SPOKEN:

Cookie Monster: Ooooh.. *sob* oh I'm so sad..

Herry Monster: Hey! Hey fuzzy face! Why are you crying and looking up in the sky?

Cookie: *sob*

Herry: You want a cookie?

Cookie: I lost my cookie.. I dropped my cookie.. *sob*

Herry: Yeah, but you're looking up in the sky! You mean to tell me you dropped your cookie and you're looking up in the sky for it?

Cookie: That's right!

Herry: Don't you know the difference between up and down?

Cookie: Oh sure!

Herry: I don't think you do.

Cookie: No?

Herry: But I know something that might help you. I know a song all about up and down.

Cookie: You do?

Herry: Yes I do.

Cookie: So do I!

Herry: You do?

Cookie: Uh-huh!

Herry: Well then what are we waiting for?! Let's have some music!

Cookie: MUSIC!

SUNG:

Oh I look up and see a birdie flying high and free

Herry: Well I look down and then a sidewalk is what I see

Cookie: I look up and see the sky

Herry: I look down and see the ground

Cookie: I look at you and sing a song about up and down.

SPOKEN:
Herry: Yeah I look down and I see bugs and stuff like that.

Cookie: Yeah I look up and I see a tree

Herry: Hey, I see some ants down there.

Cookie: Oh.. I see clouds!

Herry: mumble

Cookie: And you know what else I see?

SUNG:
Oh I look up and see an airplane flying yes I do

Herry: Well I look down and see my foot and then I see my shoe

Cookie: I look up and see the sky

Herry: I look down and see the ground

Cookie: I look at you and sing a song about up and down.

SPOKEN:
You know I look up and I can't see my cookie.

Herry: Well, you're looking in the wrong direction.

Cookie: Do I look at you?

Herry: Wha?

Cookie: Do you got my cookie?

Herry: No, no no no..

Cookie: I love cookies!

Herry: No, no, I don't have a cookie.

Cookie: Oh no? Well you know what?

SUNG:
Oh I look up and see the ceiling and there's one thing more;

Herry: Well I look down and see the rug and then I see the floor.

Cookie: I look up and see the sky

Herry: I look down and see the ground

Cookie: I look at you and sing a song about up and down.

Herry: Oh up and down and down

Cookie: Oh up and down [and down.]

SPOKEN:
Herry: Hey! You do know the difference between up and down!

Cookie: Oh.. sure I do!

Herry: And you sing nice too!

Cookie: Aww, thank you.

Herry: I've got just one question.

Cookie: What?

Herry: If you dropped your cookie, why were you looking up in the sky to find it?

Cookie: Oh! Because I dropped my cookie and a birdie picked it up and flew away with it up in the sky! *sob*

*bird squeaking*

Oh! There he is! Birdie! Come back birdie! OH!
Drop the cookie at least! Birdie.. don't go away with my cookie!
Oh don't--give me a break, birdie! *fade out*
