Lyrics

Original Version

Mr. Nezzer:

The bunny.

The bunny.

Whoa! I love the bunny!

I don't love my mom or my dad,

Just the bunny!

The bunny.

The bunny.

Yeah! I love the bunny!

I gave everything that I had

For the bunny!

I don't want no health food

When it's time to feed.

A big bag o' bunnies

Is all that I need!

I don't want no buddies

To come out and play.

I'll sit on my sofa;

Eat bunnies all day!

I won't go to church,

And I won't go to school!

That stuff is for sissies,

But bunnies are cool!!

Backup Singers:

I don't want no pickles; I don't want no honey!

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny!

I don't want a tissue when my nose is runny;

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny!

I don't wanna' tell ya' a joke that is funny;

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny!

I don't wanna' play on a day that is sunny;

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny! (girls repeat under Nezzer)

Mr. Nezzer:

The bunny.

The bunny.

Whoa! I love the bunny!

I don't love my mom or my dad,

Just the bunny!

The bunny.

The bunny.

Yeah! I love the bunny!

I gave everything that I had…

For the bunny!

Current Version

Mr. Nezzer:

The bunny.

The bunny.

Whoa! I love the bunny!

I don't love my soup or my bread,

Just the bunny!

The bunny.

The bunny.

Yeah! I love the bunny!

I gave everything that I had

For the bunny!

I don't want no health food

When it's time to feed.

A big bag o' bunnies

Is all that I need!

I don't want no buddies

To come out and play.

I'll sit on my sofa;

Eat bunnies all day!

I won't eat no beans,

And I won't eat tofu!

That stuff is for sissies,

But bunnies are cool!!

Backup Singers:

I don't want no pickles; I don't want no honey!

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny!

I don't want a tissue when my nose is runny;

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny!

I don't wanna' tell ya' a joke that is funny;

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny!

I don't wanna' play on a day that is sunny;

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny! (girls repeat under Nezzer)

Mr. Nezzer:

The bunny.

The bunny.

Whoa! I love the bunny!

I don't love my soup or my bread,

Just the bunny!

The bunny.

The bunny.

Yeah! I love the bunny!

I gave everything that I had…

For the bunny!

New and Improved Version

Bob: Now kids, we're going to along to one of my favorite songs — The Bunny Song.

Jean-Claude: Monsier Bob, we're not supposed to sing the Bunny Song.

Bob: Oh! Thank you for pointing that out, Jean-Claude. But this is the New and Improved Bunny Song. This is the one we're supposed to sing.

Jean-Claude: I see.

Mr. Nezzer:

The bunny.

The bunny.

Whoa! I ate the bunny!

I didn't eat my soup or my bread,

Just the bunny!

The bunny.

The bunny.

Oh! I love the bunny!

But now I feel sick in the head

From the bunny!

I didn't eat my salad,

I didn't eat my steak!

I had too much candy!

Got a tummy ache!

I need to eat good food

To help me to grow.

I'll obey my momma

'Cuz she loves me so!

Yeah, I'll go to church,

And I'll go to school.

That stuff is important,

And I ain't no fool!!

Backup Singers:

I don't want no pickles; I don't want no honey!

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny!

I don't want a tissue when my nose is runny;

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny!

I don't wanna' tell ya' a joke that is funny;

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny!

I don't wanna' play on a day that is sunny;

I just want a plate and a fork and a bunny! (girls repeat under Nezzer)

Mr. Nezzer: (spoken over section above) No, no, no, no, girls! No, that's wrong! I learned my lesson. Oh! You're gonna' get tummy aches... Now, you stop singing that stuff! Listen here, girls. Oh no…!

The bunny.

The bunny.

Whoa! I ate the bunny!

I didn't eat my soup or my bread,

Just the bunny!

The bunny.

The bunny.

Oh! I love the bunny!

But now I feel sick in the head…

From the bunny!

Reprise

Mr. Nezzer:

I've tried to be patient,

I've tried to be kind.

Can you tell me what the trouble is?

Am I losing my mind?

Now, I didn't ask for much…

Just one simple, little thing.

Didn't ask ya' to part the waters;

I just wanted to hear ya' sing!

I gave ya' hats! I gave ya' ties!

I letcha' eat my bunnies!

And this is how you repay me?

C'mon boys! D'ya think that's funny?

Well, now at last, your fate is sealed!

You're paying for your crime!

But to show you what kind of guy I am,

I'll ask you one more time…

(spoken) Will you or will you not sing the song?

Fun Facts

  • This song is infamous for being the center of a long-term controversy upon Rack, Shack & Benny's initial release. According to Phil Vischer, this song was originally meant to be bad so kids wouldn't sing it. However, soon after the episode's release, parents began lashing out at Big Idea with letters alleging their children had been singing the song. Thus, the following changes were made:
    1. A "new and improved" version that kids can sing for their first sing along video was written. This resulted in letters from fans saying they loved the original version of the song best, to which Phil Vischer said "You can't please all the people all the time".
    2. The lyrics for the song on the Rack, Shack & Benny episode were rewritten for future releases.
  • A little snippet of this can be heard in Twas The Night Before Easter.
  • Despite the letters that the New and Improved version got, it is the version heard in most VeggieTales albums that The Bunny Song's featured in, most notably VeggieTales Greatest Hits and 25 Favorite Silly Songs.
  • The current version of this song is featured on Silly Little Thing Called Love.
