Oh, eat your animal crackers 'cause my mother told me so long ago
"If you eat your animal crackers
The children in Europe won't starve anymore".
Oh I love eating ice cream,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
(I forgot the words, once, thank you)
Once I went on a diet
(That's the Freudian part, is it, when I forget it)
Once I went on a diet a carbohydrate diet ain't nice
'Cause you can't eat animal crackers
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
I wrote this song in Columbus, Missouri.
I was, had a day off, so I, I wanted to go to the country
And that wasn't very difficult because the country was
Columbus, Missouri is the country
And I walked outside my door and I saw a big cow and I said
"Oh, moo, you know, don't you, you know that I don't eat cows?"
And the cow didn't say anything except, "Mm, Melanie"
And so, and so I wrote him this song, and I wrote it really for all the cows
