Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity', Easter's on its way

Bringin' every girl and boy
Baskets full of Easter joy
Things to make your Easter bright and gay

He's got jelly beans for Tommy
Colored eggs for sister Sue
There's an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet too

Oh! Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity, happy Easter Day

- - - -

Never saw you look quite so pretty before
Never saw you dressed quite so lovely what's more
I could hardly wait to keep our date this lovely Easter morning
And my heart beat fast as I came through the door

In your Easter Bonnet, with all the frills upon it
You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade

- - -

...yep, Easter's on it's WAY!!!
