The Rabbit and the Fox 20 line Ballad

~~ The Rabbit and the Fox ~~ 20 line Ballad The Rabbit and the Fox The Rabbit and the Fox are here go down south, to Australia They have a bounty on the Fox Bring in his skin they’ll pay ya Myxameatosis germ warfare (first ever) Just for the Bagman's bunny (our ww1 war crazed soldiers lived on rabbit in solitude) Old Rabbit got mattry eyed It really wasn’t funny Great depression in the 20s We lived on lovely rabbit skins made the Slouch hat Our soldiers wear, our habit (fur felt made the hat) The master took the Rabbit (Squatters said plague) No more free feeds for us So we started eating of his sheep Become a bit nonplussed They brought another virus out To kill off outlaw rabbit But bunny still gets about The Fox your hens will have it Don Johnson
