a takeoff of Isaac Hayes' "The Theme From 'Shaft' "

He's shaggy, he's blue
And he knows how to chew - COOKIE!
Can you dig it?
You think you can munch
Brother, you're out to lunch
Compared with - COOKIE!
Did someone say "Lunch?"
You can give him the sun
You can give him the moon
But me trade them both in
For just one big macaroon!
Let's hear it! COOKIE!
Yeah for Cookie!
Don't try to outeat him
There's no way you can beat him
Me the greatest!
Yah, it really a trip
To watch me chew choc'late chip
Here me go!
(gobbling noises) COOKIE! COOKIE!
If you offered him treasure
Will he take it?
Darn tootin', but you know me would
Get a lot more pleasure from Fig Newton!
Yeah! More cookies!
No more cookies!
Whose appetite is completely outta sight? COOKIE's!
You say you can eat?
The guarantee can't compete
ME so hungry!
What me do?
Oh, me know!
Me eat this record!
(ferocious munching sounds)
