A house should have a cookie jar,
for when it's half past three
And children hurry home from school
as hungry as can be.
There's nothing quite so splendid
as spicy, fluffy ginger cakes and
sweet milk in a cup.
A house should have a mother
waiting with a hug
No matter what a boy brings home --
a puppy or a bug.
For children only loiter
When the bell begins to ring
If there's no one home to greet them
with a cookie and a kiss.
