Subject: RE: Lyr Req: There once was a rabbit developed a habit
I forgot to mention, when I recited this poem, it was in 1969. I was 5! I am now 47. I recited it at a school show at Mt Torrens primary school in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia... We had to think of something to do and my Mum taught this to me (she also made me a very cute rabbit costume), she's passed away now but she learnt it at school in Sydney in the early 1940's. I probably remember it so well because I received much praise for my recital! :-) Funny how things can stick in our memory and this has been poppoing into my hyead for years and never could remember all the words. Only the first which definately went:

There once was a rabbit who developed the habbit
of twitching the end of his nose.

Now, one little bunny said, that's very funny
I'll practise in down in the Dell.

Thats all I could remember....

I LOVE Internet..... its the little things....
