“Who Put Crackers In My Soup?”

Our children may be too young to remember Shirley Temple but they’re never too young to learn one of her iconic songs. Use our “How to Sign Cracker” video to teach him/her the sign for cracker then use the sign while learning “Animal Crackers in My Soup”

Here are the lyrics incase your Shirley Temple memory bank is a little rusty:

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!
