My Favorite Letter

performed by the Anything Muppets

Written by Jeffrey Moss

Cowboy #1: Now that we bought an "O", here's a letter you can have for free.

Cowboy #2: What's that?

Cowboy #1: The letter "P". My favorite letter.

Cowboy #2: Oh yeah? Why?

Cowboy #1: 'Cause of all the great food that begins with the letter "P".
(sung):There's peanuts, pears and popcorn.
There's pickles, peppers, peas.
There's pineapples and peaches,
and potatoes if you please.
There's pizza, pie, there's pancakes
and pudding as a treat. Puh-puh-puh-puh.
P is my favorite letter,
'Cause of all those foods to eat.

Cowboy #2: Well, I like the letter "P" too, 'cause all the animals in this neighborhood begin with the letter "P".
Like porcupines and pigeons
And a "purr" in a pussycat
A panda and a parrot
And a pony you can pat
There's platypuses and penguins
A pig and a parakeet, puh-puh-puh-puh
"P" is my favorite letter
'Cause of the animals that I meet

Cowboys #1 and 2: puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh

Cowboy #3: I love the letter "P", because the names of my friends all begin with the letter "P".

Well, there's Paula, Paul, and Percy.
There's Peggy and there's Pearl.
There's Patrick, that's a boy's name.
There's Pamilla, that's a girl.
There's Pamela and Penny.
There's Patty and there's Pete. Puh-puh-puh-puh.
"P" is my favorite letter
'Cause of the kids living on my street.

All: Puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh Puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-puh
