Bye O, Baby Bunting, dear, papa's in the woods so drear;
There he's gone with dot; and gun, and he'll think it lots of fun
If he only can in time for this little baby mine
Get a little rabbit skin, to wrap Baby Bunting in.
Bye O, Baby, bye Baby Bunting;
Then sleep, my little pretty one, your papa, dearest, soon will come.
Bye O, Baby, bye Baby bunting;
He'll bring a little rabbit skin to wrap the Baby Bunting in.
Bye O, Baby Bunting, dear; papa, love, will soon be here;
And he'll laugh to tell the fun, when he ran with dog and gun
After rabbit to his hole, where the little fellow stole,
Hiding there so full of fear, for your papa's coming near.-Lullaby.
Bye O, Baby Bunting, sweet, now your eyelids close in sleep;
Soon you'll lie within your bed, listless of your papa's tread,
And the baby will not see papa coming home in glee.
Holding up the rabbit akin, to wrap Baby Bunting in.-Lullaby.
