Hippety-hop
​ ​ ​​ Hippety-hop
​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​and then my little one nestles into a sunny spot
​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​to bask in the sunshine
​ ​ ​​​ ​​ ​​​ ​ ​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​ — glorious!

Sheltered under a canopy
​ ​ ​​ skies of blue and willow trees
​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​my bunny he finds secret hiding places
​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ in the garden verdant green
​ ​ ​​​ ​​ ​​​ ​ ​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​ — Will I still find you there?

I declare how I love thee
​ ​ ​​ coming hither, yon at your behest
​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​sometimes without a moment’s rest
​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​​ ​ yes, you know, I love thee so
​ ​ ​​​ ​​ ​​​ ​ ​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​​ ​ ​​​ ​ ​ — my beloved of the secret garden!
