in his bones
    Said in the words of John Paul Jones
