Thread Name: 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean?
Subject: RE: 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean?
The hare, when retiring for the night or on the escape, makes various 'manoeuvres', one of which is to suddenly make a long leap sideways off the course, to distract the tracer or the pursuer.
I read in the context that the singer is encouraging 'the innocent hare' to make one!
