Old Mister Rabbit


Old Mister Rabbit, you’ve got a mighty habit
Of jumping in the garden and eating all my cabbage.

With younger students, teach the song and “hop” with your fingers on your other arm to the beat. Later, feel free to add hopping or jumping. 🙂 Try to also add the tambourine part by clapping.

Recorder Notes: E,G,B

  • (I changed the rhythm of the last measure to allow a little more time for students to find that E and make a good sound. I also changed the melody of measure 6 to make it easier to learn quickly.)
