Ole Mister Rabbit, Your hair look brown, You 'se gwine so fas' You'se hittin' de groun\ Um-hum—um-hum.
Another variant is only slightly different:

OLE MISTER RABBIT
Ole Mister Rabbit, You Ve got a mighty habit, Of jumpin' in the garden, And eatin' up the cabbage.
This fragment, given by Miss Emilie Walter, of Charleston, South Carolina, is in the gullah dialect:
BRA' RABBIT— (OYSCHA')
"Bra' Rabbit, wa' yere da do dere?" "I da pickin' oyscha' fa* young gal. Da oyscha' bite mah finger, Da young gal tek dat fa* laugh at."
