They also play The Rabbit of Seville with one of my favorite lines.."There, you're nice and clean, although your face looks like it has gone through a machine"...hmm, maybe I'll request it now...

RABBIT OF SEVILLE
(Jones-1950)
How do??
Welcome to my shop, let me cut your mop, let me shave your crop
Daintily, daintily
Hey you!!
Don't look so perplexed, why must you be vexed, can't you see you're next
Yes you're next, you're so next
How about a nice close shave
Teach your whiskers to behave
Lots of lather lots of soap
Please hold still don't be a dope
Now we're ready for the scraping
There's no use to try escaping
Yell & scream & rant & rave
It's no use you need a shave
(oh ouch ouch oh ouch oh oh ouch)
There, you're nice and clean
Although you're face looks like it might have gone through a machine
Oh, wait until I get that rabbit
What would you want with a rabbit
Can't you see that I'm much sweeter
I'm your little senorita
You're my type of guy
Let me straighten your tie
And I shall dance for you
Jamie

thanks Jamie!
although the way Bugs says it, one line is more like:
"I'm yer little Sen-your-ee-ter"

and of course, it's 'Wabbit' coming from Elmer...
