Spider and Rabbit Go to the Dance

Spider and Rabbit were going to the dance but the river was high; Rabbit couldn't cross.
"I'll spin a web," said Spider, and he spun from one side to the other. But when Rabbit was crossing, Spider cut the web, and Rabbit fell in the water.
Spider ran to the dance, and the ladies admired his fine clothes and elegant dancing.
Rabbit showed up later, soaked and barely alive. He got out his fiddle and sang, "Hear what Spider did do to me, ooooooh, what Spider did do!"
The ladies all comforted Rabbit with kisses and told Spider, "Go away!"
