Sesame Street – But I Like You lyrics

Ernie: Bert? Hey, Bert? Bert?

Bert: Ernie, what is it? I'm trying to sleep.

Ernie: Hey, Bert, did you ever think about all the things you like?

Bert: Well sure, Ernie, but not now, huh?

Ernie: Yeah but, just tell me something you like, Bert.

Bert: Ernie, I'm trying to sleep.

Ernie: Oh come on, Bert, just one. Just name one thing that you like okay? Name just one.

Bert: Alright, Ernie, I'll try.

Sung:

I like paper clips

Ernie: Paper clips?

Bert: Paper clips!
I like bottle caps

Ernie: Bottle caps

Bert: Bottle caps!
I love pigeons, yeah

Ernie: Pigeons?

Bert: Love pigeons, oh, yes I do

Ernie: Well, Bert, you know
I don't really like any of those things
But I like you

Bert: Aw, Ernie

Ernie: I like playing jokes

Bert: Playing jokes.

Ernie: Playing jokes!
Love my rubber duck

Bert: Rubber duck.

Ernie: Rubber duckie!

Ernie: I like bubble gum

Bert: Bubble gum.

Ernie: Bubble gum! Yes I do

Bert: Well now, Ernie
I'm not crazy 'bout any of those things
But I like you

Ernie: I like to lie awake
In bed at night and talk to you

Bert: Yeah, I know
I like to say goodnight and go to sleep

Ernie: I like to go and see the big hippopotamus in the zoo

Bert: Hey, Ernie, you know what?

Ernie: What, Bert?

Bert: I like that, too!

Ernie: I like jelly beans

Bert: Jelly beans?

Ernie: Jelly beans!

Bert: I like lentil soup

Ernie: Lentil soup?

Bert: Yeah!
I like a marching band

Ernie: I like a music box

Both: Yes I do

Ernie: But though I don't always like everything

Bert: That I like

Both: Still I like you

Bert: Though I'm not too crazy about your rubber duckie

Ernie: Though I don't love pigeons

Both: Still we're awfully lucky
'Cause I like you
