"Rabbit" is a song by Chas & Dave from the album Don't Give a Monkey's, which was released as a single on 23 November 1980 and entered the UK Singles Chart at #66.[1] The song stayed in the charts for 8 weeks and peaked at number #8 on 17 January 1981.

The title comes from the Cockney rhyming slang "rabbit and pork" meaning "talk".[2] The song is about a relationship between a man and a woman, in which the man expresses his love for his girlfriend, but complains that she will not stop talking or, "rabbiting".

The song was re-issued in 2013 as part of Record Store Day on rabbit-shaped vinyl.
