Here comes Pet -ter Cot -ton -Tail, Hop -pin' down the bun -ny trail,
Hip -pi -ty hop -pin', East -er's on it's way.
Bring -in' ev -'ry girl and boy Bas -kets full of East -er joy,
Things to make your East -er bright and gay.
He's got jel -ly beans for Tom -my, Col -ored eggs for sis -ter Sue,
There's an or -chid for your Mom -my And an East -er bon -net, too.
Oh! here comes Pe -ter Cot -ton -tail, Hop -pin' down the bun -ny trail,
Hip -pi -ty hop -pi -ty, Hap -py East -er day.
