In a Cabin in the Woods

Written by  Unknown | Copyright Unknown

In a cabin in the woods
Little man by the window stood
Saw a rabbit hopping by
Knocking at his door
(Alternate: "Frightened as can be")
"Help me, help me, help", he said
Or the hunter will shoot me dead
Little rabbit come inside
Safely you'll abide

Second verse

Ittybitty cabin in the woods
Ittybitty man by the window stood
Saw an ittybitty rabbit hopping by
Frightened as can be
"Help me, help me, help!" he said
'Fore the hunter shoots me dead
Ittybitty rabbit come inside
Safely to abide

Third verse

Great big cabin in the woods
Great big man by the window stood
Saw a great big rabbit hopping by,
Frightened as can be
"Help me, help me, help!" he said
'Fore the hunter shoots me dead
Great big rabbit come inside
Safely to abide


Hand motions for the song
For the first verse, sing it in a normal voice and make a cabin shape with your fingers, then a bunny hopping (index and second finger form the ears over your fist), then hug your chest and shake (for the frightened part), throw up arms for each "help me!", then make a gun with your hands for the hunter, then pet your hand for the safely to abide part. 

On the second verse use a squeaky voice and the same motions, except make them much smaller...such as, instead of petting your hand, use one finger to pet another finger. 

On the third verse use your deepest, loudest voice and make all the motions bigger; i.e. instead of making the bunny with your fingers, pretend you're actually a giant rabbit hopping around, etc.
