The Lyrics

This song tells a story about an aggravating monster coming from Sesame Street's rival neighborhood, which was known as Mulberry Street.
Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo
Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo

I am sitting in the morning
At Hooper's on the corner
I am waiting at the counter
For Alan to pour hot cocoa
And he fills it only halfway
While Grover totally argued
"I was looking out the window.
Some idiot's coming in."

Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo
Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo

"That guy came from Mulberry Street."
Said Grover, who whispered to me
"The Mulberry monster in green.
He was seven years old and
his name is Orville,
and he really hates grouches,
as well as... you know, Elmo-
ORVILLE'S IN FRONT OF YOU!"

Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo
Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo

I'm beaten up by Orville, he took my mug and splash Alan
With the hot cocoa I was drinking, Alan's angry, Alan asked
"Why the hey are you doing this... to me now??! Get out right now!"
Orville replied, "I will control... the street of Sesame!"

Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo
Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo

Grover ran out to the outside
Of Hooper's store, Orville panicked
Orville jumps in to Alan's face
Punching him nonstop, destruction
Orville's trying just to attack
Whoever lives in Sesame
I run to Prairie Dawn's brother
"It's a Mulberry alert!"

Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo
Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo

[Whilst Orville grabbed Alan, Alan threw Orville off of himself]
[Prairie Dawn's brother, speaking to Orville]: "Strange where you? You must be from Mulberry Street!"
[Orville, as he gets up]: "I will take over Sesame Street for good!"
[Alan, as Orville leaves Hooper's store]: "What was I thinking? Mulberry Street is full of enemies."
[Prairie Dawn's brother]: "Well..."

Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo
Wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo wubba woo-oo
