Easter Songs  

1. Easter’s Coming…Dance! Do the Bunny Pokey!

Sung to: “Hokey Pokey”

You put your bunny ears in

(Place hands on head to make ears)

You put your bunny ears out.

You put your bunny ears in.

And you shake them all about.

You do the Bunny Pokey

And hop yourself around,

That’s what it’s all about!

Additional verses:

You put your bunny nose in…

You put your bunny tail in…

You put your bunny paws in…

2. Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Here comes Peter Cottontail

Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,

Hippity hoppity,

Easter’s on its way

Bringin’ ev’ry girl and boy

A basketful 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

Look at him hop and listen to him say,

“Try to do the things you should”

Maybe if you’re extra good

He’ll roll lots of Easter eggs your way

You’ll wake up on Easter morning

And you’ll know that he was there

When you find those choc’late bunnies That he’s hiding ev’rywhere, Oh!

Here’ comes Peter Cottontail

Hoppin’ down the bunny trail

Hippity hoppity

Happy Easter Day.

3. Hot Cross Buns

Hot cross buns!

Hot cross buns!

One a penny, two a penny,

Hot cross buns!

If you have no daughters

Give them to your sons

One a penny, two a penny,

Hot cross buns.

4. I Love Eggs

Sing to the tune of Frere Jacques

I love eggs, I love eggs…

Yum, yum, yum, in my tum.

Scrambled, boiled, or fried…

Any way I’ve tried.

Yum, yum, yum…

yum, yum, yum.

5. Five Baby Bunnies (Finger Play)

Five baby bunnies hopping out to play,

Hopping in the forest on Easter Day. (Move fingers in a hopping motion)

The first baby bunny carried his new cane,

He twirled it as he came hopping down the lane.(Hold up one finger as the cane–and twirl it in the air)

The second baby bunny came to the river’s brink,

Tasted the cool water and took a long, long drink. (Bending over, do a drinking motion)

The third baby bunny tied her bonnet so new,

Under her chin, a bow of pink, white, and blue. (Tie a bow under your chin)

The fourth baby bunny skipped down the shady lane,

He opened his umbrella just in case of rain. (Open a pretend umbrella)

The fifth baby bunny said, Look what I see!

Lots and lots of colored eggs hiding near the tree! (Put hands together to simulate a ‘binocular” and look peer through them to see the eggs!)

6. Easter Parade

In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,

You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade.

I’ll be all in clover and when they look you over,

I’ll be the proudest fellow in the Easter Parade.

On the avenue, Fifth Avenue, the photographers will snap us,

And you’ll find that you’re in the rotogravure.

Oh, I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet,

And of the girl I’m taking to the Easter Parade.

Written by Irving Berlin
