Lyrics

Grover's Orange Book: Hey there, everybody! Can you do this? Pat your head and rub your tummy. Try it! Pat on top and rub your tummy in a circle like this. (laughing)

Big Bird's Yellow Book: Grover's Orange Book, what are you doing?

Grover's Orange Book: Oh, we're patting our heads and rubbing our tummies, Big Bird's Yellow Book.

Big Bird's Yellow Book: We? We who?

Grover's Orange Book: We, us. (laughing)

Big Bird's Yellow Book: Oh, hi there! (laughing)

Grover's Orange Book: Hey, Big Bird's Yellow Book, try patting your head and rubbing your tummy with us.

Big Bird's Yellow Book: I don't know, Grover's Orange Book. I'll look silly.

Grover's Orange Book: Silly is fun, Big Bird's Yellow Book.

Big Bird's Yellow Book: I'm not really good at that kind of thing.

Grover's Orange Book: How do you know if you don't even try?

Big Bird's Yellow Book: Gym wasn't my best subject. How about a rousing game of Pinochle instead, huh?

Grover's Orange Book: Oh, come on, Big Bird's Yellow Book, we'll help you, right? Let's help my old buddy Big Bird's Yellow Book rub his tummy and pat his head, okay?

Big Bird's Yellow Book: There's music, too?

Grover's Orange Book: (spoken) Everything's better with music, Big Bird's Yellow Book.
(singing) Rub your tummy, just like this
Rub it all day long!
Rub your tummy, rub it hard
While we sing our song (Big Bird's Yellow Book: I think I can do that.)
Come on!
Rub, rub, rubba, rub
Rub, rub, rubba, rub
Rub, rub, rubba, rub
Rub, rub, rubba, rub
Rub, rub, rubba, rub, rub
Play and sing along


Big Bird's Yellow Book: Hey, Grover's Orange Book, I think I've got it!

Grover's Orange Book: (spoken) He thinks he's got it! (laughing) Now try the pat part, Big Bird's Yellow Book.
(singing) Pat your head, just like this
Pat it all day long!
Pat your head, but not too hard (Big Bird's Yellow Book: This is kind of awkward for me.)
And sing our silly song (Big Bird's Yellow Book: I have a high forehead, you know.)
Pat, pat, patta, pat
Pat, pat, patta, pat
Pat, pat, patta, pat (Big Bird's Yellow Book: This isn't so hard.)
Pat, pat, patta, pat
Pat, pat, patta, pat, pat
Sing our silly song


Big Bird's Yellow Book: Oh, this I could do all day!

Grover's Orange Book: Okay then, let's put it all together!

Big Bird's Yellow Book: All together?

Grover's Orange Book: (singing) Rub your tummy, pat your head! (Big Bird's Yellow Book: At the same time?)
Play and sing along- (Big Bird's Yellow Book: I don't know, Grover's Orange Book.)
As we sing our very, very (Big Bird's Yellow Book: Is that possible?)
Merry silly song (laughing)
(spoken) How are you doing there, Big Bird's Yellow Book?


Big Bird's Yellow Book: Grover's Orange Book, I'm trying to concentrate.

Grover's Orange Book: Gee, Big Bird's Yellow Book, I think you're rubbing your head and patting your tummy.

Big Bird's Yellow Book: Wait, wait, look at that! I'm doing it, I got rhythm, I got control! I've got hand eye coordination!

Grover's Orange Book: (spoken) Good for you, Big Bird's Yellow Book! And how are you doing? Are you patting your head and rubbing your tummy too?
(singing) Rub, rub, rubba, pat,
Pat, pat, patta, rub,
Rub, rub, rubba, pat (Big Bird's Yellow Book: Yeah! We're grooving now! (laughing))
Pat, pat, patta, rub,
Rub, pat, a pat pat,
come and play along!


Big Bird's Yellow Book: Pat, pat, patta, pat
Rub, rub, rubba, rub
Pat, pat, patta, pat
Rub, rub, rubba, rub


Grover's Orange Book: I have to go meet Rubber Duckie in the bathtub now. Bye, everybody!

Big Bird's Yellow Book: (singing) Come and play along, yeah!
(spoken) Hey, Grover's Orange Book, try this one! Grover's Orange Book? Huh. Hey, catch this, pat your head, rub your tummy, hop on one foot and recite, "Mary Had a Little Pigeon". (clearing throat)
Mary had a little pigeon
who soared up in the sky
and everywhere that Mary went,
the pigeon was sure to fly.
If my gym teacher could see me now. (laughing)
