The Lyrics

About time I parodied this song. Also about time, following Ernie and Bert, Elmo, Grover, the Count and the Cookie Monster, I did a parody for Oscar the Grouch. Oh yeah: In the second verse, "stew" is a verb meaning "get angry," not a noun for a multiple-ingredient food or a verb meaning "get drunk." I don't want to know what Oscar drinks.
Day after day, I am not amused.
And I wish we could get lots of pouring rain!
It gives me some mud that I like to use.
But Elmo is a pain.
Ain't it a shame?

Oh, Sesame Street, boy, it takes its toll.
So go and get lost, that should be your goal!
I'm miffed today!
Sesame Street, boy, it takes its toll.
So go and get lost, that should be your goal!
I'm miffed today!

Beginning to think that I'm wasting time.
Hate Big Bird, and Grover, Elmo too!
The world knows that I like to be unkind.
And that Count, he's a shrew, he's making me stew!

Oh, Sesame Street, boy, it takes its toll.
So go and get lost, that should be your goal!
I'm miffed today!
Sesame Street, boy, it takes its toll.
So go and get lost, that should be your goal!
I'm miffed today!

And here on Sesame, you know the smell of me can bruise you!
And when I'm feeling blue, a favor you ask, I'll refuse you!

Thanks for the trash that you've given me.
I want you know, hope you don't stay long!
A schism through Muppets on Sesame
35 years long, I don't think it's wrong!

Oh, Sesame Street, boy, it takes its toll.
So go and get lost, that should be your goal!
I'm miffed today!

Sesame Street, boy, it takes its toll.
So go and get lost, that should be your goal!
I'm miffed today!

Whoa....whoa, yeah!
Oh, Sesame Street, boy, it takes its toll.
So go and get lost, that should be your goal!
I'm miffed today!

Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Sesame Street, boy, it takes its toll.
So go and get lost, that should be your goal!
I'm miffed today!

Now, now, now, woncha
woncha bite me!
Oh, bite me!
Don't give me that look! This ain't Channel 13! I can say "Bite me!"
That's seven! Seven "Sesame Street" parodies I have written! Ah-ah-ah-ah! (Thunder)

"Sesame Street" is a grrreat sub for "Give me the beat." I like.

Quite enjoyable in some verses, but others aren't that fine
