(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.”


  • 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
