Cookie Monster: Me do anything for cookie!

Grover: It is I, your furry pal, Grover!

Fat Blue: Ah, what a beautiful day! I really should come here more often. It's much nicer to have lunch here in the park where there aren't any waiters! [Grover suddenly comes in, playing a guitar.] Oh no...
Grover: Ha-ha, yes, it is I, Grover!
Fat Blue: The very waiter I was hoping to get away from!
Grover: Uh, excuse me sir, but I am not a waiter.
Fat Blue: Well of course you are; you waited on me hundreds of times!
Grover: No, but today is my day off, and on my day off, I am a writer and singer of songs!
Fat Blue: Of all the benches in all the parks in the world, I had to pick this one!
Grover: I looooove making music! And I looooove singing! La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la! And I looooove to find words that sound the same, words that rhyme! Sir, would you care to make a request?
Fat Blue: I certainly would.
Grover: Oh good!
Fat Blue: Go away! And let me have my lunch.
Grover: Hmm. Well, that is two requests actually, but I will be glad to oblige. [starts playing and singing]
Go away, take a ride, take a walk!
Do not stay, I have no time to talk!
Yesterday I could pass for some fun,
But today I must ask you to run!
Go away, make it far,
Go away, take the car,
Don't delay, please just scram,
Do not play where I aaaaammm!
Go away, make it far--
Grover: Oh! Well you are right; that is enough of "Go Away!" And now, a little tune I like to call, "Let Me Have My Lunch!" [starts playing again]
Fat Blue: Ugh...
Grover: This is the vamp, I love this part! You can tap your foot if you like.
[singing] Let me have my lunch,
Yes I'm eager for a bite!
Let me have my lunnnnch,
'Cause it's such a pretty sight!
There you go, sir! Two beautiful songs with many cute rhymes. Like, um, like "away" and "a-play" and "stay", and uh, "bite", "bite" and "sight", yes, and then there was "walk" and "talk", and, uh, "far" and "car", and "scram" and--
Fat Blue: Yes yes yes, that's just swell!
Grover: Swell indeed! In fact, all the rhyming has made me quite hungry for my lunch.
Fat Blue: Ugh, take mine!
Grover: Oh, that is very kind of you, sir. But what about your lunch?
Fat Blue: Well, I was thinking of that restaurant where you work!
Grover: Oh, but sir, I will not be there!
Fat Blue: Ah, exactly! [walks off]
Grover: Wait, sir! I shall play for you while you eat! [gives chase]
