I’m gonna wear my bunny-suit
I’m gonna put my bunny suit on
I’m gonna wear my bunny-suit
And roll around my front yard
I’m gonna crawl and I might cry ‘neth the moon
I’m gonna carry on


You done made a fool of me
and made it look so easy
Made a big [*****]
Out of me
I’m gonna put my bunny suit on
I’m gonna carry on, I’m gonna carry on


Well I’m gonna do whatever it takes
You feel so naked when your heart brakes
It’s alright honey I know how you do
I might not be now, but one day I’ll get over you

I’m gonna wear my bunny-suit
I’m gonna put my bunny suit on
I’m gonna wear my bunny-suit
And roll around my front yard
I’m gonna crawl and I might cry ‘neth the moon
I’m gonna carry on

I’m gonna carry on, I’m gonna carry on

Maybe it's just me but I am now poking sticks into my eyes to erase the vision of you in a Playboy bunny suit shocked blush ...apart from that I enjoyed the song

I really like the concept of this song. "I'm gonna put my bunny suit on" is such an absurd line to hear under any circumstance that it caught my attention right away and got me listening for tie-ins to the bunny suit.

and though you did make reference to rolling around in the front yard and crying beneath the moon... those aren't things I normally associate with bunnies.

After being humiliated by a woman, I might want to be invisible... like Harvey, James Stewart's invisible rabbit friend

After lowering my defenses to a lover, then getting surprised by an emotional ambush, torn up like a rabbit in the jaws of a pit bull... there's imagery that could apply

Maybe before she made me look like a jack@$$, I melted in her arms like a chocolate easter rabbit sitting in a sunny window

and maybe after the rejection, I would feel the need to shed the Jack@$$ suit she dressed me in and return to a time when life was trusting, uncomplicated and unravaged... back when I still wore the bunny suit

etc etc etc... you've opened the door here to all kinds of imagery, then didn't develop it sufficiently to justify the inclusion of something as unexpected as a bunny suit.

But, don't take that as a criticism ... its more of an observation, based on my own personal expectations. I really like being blind-sided by a totally unexpected concept in a song. And Jeez... BUNNY SUIT... it doesn't get much more unexpected than that!

Hi Gruverider,

"I might not be now, but one day I’ll get over you" - but
not with your bunny suit on.
I really enjoyed that (lyrics and performance).

Lawrence,

That was fun. If someone told me it was the latest Randy Newman song, I wouldn't blink an eye...

Thank you all for giving it a listen.

I wrote it while watching the trailer for the movie "Where The Wild Things Are" I thought the boy was wearing a bunny suit (it's a wolf suit), and I thought that would be a fun line for a song.

Well, for better or worse Janice and I have exactly the sense of humor type to love this right off the bat. Maybe that's why we dig Todd Snyder and Robert Earl Keen. This fits right in their play list. ALL aspects of the production are spot on.

Thanks for letting us hear it!

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
