The bunny man in the ice cream truck gives girls & boys a cool treat.
But one wrong quip and the bunny man
will take you off your feet! Stowed in the cold turning to ice
A small debt to pay for not being so nice
The children dream of aiding the bunny man
Scooping ice cream according to plan
No at all being the wiser
Of the fudge dipped Billy Kaiser.
The bunny man is not mean or scary
Just don’t bring up what he did to Terry.
With his big eyes and long ears floppy
Crooked bucktooth smile, a hare a tad bit choppy
The music chimes and the children run
The bunny man says ‘here comes another, oh what fun’ They rush with glee into the summer heat
For their frozen mystery treat.
Billy, Tommy, Ryan, and Jill
Line up to get their fill
Vanilla swirl, chocolate sprinkle, and mint chocolate Chip With joy coming from the bunny man’s furry grip
Poor little Tommy is ready to cry
He wanted a cone but was short a dime.
‘How badly do you want it?’ The bunny man replied. Tommy pouts ‘so badly that I could just DIE’
The bunny man smirks with a devilish grin
‘Well, you’re in luck, my friend. Go around back and hop on in’ Tommy runs to back, his eyes wide with wonder
Not fully understanding of the spell he was under
The doors kick open and the dry ice mists
The bunny man’s smile suddenly twists
Snatching Tommy up rather quick
The truck speeds off, disappearing like a magic trick
The next day the bunny man comes back
Showing the kids his brand new snack
The children ranted and raved over the new flavor
Double scoops of Tutti Tommy Craver.
