Jiminy Cricket got lost in the thicket when Thumper neglected to say he would.
Supposed he should find him cause that?d be so kind but no conscience to say that he should.
Running away towards the prairie to stay, the rabbit could do as he pleased.
With no conscience around there was trouble in town and the damage could go on with ease.
So this is the story of moments of glory where Thumper could do as he pleased.
Searching for honeys to hump them like bunnies, he gets down on his knees and says,
I could do better things if I wanted to, but lost in my selfishness, is you.
And I lost my conscience though I wanted to, but he?ll be coming back.
So Jiminy Cricket, he paid for a ticket deep, dark, inside of the wood.
Now with a rack and with Jim on his back, Bambi ran as fast as he could, and then he said,
I could do better things if I wanted to, but you?ve done me favors, and I owe a few.
Thank you little Jiminy, I appreciate you. So I?ll bring you back.
So Jiminy Cricket bound back from the thicket, found Thumper bleeding and dead.
The sound of the thunder, the gun of a hunter. He damned him to hell, and then he said,
I could do better things if I wanted to, but it?s hunting season and I need some food.
Thank you little Jiminy, I appreciate you. So I?ll bring you back. And the rabbit gets the sack.
