Hey Food

sung by Cookie Monster (Frank Oz) and The Beetles
to the tune of The Beatles' "Hey Jude"

Voiceover: And now, here to sing and eat for you are those four fabulous bugs, The Beetles, and Cookie Monster!

Cookie: Hey food me in the mood
For fish, meat or cheese called cheddar
Me eat them all before me am done
'Cause not know which one
That me like better

Beetles: Hey food when we feel bad
We chew on a piece of bread or
Some veggies or a raspberry tart
And then we start to feel much better

So eat it up and drink it down
Hey food we've found
That you are so healthful and nutritious
By the ounce or by the pound
Glad you're around

Cookie: 'Cause me so hungry
And you delicious!

All: Yum yum yum yum, yum yum yum yum!

Beetles: Hey food can't put you down
If you're dry toast or something wetter
Whenever we take you off of a plate
We feel so great

Cookie: And me feel better, better, better, better

All: Better, better, better, oooooooo!

background "yeah"s and "better"s as Cookie Monster starts eating everything in sight
