We Are All Monsters

NOTE: Except for Elmo, we're not sure of the other monsters' names so they're identified by their color for now. Spoken parts in [ ] brackets.

Blue Monster: (to Green Monster) [Hey, you don't look like me!]

Green Monster: [And you don't look like me.]

Elmo: [He doesn't look like Elmo.]

Gray Monster: [Yes, we're all different, but we're the same, 'cause we are all monsters!]

(music starts, they all start dancing)

Blue: I am blue

Green: I am green

Elmo: I am red

Gray: I am gray

Blue: What's the difference, anyway?

All: We are all monsters!

Blue: I am fat

Green: I am thin

Elmo: I am short

Gray: I am tall

Elmo: Doesn't matter much at all

All: We are all monsters!

Blue: And we love to play together

Green: And we love to stay together

Elmo: To spend a day together

Gray: And we sing this song together

All: 'Cause we get along together

(all laugh and dance)

Blue: Different noses, ears and eyes-es

Green: Different colours, shapes and sizes

Elmo: We could all win beauty prizes

Gray: Yes, we're happy girls and guys-es

All: 'Cause we're together
We are all monsters!

(all laugh and dance and run around, then march up to the camera)
