Jack Rabbit

Jack Rabbit walked the French Quarter...
Searching for his Peter Cottontail...
Jack always knew on which corner to stand
To sniff out Peter’s Cottontail trail...

As soon as Peter was close by...
Jack would immediately start to close in...
He would offer Peter a Marlboro...
Accompanied by a wink and a grin...

But Peter would always act uninterested...
Thinking Jack was nothing more than a flirt...
Now Jack had other things in mind...
He wanted to get Peter down in the dirt...

He would follow Peter across the street...
Often going from bar to bar...
He would often hide from Peter...
Never allowing him to get too far...

But Peter would keep Jack running...
He never allowed himself to get caught...
He would always stay one step ahead of Jack...
Until he lost him, or so he thought...

That Jack Rabbit, he was a sly one...
He had rabbit tricks rolled up in his sleeve...
One night, he cornered poor Peter...
And refused to let Peter leave...

Peter advised Jack to move aside...
Or a battle would quickly ensue...
Jack offered Peter a wink and a grin...
“I just want to get to know you!”

Peter shouted “Jack, stop all that wishful thinking!
You’ve got zero chance in hell!”
You’re not my type of rabbit at all!”
And besides, you have that rancid smell!”

Jack walked away all dejected...
He felt ashamed and totally alone...
But before he could say “silly rabbit”
The Energizer Bunny arrived, wearing cologne...

The two of them rallied until sunrise...
Enjoying themselves throughout the night...
So don’t limit yourself to a Cottontail...
When a Bunny can make things just right...
