Let's Make A Face

Prairie Dawn: The Sesame Street Little Theater proudly presents "Let's Make A Face"

Oh welcome, oh welcome to our little play
we're ever so glad that you joined us today
now, let's make a face, it's a great thing to do
we'll start with the parts for there are quite a few

Ernie: These are a part of the face it is true
Sometimes they're greenish or brown, black, or blue
You use them to see with, they call them your eyes
whatever the color, they look very nize

Prairie: Nize?

(Ernie giggles off the stage)

Harry: This is a nose, it's a thing that you smell with
It's a thing that a face always really looks swell with
Sometimes it's pointed and sometimes it's round
And sometimes it's worn on the face upside down

Prairie: No! It is not, now you cut that out, Harry.

Cookie: Me next?

Prairie: Yeah, you're next, Cookie.

Cookie: Oh! Me forgot what this picture of.

Prairie: It's a mouth

Cookie: Oh yeah
This is the part of the face me like best
A whole lot more fun than all of the rest
for smiling and frowning and laughing it neat thing
but me like a mouth best when it busy EATING!
Oh yeah like chocolate chip cookies and macaroni and . . .

Prairie: Cookie, out! Okay guys

Bert: You ready, Grover?

Grover: Yes I am, Bert.

Bert and Grover: Now here are two things that are really exciting

Bert: With them you can hear this nice verse we're reciting
For these parts of the face, let's give three loud cheers

Grover: For these are the things that we all call our . . .belly buttons

Bert: Ears! Ears! I told you ears! We rehearsed this!

Prairie: So now that you've seen all the parts of the face, let's put them together.
Let's put them in place.

No! That's not right!

Oh come on guys! Get it right.

Yeah! That's it!

Everyone: Yeah!

Prairie: We've made a nice face, and we hope you had fun.
Thank you for watching our play is now done.
