I Just Adore Four

sung by Big Bird (Carroll Spinney) and the Tarnish Brothers


I just adore four
The number for me
You can't deplore four
It's less than five, more than three
You can have four doors
Or four dinosaurs
Four janitors
Or even four grocery stores

I just adore four
The number sublime
I love to draw four
It's just an angle and a line
I can't get sore for it's plain you see
I just adore four
The number for me

Ah, yes, I used to fret a lot and fidget
Until I met that dazzling digit
And now you see a brand new me for
I found a number I can be for
And count 1, 2, 3, for (or 4)

(Three male muppets in tuxedos join him)

Men: I just adore four
The number for me
You can't deplore four
It's less than five, more than three

Big Bird: You can have four floors
Or four army corps

Men: Four dresser drawers

Big Bird: Or even four crashing bores
I just adore four
The number sublime
I love to draw four
It's just an angle and a line
I can't get sore for it's plain you see
I just adore four
The number ...

Men: 1, 2, 3 ....

All: For me!
