The Lyrics

Ernie's from Sesame Street so that's why we decided to write a song about him. Bert does the verses, and Ernie does the chorus.
Bert: Ernie, do you think they'll scare the bear?
Ernie, do you think you like to share?
Ernie, do you think that I'll try to get religion?
Ooh, aah,
Ernie, should I feed the pigeons?
Ernie, should I try to lead a band?
Ernie, should I buy an oatmeal stand?
Ernie, will they make me fame in this whole world?
Ooh, aah, will they find me a little girl?

Ernie: Hush, now, Bertie, Bertie, don't you cry.
Ernie's gonna try to sing a lullaby to you.
Ernie's gonna take a Rubber Duckie in a bath with you.
Ernie's gonna keep you right here, and lend a hand,
He won't toss your hat, but he might wave your hand,
Ernie's gonna keep Bertie cuddly and cute,
Ooh, Bertie,
Ooh, Bertie,
Ooh, Bertie, of course Ernie's gonna help feed the pigeons.

Bert: Ernie, do you think my girl is cute, for me?
Ernie, do you think she sells my loot, to me?
Ernie, will she break my bottlecaps apart?
Ooh, aah,
Ernie, will she break my heart?

Ernie: Hush now, Bertie, Bertie, don't you cry.
Ernie's gonna start to play a guessing game with you,
Ernie won't let your girl break up with you,
Ernie's gonna watch you until you get a date,
Ernie will always find oatmeal on your plate,
Ernie's gonna keep Bertie healthy again,
Ooh, Bertie,
Ooh, Bertie,
Ooh, Bertie, you'll always be Bertie to me.

Bert: Ernie, is it time to say goodbye?
