The words refer to unusual sounds.  The sentences may be from a children's song. 

 

"Splat", for example, might be the sound of a bug hitting a windshield, an egg falling on the floor.  Maybe "hiccup"  is the sound of a stew,  slowing cooking on the  stove.  Firewood "pops" from time to time.  A child drinking from a straw may make "slurping" sounds.
