ANIMAL CRACKERS IN MY SOUP
Words by Ted Koehler and Irving Caesar; music by Ray Henderson, ©1935.
Sung by Shirley Temple in "Curly Top" (1935)
Animal crackers in my soup,
Monkeys and rabbits loop the loop;
Gosh, oh gee, but I have fun
Swallowing animals one by one
In every bowl of soup I see
Lion and tigers watching me;
I make 'em jump right through a hoop,
Those animal crackers in my soup.
When I get hold of the big bad wolf
I just push him under to drown;
Then I bite him in a million bits,
And I gobble him right down.
When they're inside me where it's dark,
I walk around like Noah's Ark,
I stuff my tummy, like a Goop
With animal crackers in my soup.
