Sesame Street – Gingerbread Man lyrics

Gingerbread man, me love you
Gingerbread man, 'cause you got
Cookie hands and cookie feet
You so brown and friendly and delicious to eat
Oh, gingerbread man, me love you
Gingerbread man, but fella, me not know what to do
'Cause you a cookie and a dolly, too

First me want to hug you like a best friend should
Then me want to eat you 'cause you taste so good
First me want to play with you my whole life through
But me want to put you in me tummy, too

Gingerbread man, me love you
Gingerbread man, me want to eat you 'cause you made of gingerbread
But, no, no, no, me love you so
Gingerbread man, me gonna keep you for a gingerbread friend
And eat oatmeal cookie instead
