The Easter Bunny Always Sleeps is a musical number from the 1971 Rankin/Bass Easter special, Here Comes Peter Cottontail.


Every tulip that needs tending
Will get a proper bending
And jellybeans will rot upon their heaps
All the hens who are expecting
Will get no more protecting
For in spring, the Easter Bunny always sleeps
And from this time forward,
All Easter eggs shall be colored
The shade of mud and new concrete
Instead of chocolate bunnies and chicks,
I commission the candy sculptors
To make tarantulas and octopuses
And I hereby declare
An end to Easter bonnets
From now on, there will only be Easter galoshes
I need lots of peace and quiet
And Easter won't deny it
Every spring, the Easter Bunny always sleeps!
