Suppity Sippity!

Suppity, sippity! Milk for my Pippity, Milk for my Pippity Poppity Boy: From a big jug of it Pour a full mug of it, Sip it and sup it in comfort and joy. Sippity, soppity, Bread for my Poppety, Crusty and crumby and tender and white: Now for a bowl of it! Milk for the whole of it! Sippity, suppity, morning and night.
