Lyrics

(Folk song)

Little cabin in the wood,
Little old man by the window stood,
Saw a rabbit hopping by,
Knocking at the door.
“Help me! Help me sir!” he said,
Or the farmer will bop my head!”
“Come little rabbit, come in side,
Safely we’ll abide.”

Motions

  • Little cabin… = draw a rectangle in the air
  • Little old man… = hand on forehead like looking while keeping the sun out of his eyes
  • Knocking… = knock in the air
  • “Help me!…” = hands flash in the air (like jazz hands)
  • Or the farmer… = tap top of head
  • “Come…” = come here motion
  • Safely… = one hand “pet” the back of the other hand, which has 2 fingers up to mimic the rabbit
