A simple, rhyming story about some baby rabbits playing so far away from home that they cannot hear their mother calling them in.
When they finally arrive home, they find someone else has eaten their tea.
Five little bunnies were playing in the sun;
Those little baby bunnies were having so much fun,
Playing "Tig, you're it" and "Foxy can't catch me."
That all those little bunnies forgot about their tea.
Mrs Bunny called to them, but it was all in vain;
She waited just a little while, then she called again.
Mrs Clucky chicken called around for tea,
Saying, "Now don't you worry, there's all the more for me!"
In came Mr Bunny, he'd worked hard all day;
He sent old Mrs Clucky gently on her way.
Bringing in the bunnies, he told them to be good;
When they sat down to eat their tea, they found they had no food.
Mrs Bunny said to them. "When you were out of sight,
Clucky hen ate all your food and it serves you right."
Mr Bunny laughed and said. "That will teach you all,
To come and get your tea when you hear your mother call!"
Mrs Bunny felt quite sad at all the tears they shed;
She gave them all a carrot each and sent them off to bed.
