Rabbit, Rabbit, in the moon,
You must login to vote
do you see me as I see you?
When all the candles have burnt out
and all the people here about
have tak'n to bed in shroud of night
there is one room still filled with light
and that is mine, oh, Rabbit bright.
I sit alone, each night the same,
my face resting on window pane
for in darkness so I dream
and upon my waking scream
every time I rest my head
the dreams of shadows, darkness, dread
leave me awake, as I have said.
Rabbit Rabbit in the moon,
you comfort me, do I help you?
You face darkness every night
trapped up in that ball of light
and never do you seem to fear
the inky black that you dwell near
even now the shadows creep
and into my bedroom seep
I shut my eyes and turn away,
but you glow and steadfast stay
So tell me, Rabbit, burning bright
shall I move the glass tonight,
unfetter windows I have locked tight?
I will, I push upon the frame
so no more will shadows game
and toy with me when it is dark
and make me wake before the lark.
Oh, Rabbit, Rabbit in the moon,
you see me as I see you
the night breeze through the window comes
and all my fears are faced and calm’d
So now my dreams and sleep are whole
for you have taught me to be bold
and open’d the windows of my soul.
For I'm a rover
I'm a rover of high degree.
An' when I'm drinkin'
I'm always thinkin'
of how to gain my Love's company
