The Lyrics

This here's a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue
Two young lovers with nothin' better to do
Than steal chocolate bunnies, jellybeans and peeps too
And here is what happened when they decided to cut loose

They headed down to, ooh, old El Paso
That's where pink and purple grass goes
Billy Joe stuffed his pants with Easter baskets
Bobbie Sue took the bunny and run

Go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run

Billy Mack is a detective down in Texas
He wants to know -- where'd they go, all them baskets?
He ain't gonna let those two steal the rabbit
He'll find that bunny and then he'll nab it

Bobbie Sue, whoa, whoa, she slipped away
Billy Joe caught up to her the very next day
They got the bunny, hey
You know they got away
They headed down south and they're still running today
Singin' go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run
Go on take the bunny and run

Cute idea, but 6 of the 13 non-repeated lines are verbatim from the original. Try a little bit harder next time.

I had the exact same thought as Agri: "Cute idea, but too close to the original song." You seem to have a pretty good imagination, you just need to make it work a little harder. Go on, take the advice and run.

What Agrimorfee and Michael P said. Nice pacing and rhymes with what you changed though.
