Kindergarten Music: Little Bunny Foo Foo



While living on 2 1/2 acres in a rural location, I'm always amazed at seeing these fuzzy animals, the cottontail bunny around here. Their destination is always running towards a bush or under a log. Nothing frightens them more than the sound of my grand children's voices. They sleep nearby and I've spotted them in the wee early morning hours or at dusk before the coyotes come out at night. Here's a photo of one of our local bunnies.

About The Song


Little Bunny Foo Foo is a children's poem, involving a rabbit harassing a population of field mice. The rabbit is scolded and eventually punished by a fairy. Like many traditional folk songs, there are multiple versions with differing variations. It is also known under the alternative name Little Rabbit Foo Foo; "Foo Foo" is sometimes spelled as "Fu Fu". The poem is sung to the tune of Down By The Station (1948), and melodically similar to the popular French Canadian children's song Alouette (1879).
