Song: Big Brown Hare
Sung to the tune of "Oh, Suzanna!"
Step 1
"Big Brown Hare"

Way out on the prairie
Underneath a starry sky,
The big, brown hare is listening
To coyotes as they cry.


The big, brown hare
Has two long ears
To catch the slightest sound—
Like the footsteps of coyote
Falling softly on the ground.


Jump, big, brown hare,
If a coyote comes your way.
Your legs are made for leaping,
So hop up and dash away.


- Jennifer Bové
