- Female Customer #1: But what do you do with them?
- Easter Bunny: What can we do with them, huh?
- Elmo: You hide it!
- Easter Bunny: Yeah! And you can roll them on the White House lawn.
- Female Customer #2: Really? What else?
- Easter Bunny: What else can you do?
- You could make a nose with it, you could smell a rose with it.
- You could touch your toes with it, you could even pose with it.
- You could bake a pie with it, you could make an eye with it.
- You could name it Fred (Hi, Fred.) or smash it on your head.
- Or if you have the time and get that chance,
- You can give them tiny skirts and teach them how to dance.
- Un, deux, trois. Let can-can!
- Now don't forget who made them. (Bawk, bawk!)
