Animal Crackers and Cocoa to drink
That is the finest of suppers, I think,
When I am grown up and can have what I please,
I think I will always insist upon these.
What do you do when you're offered a treat?
When Mother says, "what would you like best to eat?"
Is it waffles and syrup, or cinnamon toast?
It's cocoa and animals I love the most!
The kitchen's the coziest place that I know:
The kettle is singing, the stove is aglow,
And there in the twilight, how jolly to see
The cocoa and animals waiting for me.
