[Bugs slowly takes off his disguise. While the jukebox plays "Skip to My Lou", Bugs starts fiddling a violin and unplugs the jukebox. While singing, Bugs leading Curt and Pumpkinhead Martin outside with a musical voice]
Bugs Bunny: [singing]
♪ Promenade across the floor, sashay right on out the door, ♪
♪ Out the door and into the glade, and everybody promenade. ♪
♪ Step right up, you're doin' fine; I'll pull your beard, you pull mine; ♪
♪ Yank it again like you did before, break it up with a tug of war. ♪
♪ Now into the creek and fish for the trout, dive right in and flap about; ♪
♪ Trout, trout, pretty little trout; one more splash and come right out. ♪
♪ Shake like a hound dog, shake again, wallow around in the old pigpen, ♪
♪ Wallow some more, you all know how; roll around like an old fat sow. ♪
♪ Allemande left with your left hand, follow through with a right and left brand; ♪
♪ Now lead your partner, the dirty old thing; follow through with an elbow swing. ♪
♪ Grab a fence post hold it tight, whomp your partner with all your might; ♪
♪ Hit him in the shin, hit him in the head; hit him again, the critter ain't dead. ♪
♪ Whomp him low and whomp him high, stick your finger in his eye. ♪
♪ Pretty little rhythm, pretty little sound; bang your heads against the ground. ♪
♪ Promenade all around the room, promenade like a bride and groom. ♪
♪ Open up the door and step right in, close the door and into a spin. ♪
♪ Whirl, whirl, twist and twirl, jump all around like a flying squirrel. ♪
♪ Now, don't you cuss and don't you swear, just come right out and form a square. ♪
♪ Now right hand over and left hand under, both join hands and run like thunder; ♪
♪ Over the hill and over the dale, duck your head and lift your tail. ♪
♪ Don't you stray and don't you roam, turn around and promenade home. ♪
♪ Corn in the crib and wheat in the sack, turn your partner and promenade back. ♪
[The Martin brothers grab their hands and promenaded to a cliff which they both fell]
Bugs Bunny: [in a normal voice] And now you're home, bow to your partner. Bow to the gent across the hall. [the Martin brothers weakly shook their hands after their deep fall and lay across a small creek where they landed] And that is all. [concludes the musical with a five second musical fiddle outro. Then the closing credits start]
