Don't Be The Bunny

Album: Urinetown (2001)

Songfacts®:

  • The moral of this song is don't be the bunny, especially if the other guy has a gun and is looking to make rabbit stew. This edifying advice is given by Caldwell B. Cladwell to his daughter, and the song is performed principally by him. Thankfully, his daughter Hope has not inherited her father's ruthlessness, as might be expected of the heroine of this offbeat musical.

    Like all the other songs in the show it has music by Mark Hollman, with lyrics by Hollman and Greg Kotis. >>
