Once Mother said "My little pet
You ought to learn your alphabet!"
So in my soup I used to get
All the letters of the alphabet I learned them all from A to Z
And now my Mother's giving me
 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 Lions 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!
 Animal crackers in my soup
Do funny things to me
They make me think my neighborhood Is a big menagerie 
For instance, there's our Janitor His name is Mr. Klein And when he hollers at us kids
He reminds me of a lion

The grocer is so big and fat
He has a big mustache He looks just like a walrus Just before he takes a splash!
