Little Cabin in the wood
Little old man at the window stood,
Saw a rabbit hopping by
knocking at his door.
Help me, help me, he said,
Before the huntsman shoots me dead.
Come, little rabbit, come inside,
Safely we will hide.
cabin – draw shape of cabin in air
little old man at the window stood – hold hands up to eyes like binoculars looking out window
rabbit hopping by – hold hand in “peace” sign with two fingers extended to look like rabbit ears, and move hand from one side to the other in “hopping” motion
knocking at his door- Boom-Boom-Boom!!
help me, help me – throw arms up in air
shoots me dead – clap one hand against the other
come little rabbit – “come here” gesture with finger
happy we will be – stroke one hand with the other
with each repeat replace a line of the song with the appropriate action until no words are sung.
