"Old Molly Hare"


           
      Refrain    
   
Old Molly Hare,
What you doing there?
   
    1. Running through the cotton
Just as fast as I can tear.
   
      Refrain    
   
2.
Eating up the apples
And a looking for a pear
   
      Refrain    
    3.

Nibbling in the garden,
Just as often as I dare.

   
      Refrain    
    4. Picking out a briar,
Sitting on a prickly pear.
   
      Refrain    
    5. Sitting on a haystack,
And a-shooting at a bear.
