In a Cabin in the Woods

In a Cabin in the Woods

In a cabin in the woods
<make house with hands over head>
L'il old man by the window stood
<old man with hand above eyes looking out>
saw a rabbit hopping by, helpless as could be
<two fingers up like rabit; make hand hop>
help me, help me help, he said
<arms waving frantically (said in high voice)>
For the hunter shoots me dead
<tommy gun motion (low voice)>
come little rabbit come with me
<beckoning motion>
happy we will always be
<cradling motion, or stomach rubbing motion>

The song is usually repeated:
the second time the first verse is hummed,
the third time the first and second verses are hummed,
and so on, until the end
