Shirley Temple Black was an American actress, singer, dancer, businesswoman and diplomat who was Hollywood’s number one box-office star from 1935 to 1938. As an adult, she was named United States ambassador to Ghana and to Czechoslovakia and also served as Chief of Protocol of the United States.
Temple began her film career in 1932 at the age of three. In 1934, she found international fame in Bright Eyes, a feature film designed specifically for her talents. She received a special Juvenile Academy Award in February 1935 for her outstanding contribution as a juvenile performer to motion pictures during 1934, and film hits such as Curly Top and Heidi followed year after year during the mid-to-late 1930s. Licensed merchandise that capitalized on her wholesome image included dolls, dishes, and clothing. Her box-office popularity waned as she reached adolescence. She appeared in a few films of varying quality in her mid-to-late teens, and retired completely from films in 1950 at the age of 22. She was the top box-office draw in Hollywood for four years in a row (1935–38) in a Motion Picture Herald poll.

“Animal Crackers in My Soup”
Lyrics/Music T.Koehler & I.Caesar/R.Henderson
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 Mothers 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 their inside me where it’s dark I walk around like Noahs Arc 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 neighbourhood 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 moustache He looks just like a Walrus Just before he takes a splash
“The Good Ship Lollipop”
Music by R. Whiting and words by S. Clare
I’ve thrown away my toys Even my drum and train. I wanna make some noise With real live aeroplanes. Some day I’m going to fly. I’ll be a pilot too. And when I do, how would you Like to be my crew… On the good ship lollipop. Its a sweet trip to a candy shop Where bon-bons play On the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay. Lemonade stands everywhere. Crackerjack bands fill the air. And there you are Happy landing on a chocolate bar. See the sugar bowl do the tootsie roll With the big bad devils food cake. If you eat too much ooh ooh You’ll awake with a tummy ache. On the good ship lollipop Its a night trip into bed you hop And dream away On the good ship lollipop.
