The Lyrics

I was down at the Sesame Street
Staring at this yellow bird guy
This Big Bird strikes up a conservation
With this green grouch who's name was Oscar
He dances while Rosita plays guitar
Big Bird isn't pitiful
He don't want something pitiful
I wish he was pitiful

Don't come and dance,just play Journey To Ernie
Shut up,Maria! Show me some of your trashy insults
Pass me a "journey to Big Brid"
Believe in me. I just believed in anything
I want to be someone like Ernie

This Big Bird and me,tell each other phony calls
Using this telephone he has
"He's hiding somewhere. It's Ernie. Just look for Ernie."
Singing Rubber Duckie
Coming out in stereo
When that Elmo loves you,you can never be lonely

Steve Harvey paints his picture.
Paints himself in yellow,red,white,black and green
All of the pitiful colors are somewhat really terrible
Red is his favorite color
He was so pathetic,he was mean
If I knew Rosita
I would buy myself a dumb guitar and play

This Big Bird and me,playing Journey To Ernie
Stare at the beautiful monsters
"They're visiting you. Uh,you're just crazy. They're looking for Bert."
Standing with Rosita
She bought herself a blue guitar
When Rosita loves me,I'm still acting like Big Bird

I want to be like Elmo
Mr. Noodle wasn't fond of suede
But his vestback is made of that crazy suede,won't shrink or fade
Believe in me,Miss Noodle believes in anything
And I want to be someone like Ernie

This Big Bird and me,stumbling through in Elmo's World
Yeah, we stare at those pitiful monsters
"They're perfect for you,man,there's got to be somebody for me."
I wanna be Bob McGrath
This Big Bird wishes he was someone showing really how funky
When Miss Noodles loves you,Bert,that's just about as funky as you can be

This Big Bird and me,staring at the video.
When I look at the television,I had saw Elmo staring right back at Bert
We all want to be big stars,but we don't know why,and we don't know how
But when Prairie Dawn loves me,Bert's going to be just about as happy as you could be

This Big Bird and me,we're gonna be big stars

There were some pacing problems, but I actually found this kinda funny.

I agree with Mr. Critic. There were a couple pacing errors. It just didn't flow as smoothly as it coud've. Overall though, it was solid.
