Oh, eat your animal crackers 
'Cause my mother told me so long ago, 
"If you eat your animal crakers,

Hahaha hahahaha hahaha. 

Oh I love eating icecream, 
Chocolate, vanilla and butter pecan, 
But I best love animal crackers 
'Cause I love helping my fellow man. 
Yeah, I eat more crackers than anyone can 
Hahaha haha.

So, I'm gonna stay a fatty for all of my life,

But some people think that fatties are nice, yeah. 

Did you ever hear of Alice's restaurant? 
I eat at Alice's restaurant year after year. 
She makes an animal cracker pizza, ha 
And she gives animal crackers out free with the beer. 
Oh, let's give Alice a great big cheer. 
She knows the age... 
Ah, animal crackers are in this year! 
Ha ha hahaha. 
Oh, lalalalala lala lala
