I Must Be Older Than Dirt

Nothing can make you feel older than remembering a song from your childhood that no one else remembers...and I mean no one...not even our friends on YouTube.   Believe me, I have looked (and looked and looked) to no avail but, every year at this time I sit and hum that little song to myself.  It has occurred to me that I have never asked you...so.....I'm asking, please, does anyone remember this little song

Most little bunny rabbits
have pretty little ears
that stand up at attention
for everything they hear.
But Floppy (or maybe it was Flopsie) was a rabbit
whose ears where very strange.
He had one ear up
one ear down
that's how they were arranged.

it goes on from there but I'm old and I can't remember much more of it...just bits and bobs

the chorus went

Poor Floppy
Poor Floppy
Floppy didn't have a friend at all.
Poor Floppy
Poor Floppy
Saddest little bunny of them all.

There is one Poor Floppy song on YouTube but it isn't the one I remember.
So, anyone?  Anyone at all?

  2. Sorry, can't help you with this ...

    I can tell you that I've spent the afternoon with some delightful Easter Bunnies, a.k.a. the grandchildren who were certainly enjoying the Easter Egg Hunt. LOL!.

    I hope you've had a nice Easter weekend.
    My good wishes.

    All the best Jan

  4. A very happy memory for sure, the words are vaguely familiar but can't claim that I remember it...

  5. Maybe it was made up by someone in your family?

  6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCmXyuozey8 the chorus lyrics are the same, but this is probably the one you found.

  7. Well thanks y'all......I'm beginning to wonder if I didn't just make up the lyrics myself...the one on you tube (yes Joeh, it is the same one I found) have the same tune ...maybe I just didn't like the lyrics so made up my own and over time convinced myself that was how it went.

  8. I've never heard of it either. The only bunny song I know is Peter Cottontail: "Here comes Peter Cottontail, Hopping down the bunny trail, hippity hoppity, Easter's on its way...."
