Daddy and Mother dine later in state, With Mary to cook for them, Susan to wait; But they don't have nearly as much fun as I, Who eat in the kitchen with Nurse standing by; And Daddy once said, he would like to be me, Having cocoa and animals once more for tea! [unsure whether this is another verse or the chorus] Verse 1Animal crackers and cocoa to drink, That is the finest of suppers, I think; When I'm grown up and can have what I please, I think I shall always insist upon these. What do you choose 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 that I love most!
