Wonderful Me

sung by Big Bird (Carroll Spinney)

NOTE: Oscar did his own version of this song, please send it in if you know it!

Who looks exactly the way that I look?
When I am reading, who's holding the book?
When I want dinner, who always will feed me?
Who's always handy whenever I need me?
Firm as a feather in all kinds of weather,
Me, me, wonderful me!

Who is at home when I sit on my nest?
Who wears no clothes but is perfectly dressed?
And if I wake up at night and I turn on the light,
and I look in the mirror,
Hey gee, guess
Who I see there.

Wonderful me!

Once I was small,
Small as a seed.
Now I am tall,
Now I can read.
Born up a tree,
Now I am free-
I'm an I, I'm a me.

Who is the bird who is happy and proud?
Who is a bird who stands out in a crowd?
Who makes me dance
When the music is jivy?
Who do I scratch when
I have poison ivy?
Who is the fellow that's
Fluffy and yellow?
Me, me, wonderful me!
Who says I'm right even
When I am wrong? Me!
Who is the bird who is
Singing this song? Me!
And when I get very old
And my feathers turn to gold,
And my age is a hundred
And Three,
Who will I still be?
Uh, oh, what's the next
Word? I forgot.
Oh, rats. Where did
I put the lyrics?
Oh Me! Wonderful Me!
